That's one of the reasons I prefer the 5 hour, it's more B vitamins than caffeine. Mind you it's something like 8000% of the recommended daily dose of B vitamins, so they're probably harmful, but caffeine wise it's about the same as a normal coffee.

Still, you need to be able to take at least the amount of caffeine in a coffee to have one.

But back to the OPs thread:

The K-cup press seems like a good idea, but you still need to heat the water, so might as well just use a stove top percolator. Keurig coffees aren't any different than any other brewed coffee, their just convenient.

If it really came down to it, I always have this option:

I actually gave up coffee as an experiment and found that my blood pressure has been better for it. I may fall asleep and the keybbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
keyboard once in a while is all.
We have not gone Keurig at home yet so any maker for the woods would be auto-drip:

I also have a Coleman stove top drip and agree it is slow.

Last trip out I didn't take the Coleman because we had electricity at our site (or so we thought) so I only took the electric drip coffee maker. After 2 hours of no power in the campground I just had to have a cup of coffee, so I filled the decanter with water (more as a measuring cup) then poured the water from the decanter into my stove top teapot and heated the water. I put a filter and coffee as normal in the electric drip percolator and just poured the hot water slowly into the filter basket myself....and soon, I had a full pot of coffee. Worked so well I may use this method instead of the Coleman drip from now on.

I discovered Timmy Hortons while in Calgary working at a Power Plant in the middle of a blizard.....One of the best cups of coffee I have ever had. They even had outlets to plug your car in in the parking lot for the -40C temps.

Oh, I agree. I remember working a project in Maine with a guy from Texas. Every day we swapped who would end up buying who a coffee, me from Timmy's, him from Dunkin Donuts. We never did settle who had the better coffee. I'm still convinced it's Timmy's, he's still convinced it's DD.

We use to make what we called Ol Joe. Just boiled the water, threw in the coffee and let all the coffee settle to the bottom it was ready to drink. Next pot just more water and more coffee. Eventually had to dump the grounds after the 3rd or 4th pot. Last pot would just about curl your toes.

I bought a 2000 watt inverter that I wired into my battery string and it brews the coffee for me. No need to start the generator that early in the am

Here is your best deal. Product world - Melitta Pour-Over 1-Cup Brew Cone Black - Melitta Buy the filters at walmart, nobody has them cheaper. Total cost per cup, probably. $.08 cents per cup. Nice and hot too. Those kurigs are a rip off if you ask me. This way you control the strength per cup.
