We found our small Keurig at Wal-mart for $99, but it's been a while. It has a much lower profile than our larger one at home, which really makes it perfect for camper use. But it won't take the tall coffee cups like the big ones do.

We use an auto-drip coffee maker, but at home we have an old stove top percolator pot we use in the case of power outages. I have to admit, those old pots indeed make the best coffee!

Small Keurig is the way to go, with green mountain Sumatra extra bold. Yum yum. 1k inverter works fine for the short time the heater is on...

Smile Keurig

We need our coffee and dark roast extra bold is what we like. We've had for years an Bunn coffee maker that always had hot water in the tank. We used it at home and moved it to the 5er when we left the house. Just a couple weeks ago it stopped getting hot and after a couple cleanings with vinegar water and still not heating, we dumped it and got the Keurig with the water reservoir and it works great, even got the drawer case that it sets on to keep the coffee in the drawer. Very nice, no waist, no filter, no stored coffee beans or grinder.. This is the way to go. Check them out if you will be shopping for a new coffee maker.
Oh did I mention it makes tea, hot coco, Decaff if you like it and also since we had our regular coffee to grind, we bought the little strainer-cup used for the Keurig and put our own ground coffee in it for a cup of what we used in our Bunn.

We have our Keirig. I like my coffee DW likes her tea and we both like hot chocolate. Will be trying the ice tea this summer. We also purchased the filter so we can use our favorite blend of coffee.

Four Cup AUTO-----------

We use a four cup auto, and a stove top Stainless 10 cup when no power.

I use to "8 O'Clock" beans (OLD A&P), I grind my beans course (Best flavor). I'm an old NAVY COFFEE DRINKER, so I like to cut my coffee off at the spout with a knife!

Like it black!

I am the only who drinks (loves) coffee. The DW could care less about it. I use a 4 cup Mr Coffee in the RV and a 12 cup Oster at home. My coffee of choice is Folgers Colombian. Make a great cup of coffee.

I use Community Dark Roast. most any drip will do but prefer using an espresso maker.
when i was in the navy, i replaced the navy coffee with this one and liked to killed a couple of my fellow sailors. my wife also has problems with the dark roast.

i like it strong. but u can do the same thing with medium roast. the roast only affects the flavor.

We use a Coleman when dry camping...

And our old one from home that we had replaced with a Keurig. It still makes great coffee and does a Yeoman's job for those times we have an electric site.
