When I saw the title and tafische was the author I was thinking something with a wee bit more alcohol content!

Well, I think you should go find a nice new Lodge Cast Iron Skillet, and pass it down to the next generation.
I have a few cast iron pans, they work great, and a cast iron dutch oven too. I use the dutch over a lot.
I was using an old pyrex glass percolator but the basket broke. I really like those best because you can see how the coffee looks before you pour it.

I did buy cast iron skillets and dutch oven & we use often while camping. Oh, memories!

AND CRABMAN...Maybe a little Baileys is added to that cup of coffee!

In his defense, it's for items you don't *need*. I for one, after packing, driving, setting up and wrangling two yappy, bickering daughters the whole time, *need* the alcohol. It's downright critical at that point.

I also have my grandmother's cast iron dutch oven, which I'm willing to bet was at least her mother's as well. She passed in 1973, two years before I was born; it's quite old. My mom gave me her frying pan too, but she took it back to make my dad a pineapple upside down cake and hasn't given it back! I do have a little skillet and a grill pan that I bought from ebay, but they don't get much use. I don't take them camping - all that cast iron really adds up in weight!

K-cups can be recycled. DW recycles everything. I guess it helps offset the carbon we are burning at 7mpg. Not a booze drinker but wondering if an open container in an RV is concidered such per the law?

My Keurig Mini IS a require item for me as well as the Dark Magic coffee. I do have some Breakfast Blend for my ex when she goes with me. I also have a couple of the refillable Keurig cups and I use Community Dark Roast in those so I'm not filling the land fill up all the time.

Concerning alcohol content mentioned above, Bailey's Irish Creme is great in a cup in the morning. I'm retired so going to work after isn't a problem.

We use the percolator. I've gotten good at making the coffee that way over the years.
I don't use a Kuerig in the camper, but I do at home. I use the plastic doohinkey that you fill with your own coffee, and I also re-use the k-cups. I tear the old cover off, wash them out with a toothbrush, refill with whatever coffee I happen to have, cover them with a double layer of tin foil. Some I've refilled probably at least 6 times and they still work. I got tired of thinking I couldn't waste that coffee in a perc, so I'd drink it, no matter how old it was. With my Kuerig, it's always a fresh cup.
