Who has a Coleman Coffeemaker?

Hey y'all,

We have had this Coleman coffeemaker for years. I don't know that we really ever used it....now we have this great little trailer (Graywolf 19RR) and want a BIGGER coffee maker.

So question is... has anyone used their Coleman coffeemaker on the rv's stove?
How well did it work?
Did you remove the stove burner grills?

Just wondering...will let you know how well it works this weekend.

We have used ours for years, it's alot slower then a Mr. Coffee, but it works. We did replace the glass pot with a metal one.

we don't camp with hookups, so i use the Coleman almost all the time.
it takes up space on the stove, so that you don't have a lot of room for cooking other things.
but, it tastes as good a perc coffee from home.

but, since there's just the two of us most of the time, the DW(non-coffee drinker)has asked me to try a french press. she wants more room on the stove to cook.
we'll use the Coleman when we're camping with friends and family.

My only issue is that it is hard to find coarser ground coffee these days, it's so fine (for drip coffee makers) that it always leave grounds when I use a percolator, I hate to see them at the bottom of my cup.

It is slow, but I start it when I first get up and by the time I am done in the bath room it is finished, so big deal. Use paper filters and the coffee is as good as home. We carry a carafe also and the coffee goes in there as soon as it is done. Then the maker gets put away until it is needed the next time.

Its a pain but your local grocery store may have whole bean coffee and a coffee grinder that is adjustable to the type of grind you want, or you can buy a coffee grinder and do it yourself.

Right you are, I've done that and it worked OK.

I guess if the paper filter had more of funnel shape than just a disc it would work better, ah well.

I guess I'm a lazy bugger.

We have a Coleman Drip Coffee maker just like your drip coffee maker at home. Works on top of a propane stove, uses regular automatic drip coffee and filters. Takes about 15 min to brew a pot of coffee but we love it.

Well, that's new to me. 40 years of camping and I have never seen one of those (I had to Google it).

I'm putting it on the list. We have these great plastic 2-cup frenchpreses from REI but my wife doesn't really like the flavor a french press imparts. So, two years ago I bought a peculator (blue enamel) that she does like when I remember the correct time to peculate. But, she doesn't like when I get it wrong.

So, I think this Coleman will do it for us.
