Great item to have. Still waiting for a camping version for my scout trips!

I took a cup of the Green Mountain Coffee, Wild Mountain Blueberry to work one morning and drank it at the office. It was so good I was tempted to get back in the car and drive 30 miles back home just to get another cup!

My spouse and I kid each other about "camp coffee." We make it in an old percolator and never know how it will turn out (sometimes good, sometimes not so good) but we enjoy it. We rationalize it because we are camping...everything isn't supposed to be like at home!

One thing that we do take along is our Soda Club carbonated water machine. We don't make any pop-flavored drinks, we just like "fizzy water." Sometimes we flavor it with a tinge of lemon or orange flavoring. Zero calories, refreshing, and it takes no electricity or propane to run.

We too have the Kuerig coffee maker in the camper. It has to be good no matter where I am after drinking firehouse coffee forever, sometimes I need GOOD stuff... LOL

Could not agree more! We have the B70 in the house, but a mini for the camper, which still takes quite a while to fill a small cup. My mom's B70 bit the dust over the weekend and it was out of warranty. The CSR offered her the option to buy a new B70 for $79. They never really got into the k-cups idea, so I had her get it for me to stick in our new camper. Not a bad deal for $79!

Wish I could find something comparable for boondocking. I hate perc'd coffee and not a fan of the french press. I've actually found the folgers individual bags (like tea bags) not horrible in a pinch. Luckily we only do a couple trips a year without electric!

I must be spoiled or my wife is, haven't figure that one out yet. We have the ones with the oversized water capacities on the and the filters in the water tank. Must be me I'm going to guess.

Must be I am too - I'm too lazy to have anything smaller than the max water capacity - who wants to constantly fill that reservoir? Also a yes to the water filter in it.

As a side note, my new discovery: dunkin donuts new pumpkin k cups plus Bailey's triple sweet cream creamer = mug of hot pumpkin pie. Perfect for September.

When I think of all those used Kuerig, or Kuerig style cups filling up the landfills, I cringe.
We use the percolator. I've gotten good at making the coffee that way over the years.

We also use (and love) our percolator. We think it makes fantastic coffee. Most importantly, the percolated coffee reminds me of my grandma. Her and grandpa used nothing else even with the modern conveniences that came their way. If I could of had one thing (well, two) from my grandparents, it would of been that percolator (who knows how old it was) and my g-ma's cast iron skillet that she received as a wedding present in 1934! She passed away 2 years ago at the age of 98!
