electric Mr. Coffee with timer when we have electricity and a perk pot when we don't.
Nice to wake up to the smell of coffee brewing in the morning,

HAHA I know what you mean about the Baileys!!

Others have also mentioned using the ecocup. To me that seems to take away the convenience of the whole KCup system. The ability to just use the cup and throw away was the main reason to use them otherwise its the same amount of work. Except now that work is for each and every cup vs each pot.

Oh well it's going to be a while before I invest in one as we have a brand new coffee maker in the trailer now.

Oh and welcome to the forum!!!

Walmart (ozark trail) percolator 8 cup. I use the pre-filtered coffee pouches and just punch it through the stem of the percolator tube. Easy cleanup and almost no grounds in the coffee. I go with the cheap version of Baileys and am usually stirring the fire by 0600. Great way to start a wonderful day in the woods!

Pretty much all of the above.

We carry our Bosch Tassimo machine for decaf cappuccino or hot chocolate in the evening; and a hot mug of great coffee in the morning (when we have electric).

When no hookup camping, I carry a blue porcelain "cowboy" coffee pot and a couple pounds of Starbucks for the gas stove.

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

Large Keurig brewer at home and the small one cup job for camping. The wife likes the mild brew and I like the bold. Have the old stove top brewer as a back up.

don't get the off brand Keurigs - our Mr. Coffee travel size doesn't fit travel mugs.

I have a single-serve Mr. Coffee Kuerig maker and it does take a travel mug, you just don't use the drain plate at the bottom so the mug sits lower...

oh yeah - tried that trick already, and use it on the home keurig. For whatever reason this one sits about 1/4 to 1/2 inch too short. Just enough for you to reeeeeeally hate the thing.

Now that you mention it, while it does fit a travel mug, it does not fit the taller ones. I too have some mugs that won't fit.

It's not the equipment it's what you put in it.
I won't support keurig, they'll be the death of premium coffee since the not only control the equipment but also the product, they decide hat you get and at what quality, and because you're choosing from who they partnered with, none of them gold cup standard coffees, those entrepreneurs and roasters breaking new ground no longer have a device to sell to in your home.

I know it's a rant. So be it.
