I love how an almost four year old thread about COFFEE, got started back up! I agree with using a press, but use a keurig when hooked up to power.

I roast my own at home, grind the beans just before brewing, and brew with very hot water (205 F. or so). A small inverter powers a simple blade grinder. Boil water any old way and use either a French Press or a Melita pot & filters. Better than Starbucks, IMO. Heavenly!

I have used the Bodum Columbia french press that does not break, for several years. It helps keep the coffee warm and will keep it warmer if you put preheat it with hot water. Pour it out and put in the fresh coffee grounds and hot water. Wait four minutes and then press. It comes in three sizes. I put a towel over the top to help keep it warm. It's only flaw IMO is the top is not insulated. Below is a link-

To Percolator or not

I bought a good old Pyrex percolator and use these new paper filters that fold over the stem and then use regular ole Folgers automatic drip coffee. I know thats old school coffee, but I'm pretty easy to please. jdadoug
