Hey another good idea. Thank you. Question... How long does it take to filter through for a cup?

About 1 minute. They work great. Easy clean up, just dispose of the grounds and the filter in one shot. Bought ours at a kitchen gadget store in a mall. Cost about $5 bucks.
Glad to help out.

Aerobie Press. Use your rocket stove, hot pot, micro wave, campfire rock, whatever... best coffee maker ever. I own two. One at home and one dedicated to the camper.

I'm a coffee hound. I've had a lot of drip makers over the year, but purchased a Keurig a while back. I use Eko-brew (Reuseable K Cup Filter | Ekobrew) cups that I load with my own coffee instead of the expensive k-cups.

DW Kat bought me a new "iCoffee" maker for the trailer to replace the old Mr. Coffee drip that traveled with us. (iCoffee - Home). it uses steam to help brew. If you ask me, they re-invented the percolator. It does make a good cup of joe, stronger than normal.

We use a press, but always carry some Starbucks instant (it has come a LONG way from the old Folgers/Sanka days) for a quick cup (not a huge Starbucks fan, but this stuff is actually very good)

Yes it works very well, this has a lot of advantages versus a coffeemaker or actual Keurig machine

Pros: very light weight, 15.5 oz, yes, I weighed mine
Its also dishwasher safe, easier to clean, will take Keurig cups(so many choices to choose not just coffee), no coffee grinds to clean up or splash over your trailer when throwing it out. Easy to store away because it's small and does not take up a counter space. It can fit inside a drawer, the Kcups take less space too and you can travel with select variety from teas, hot chocolate, coffee etc.
The blue part is microwave safe(or you can just boil water in a pot and pour in). You can put it in a backpack for hiking. I paid $36 for mine with free shipping. I love mine and would recommend it.

Cons: none I can think of so far

We used the Coleman stove top for years (until the wife dropped the carafe early one morning . We found if you could get the flame turned up high enough it wasn't too slow at all. If you are using propane, it could be your issue. If you used the old pump stove and fuel type, you can get enough flame to replicate an electric brewer.

I was drawn to this thread because this morning we are leaving for our first trip with the K-cup brewer for the same reasons as many mentioned above. We had enough years of roughing it...

Do a search for "Let's Talk Coffee". Lots of suggestions there.
