GSI Collapsible Dripper - the BEST way to coffee

Over the years we've tried coffee makers, french presses and other scheme for morning Joe. This one beats them all hands down and is CHEAP.

This little pour over coffee maker uses #4 filters and is well designed. I got rid of the coffee maker in my rig and use this now. It folds flat, takes little space and the throw away nature of the paper filter makes clean up easy, using very little water. Best of all it makes AWESOME coffee. We can make several large mugs of coffee, just move the holder from one cup to the next and add more boiling water.

Lots of function for about 13 bucks and available at many sporting good stores, amazon and REI.

That's very interesting, thanks for posting. We have a regular 115v coffee maker in the trailer but haven't quite settled on what we want to use when we're battery power only. I'll be showing this to my wife later.

Most excellent ! I have about 6 of the hard plastic version in the TT and the house.
I'm getting some of the collapsible's to save space.

Thanks, Janet.

OK... When boondocking, we use the collapsible cone product below resting on the coffee and filter basket of our electric Mr. Coffee.

However, we use the cone just to 'drip' the hot water into the coffee and filter basket of our Mr. Coffee coffeemaker.

Our Mr. Coffee has the stainless, insulated carafe so no heated plate under the carafe. We set the carafe of coffee on the table and the coffee stays hot for multiple cups. On shore power, we use the Mr.Coffee alone.

Full disclosure: I use a couple of layers of coffee filters for our Mr. Coffee in the bottom of the collapsible cone. If I don't, the unrestricted water flow through the cone is too fast into the Mr. Coffee basket portion. In the future, I will be using something else to restrict the flow, but haven't done so as yet. Also, because we are making a pot of ~8 cups, it takes a few cycles of filling the collapsible cone and waiting for the water to go through the coffee and filter.
