I haven't tried the Nespresso or the Tasimo. My problem with those was their inability to fit a travel mug. We use the insulated mugs from Contigo and take our coffee with us everywhere.

There's no use crying over spilt milk, unless it's on your keyboard.

You will love it! I find the quality and variety of coffee to be much better. Expensive machines though.

It's awful for the environment and so silly for people who are "camping", but we have a Keurig both at home and in the camper. I sell them (and the k cups) so it's a good price deal for us and I am such a junkie now I hate all the other coffee options. Dennys has stopped selling Green Mountain and ewww you can tell for sure. Long live the K Cup...easy, fast, delicious, and everyone gets what they want!

Gotta love perculated coffee!

...x2 MtnGuy,

We bought a Coleman stove-top perculator pot at Walmart 8 years ago and it's all we ever use when we camp. There is nothing like the full rich taste of percultaed IMO. When we camp, the local camperhood usually starts the day at our site for coffee... they love it, too!

I used to go through the ritual of setting up the camp stove and digging out the percolator, but I've honestly just gotten too lazy to deal with cleaning out the percolator after each morning's pot of joe.

My all-time favorite way to make the perfect cup is doing a pour over with a glass Chemex carafe, Bonavita pouring kettle and some quality 100% Kona beans.

I'll also second the Nespresso. Hands down the best espresso coming out of a capsule/pod type machine.

Last year we kept a small Keurig in our rig for guests who wanted a quick cup of joe and a Nespresso Lattissima Plus for when my latte craving needed to be satisfied. But my daily cup was usually made with this: Ingeni Coffee and Tea Maker | World Market. A very good cup of coffee similar to french press, easy to clean, and works equally as well with loose leaf tea.

I wouldn't want to be around anybody trying to press a duck. All that quacking would be sure to set the dogs off.

Just ordered a insulated coffee press from REI- REI Table Top French Coffee Press - 48 fl. oz. - Free Shipping at . With my dividend it was free so I figured I'd give it a shot. I like coffee presses a lot but find that most are too small to make enough for two to have a couple cups each when camping. I'll post up results after the first try.

That looks awesome! Larger size and more forgiving of rough handling!
