Now when camping it's a different story, we do mochas. Boil water in the kettle on the stove top (no power needed) and use hot chocolate mix (I have tried many, but the Safeway brand - the one that comes in a can and scoop yourself - is my fav) mixed with instant espresso (Medaglia D'Oro) topped with some half and half for extra creaminess...better than Starbucks any day! My ratio is 4/2 chocolate/espresso.

Mmmm that sounds like a yummy mocha! I'll have to coy that recipe down!

We love our coffee, as most seem to, cannot simply survive without it. We have tried the French Press, and have a plug in coffee maker we take along camping if we have power, but at the end of the day, their is nothing, and I mean nothing, that makes a good strong coffee like a Moka Express.

Disregard the little container of Folgers, we were travelling my motorbike and could only find one place near our campsite to buy coffee that day.
I'd likely sell a loved one before parting with my Moka Express.

I gotta have coffee and if you are camping I only bring the best.

Ok, after reading all these posts on one of my favorite beverages , I've decided to camp next to Herk LOL, should be coffee cups~~~

I think i'm talking myself into a new coffee machine....and now I've got some good idears

Have you seen the tervis tumbler mugs? we have one that holds 12 oz I think and it fits under my coffee maker really well. If I remove the drain plate, I can use the midsize tervis tumblers. just a thought....

lol, after reading these posts, I think about my own camper and what I use....... oops. just gave my "extra" coffee pot to DD to take to college..... may investigate the perculators..... we're city slickers, prefer beach camping, and there's usually a good cup of coffee within a reasonable distance. Still, there's nothing like waking up to a fresh pot

Keurig at home. French press or percolator in the camper. We have an electric and stovetop kettle. I make my coffee and DW can make her tea.

Bunn here too (at home and camping). Fresh ground. Not too picky on coffee beans though. Just about anything in the dark roast section. Like to try different kinds.
