Let's Talk Coffee

There is nothing like a good cup of coffee to start your day when camping. We are waiting delivery of our first trailer (Flagstaff 21FB). Just wondering what most people use: electric drip, stove top, etc.

Coleman 2 burner Naptha stove, Coleman automatic drip coffee maker on top.... Outside on the table

No special blend of coffee, just flavor with some Baileys.... Usually start brewing at about 5:30am (I'm an early riser) and have to brew another when the wife finally drags her butt out... LOL.

I HAVE to have coffee in the morning. I use a small 4 cup Mr. Coffee to brew my morning cup of java but we also have an old drip coffee pot that we can use if we don't have electric. Petunia is a tea drinker so the small coffee maker is all we need.

We have a small 4 cup pot with reusable filter. I always get it ready the evening before so in the morning it's just push power.

Some days I'll take it outside with me and let it make it out there. Don't wake the kids and DW up with the smell.

Keurig if we have power (always have) or heat water on the stove and use a French press. I'm abit of a coffee snob though. Have my needs and not willing to change.

In our house (or 5er) we couldn't function before at least 1 cup o joe!

We have a 12 cup DeLongi drip with a stainless steel caraffe. For the larger RV kitchens this unit is fantastic because it's 100% front loading. That means we never have to pull it out to make coffee...just leave it in place on the counter. DeLonghi Silver 12 Cup Programmable Front Fill Drip Coffee Maker: Kitchen & Dining

For backup we have a stanless steel percolator and a french press.

Like I said before...we can't function in the AM without our coffee! LOL

Keurig for sure. We use a big one with a large water reservoir at home, but on the camper, because of limited counter space, we use the small Keurig that requires you to add water for every cup. Still, with the K-cups, it's very convenient.

I'm the only one that drinks coffee in our household, but for me it's the Keurig. No cleaning pots, disposing of grinds and filters, or cleaning baskets. I have the large unit at home and the single cup unit in the camper. It's nice for the kids making hot chocolate and tea for wife.

Much of the time we camp without power, so we use an old fashion peculator....even when we have electric, so we don't have to carry a 2nd system.
