In about a years time, we experienced 3 major multi-day power outages at home. The old stove top percolator sure came in handy and the coffee was delicious too! I was making the rounds with coffee for the neighbors each morning and it was appreciated by all.

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!!!
The Eccocup is user friendly to those that only drink one or two cups of coffee where in the conventional sense the pot would go to waste.

That makes sense.

I guess cause I drink 4 or 5 cups it doesn't make sense for me.

I am the inpatient sort of person and can not wait for my coffee to get done in the am. And some mornings a few pots of coffee are in order while camping. the first pot goes into my bubba mug to take out on the lake in the boat fishing. Then the second pot to go with breakfast when I come in from the lake.
We have the Bunn in our stick house and in the camper. It brews a pot in minutes and recovers fast for the second pot. I also keep my old percolator pot for on the colman stove for if the power goes out!!!!

Pour over method

I prefer the pour over method for making coffee.

Melitta® Thermal Stainless 8-Cup Pour-Over Coffeemaker

Pour Over brewing takes a bit of time and manual work. It does not use electric like the automatic drip coffee makers.

If you have the time and like the fun, you'll enjoy the rich taste and flavors of the pourover coffee. It allows you full control over the brew.

Personally, I like to brew coffee with a filter-cone, but have to confess that it is in fact a bit tedious and can make a little mess if you are not careful enough. When I don't have the time, I just turn on my auto drip and have it make the coffee for me. Of course, when I do make coffee with pour over coffee makers I really like the delicious taste and temperature of the coffee.



Pour Over Brewer Advantages

The pourover coffee maker method is good because...

It makes great-tasting, rich-flavored coffee.
It allows you full control over the coffee brewing.
It has a small footprint.
It is affordable.
It spares the problems common with electric coffee makers (spills, malfunctions and more).
Clean up is easy, unlike the mess left by another rich-flavored coffee maker - French Press coffee maker.
You can also use regular grind, instead of the coarser grind rather recommended for French Press coffeemakers.
It eliminates bitterness of the coffee.
It does not require a power connection.
It makes really hot coffee, brewed by a kettle, unlike many electric coffeemakers that brew at lower temperatures. The higher temperatures are good for both more flavor extraction of the coffee beans, and simply serving a hot cup of coffee.


Pour-Over Drawback

One drawback is that the coffee will cool soon if you don’t drink it right after brewing as it doesn’t have a hot plate to keep it warm, unless you put the unused coffee immediately in a thermos to keep its heat.

We take the Kurig when we go camping. The coffee pods we purchase from Costco in Kalispell, MT. I don't recall the full name of the pods because I've run out now but I know they are only $25 for a box of about 80 and had San Francisco in the name. They were not the usual K-cups - these had sort of a fine mesh rounded bowl under the foil cap. This mesh isn't pierced from below like the ordinary K-cup as the water (coffee) drains through. If I make this in a contigo travel mug (Costco again) I can nurse one large cup for several hours.

Roll on summer when I can get back down to MT with the trailer and stock up with coffee (and good very strong cheddar from Costco).

+ 1 for a percolater. Coming from a tenting perspective it's simple to make a cuppa brew whether using a fire or a stove. Most important is what brand of coffee you like and how strong. One has control over those things. Additional flavour may come from cream or sugar or Bailey's or other. While other systems may be easier milady & myself find brewing a pot of coffee over a flame to be part of the morning ritual, to be savoured along with whatever breakfast we decide on and while deciding what adventure we will get up to that day.

being famous for my "thriftiness", i wouldn't buy a Keurig, because of the cost for the cups. but i found a Keurig Special Edition on clearance at Walmart.
so, i bought it but was going to return it if i couldn't find a way to get cups for 50 cents or less.
i found the ones mentioned above, San Francisco Bay French Roast(box of 80). they cost about 34 cents each.
and Costco, under the Kirkland name, just came out with their own Keurig cups, in a box of 100. i think they are about 40 cents a cup.
and i buy at Kohl's, when i get a 30% off coupon. i then get them to price match Walmart's price of a box of 18 at $10.88. that brings the per cup price to about 42 cents and i can get a variety of flavors there.

so, with a little research, i happily use my Keurig but i don't take it dry camping. use my little 4 cup percolator or my Coleman stovetop drip maker.
