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[/QUOTE]


Ordered one last night. Hardly wait.

I use a Drip-O-Lator... they work great when no electricity is available. See: Vtg Revere Ware Pre 1968 Drip O Lator Coffee Pot Clean Amp Shiny | eBay

Make sure you get one in stainless steel and not aluminum

Coffee percolator, if it works why try and fix it?

I have one of those Enamelware percolator from like 15 years ago it still make dang good coffee.

I'm surprised the Aeropress did not get more ink...

Easy to use, easy to clean and makes extraordinary coffee.

At $25 it's a steal.

I have gone through a few pots over the last decade. Standard mr coffee, then a bunn phase brew (looked cool, but was all over the place on temps. Recently I purchased a Bonavita 1800 thermal coffee pot. It brews constantly, quickly and does not have a warming plate, just a thermal carafe. It's super simple, no timer, clock. Just a power switch.

In the camper is a cheap mr coffee 5 cup with Aldi "doughnut store" brand coffee in paper cups. Sometimes simple And cheap is All you need.

Cafejo MFP011KBRZI My French Press K-Cup Single Cup Brewer
Cafejo (2)


Just bought this one and gave it a first try. Very easy with great coffee. Very happy!

Also ordered a Melitta one cup pour over as mentioned. Just to have the option of using loose ground coffee.

Aeropress works great, gives you complete control, inexpensive, and just requires a source of hot water.

Try using a Melita coffee filter. You can heat water in a pot over a fire or an you stove.

We have not gone Keurig at home yet so any maker for the woods would be auto-drip:
Amazon.com : Coleman Portable Propane Coffeemaker : Camping Coffee And Tea Pots : Home & Kitchen

We have one of them for the times when we have no power to run the Keurig.

We use this one http://m.llbean.com/product.html?&sk...47025080#63535

And a lexan French press (also by GSI I believe). Small and light enough to carry both. The cone drip is easier to clean because you dump the grounds and the filter out together. Getting all the loose grounds out of the press is a pain sometimes.
