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...

We don't drink coffee, but bought a small pour-over drip coffee pot for guests. (Search Amazon for Melitta 36 oz. Pour Over Coffee Brewer with Glass Carafe.) Very small, and you boil the water in whatever you already have, so very little additional to take along.

Isn't that what they call a percolator? Used one of those when we tent camped many, many moons ago... Better than instant, but takes a bit to get that first cup!

Good luck! Mitch

Disclaimer: I'm not a coffee drinker; I can't stand the taste of coffee, either as a beverage or in most any dish/desert.

Coleman has a few coffee makers available: one requires a direct connection to a disposable propane cylinder and has a built-in burner, and another drip coffee maker sits atop a camp stove burner. I suspect the latter would work on an RV stovetop, provided it physically fits on it decently enough. However, both are rather more expensive than the traditional stovetop percolator, which is available from a number of brands (including Coleman) and I gather can make a perfectly respectable batch of coffee. Percolators also appear to me to be rather less fiddly to store and less prone to breakage than drip-style coffee makers.

They make great coffee, there was a time that's all I would drink. Then came the Mr Coffee and it was just too easy. Come south I have a stainless you can have.

Have a stainless steel coffee pot....10 cup

I don't use the percolator/basket just open pot
Fill with water and dump the amount of coffee you want into the water
Bring to a slow boil....watch that it doesn't boil over
When it comes to a boil...........turn burner down on low and let it simmer 10 minutes

Then pour some COLD water across top to settle the grounds

COWBOY Coffee and it is GOOD!


Is it time for your medication or mine?

We've been using a stove-top percolator on the propane cook top in the RV for years, one of the stainless steel ones. The secret is to use one of these Gormay wrap-around coffee filters clicky. Note the 100 pack is not wrap-around, pick the 24 pack.

For the record, a pack is 99 cents, but I have seen these very same filters listed on Amazon for $15 to $20 per pack. Think about THAT for a bit.

I go retro when camping and use a stovetop percolating tin metal pot just like Mom and Dad did.

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.
