We used to use the houses coffee make when we traveled which is a big Mr. coffee machine. On our last trip we stopped at a target and got a Keurig and haven't looked back. Takes up much less counter space and a fresh hot cup is just moments away.

I received this one for a Christmas Present about 10 years ago after making it known thats all I really wanted was a top quality Aluminum Percolator for camping.

Percolator

LL Bean is real proud of it (Price) but I can vouch for it being great quality, holding up well over the years and making a **** good pot of coffee.

Hope your travels are safe and the friendships made camping are lasting.

I usually camp with electrical hookups, so power isn’t normally a consideration, but I prefer a coffeemaker with an insulated carafe. No electricity needed to keep it hot, and no flavor loss from too much time on the warmer. I’m not much of a coffee snob, so it doesn’t take more than that to keep me happy.

I'm partial to the old Mellita pour through coffee maker. Boil water, pour it through a cone filter filled with coffee, done. Coffee never last long enough camping to get cold anyway.

I love the mellita for camping. No electrical hook ups needed. Takes minimal space. I warm up a thermos with hot water and then make the coffee directly into the thermos. It not only stays hot but with minimal exposure to air it stays fresh for hours.

I guess we are all different. I hate staying in RV or mobile home parks. I rarely have hook ups. I also travel a lot so I avoid towing more than is needed. A half cubic foot for a coffee maker and electricity would not even come up for a moments consideration.

I was this way most of my life. When the Dr said I should cut down on coffee, I decided I would drink the best tasting coffee I could.

I also carry a MR COFFEE portable coffee grinder that will run off my 2KW generator or truck when needed...


My 200 watt inverter will power my grinder. Could heat water on stove, but my Jet boil is much faster.

I am NOT going without my drip coffee when boondocking. We use our favorite 120vac drip maker from the inverter. When brewing is done the coffee is poured into a fantastic stainless steel thermal bottle and the coffee maker is turned off.

The only power used is for the brewing which is very manageable.

Used to take the drip machine with us on our trips but earlier this year while traveling we bought a Keurig and haven't looked back. Love the variety, ease of use and compactness.

We've been using a Keuring at home, work, and when RVing. We bought a smaller single cup version, which takes up little room. I tested mine with a Kill-A-Watt meter as well, here's what I measured.

We bought the optional carry bag, which has enough room for the coffee pot and a box of coffee pods. Unlike the full sized model, it does not have a water reservior. Pour a cup of cold water in the top, put in the coffee (tea, or even hot chocolate) pod, push the button. A minute and a half later, it's done. Unplug it, no parasitic load. Total power to brew a cup, 0.02 KWH, or 20 WH. 20 WH / 12V = 1.67 AH. This works fine from an inverter.

My wife would take it from work to bring camping each time we'd go. When we bought the Class A, we bought a dedicated coffee maker for it. The new version is even smaller than the previous one, and has cord storage in the back. It fits nicely in a pantry drawer.
