I have used a percolator, the Folgers T-bags, french press, cone shaped Malita drip through type and on and on, now I use either my Cuppa Joe or my 12 volt Keurig(ask how I got that).

All are very good by the way.

Never used it but seems good and not expensive. I do have a aluminum esspresso maker i use for non ellectric site coffee. This looks better. And can be used at home for power failures. Lol.

We use a french press and a pot to boil the water in. It's a bit time consuming but makes a great cup of coffee

We have the Coleman drip coffeemaker that sits on the stovetop. Just be aware a pot of coffee take about 20-25 minutes to brew.

When we dry park, I just use a simple Melita. Heat water in a kettle, pour over the Melita with the filter and coffee in the "funnel". Quick and good, don't need to watch percolate.

We drink a lot of coffee and take a 12 cup drip coffee maker. Years ago when we tent camped we took a stainless perk pot and used it on the open fire. Very good coffee if your not in a hurry, but hey your camping so who’s in a hurry.


Depends on whether or not you're talking about that FIRST cuppa coffee in the morning... a crisp morning, dewey, a bit misty, a little foggy... gimme gimme gimme!

I have two of those Pyrex percolators. They make great coffee.

Always looking for ways to economize, get more efficient, etc., and wondered about others' experience with using a propane-based coffee pot... I think Coleman makes one... you use a burner on the propane stove to heat it up, and I'm given to understand it makes a pretty decent cup of coffee...

Anyone have experience with this, or another method?

I've been taking the Keurig from home and using that, but it's big and bulky, runs on 110, requires safe storage while in motion, and, when boondocking, would probably eat up more juice than propane... besides, I only have a cup or two in the mornings, and have some teabag-type coffee singles from, I think, Folgers, and that's not bad either...


Stove top percolator is likely the proper term. For my trailer I use a Vintage Pre-1967 Revere Ware Percolator. I also have two of the Pyrex Glass percolators for fun at home. They make great coffee. My experience is: For a 6 cup pot of coffee, use a lightly rounded 1/2 cup measure. Bring the water to a boil, as soon as it starts to perc turn it down(or it will boil over)as low as you can but continues to perc steadily. Let it perc for six minutes and you will have amazing coffee. If you perc more than six minutes you run the risk of the coffee starting to taste burnt. Percolating longer is not the best way to make it stronger, more coffee is the answer. I find that Duncan Donuts Original blend makes a nice cup.

A propane-based coffee pot is a coffee percolator and dates back to 1819 where it was invented by the Parisian tinsmith Joseph-Henry-Marie Laurens.
