Coleman drip coffeemaker and an old 4-cup percolator coffee pot.

we almost always dry camp.
i see no need to run the generator in the morning, to make coffee. there are plenty of non-electric choices to make coffee, including the two i mentioned.
to run the generator just so you can make a cup of coffee, IMHO, is rude.

I agree 100%. Besides having 2 non electric methods (backups) I also have a 1000 watt inverter

In our case though we run about 80% w/hookups so it really isn't an issue.

We have a Keruig, used a full sized one last summer but bought a new on that holds 4 cups of water for christmas and also have a Coleman gas powered drip unit as a backup when there is no power.

Since I lean more towards lazy than fussy, I usually just make do with a kettle (non-electric) and a jar of instant coffee. Cream and sugar = Bailey's.

I do carry a percolator (also non-electric) and a can of ground coffee (in case polite company shows up).

Other than making hot buttered rum on cold nights, morning coffee is pretty much the only time I use the stove in my T10.

Coleman propane coffee maker. The specs say it takes a long time to make a pot but it always has went faster for me.

Amazon.com: Coleman Portable Propane Coffeemaker with Stainless Steel Carafe: Sports & Outdoors

I have tried all sorts of methods and none work as well as this. This is a full on coffee maker that just happens to run on propane. I am taking it with me this weekend to a cabin in N. MN even though I have electricity.

We have a Kuerig in the trailer for when we have hookups, it makes fantastic coffee, everybody can have different blends if necessary. Plus it makes pretty good tea, cider and hot chocolate!

When we dry camp we always use a Melitta drip coffeemaker. It makes excellent coffee and the pot itself is pretty inexpensive. It's a long time since I've seen one in stores, they do have them on Amazon for $11...

Double walled, stainless steel french press for me. I often boondock and need to conserve battery power. Boiling water on the stove is easy however

It's just me for the coffee, and I use the individual coffee "bags" (like a tea bag). It's okay, but I really need to find something new. I may go to the small Keurig as I have a full sized one in the house and love it. I think it would be perfect for the camper.

We have a small Krueger in our Windjammer. Works great with hook ups. Use a Coleman percolator when dry camping.
