Thread: Another Coffee maker

    Another Coffee maker

    All you have to do fill the MyJo reservoir with hot water from a tea kettle or place it in the microwave. Then drop a single serve pack of coffee, like those used in Keurig K-Cup Brewers, in the base. Place the assembled coffee maker on top of your favorite coffee mug or cup and pump.

    I used a more compact version, and found it best to just let the water run down through the k-cup by gravity alone. Tastes better. Used this on my coast-to-coast last year, will use it again.

    I use a refillable k-cup and grind beans with a hand grinder as needed. Course grind works best with the wire mesh of the refillable k-cup.

    Also, a standard refillable k-cup won't fit, I had to buy one from the company that makes the unit, which has a thinner lid. Otherwise it won't close.

    AeroPress just throw away the grinds if you have the steel mesh filter!

    Re: Another Coffee maker

    BeemMeUp brought this up in another thread I think it was, How do you make Coffee? I have bought and tried many coffee makers for camping off the bike. The MyJo is without a doubt the best I have found so far. If I had em I could have sold many at the last rally I attended. But now I see this Aeropress.....man, will I ever find the perfect cup camping. I need to resist and just be happy with my MoJo

    Dang I think I am going to have to toss my old camp percolator the trash and get up speed with these new fangled methods. They look great

    I've had my Aeropress for a couple of years after reading about it here. I use it every day at home and it packs small for the road. I like the coffee but I think I use more coffee than something like a Mister Coffee uses. Lots of coffee, short contact time, low oil and acid coffee. MMM. I had never seen it made as the video showed, i.e. upside down. I just put the filter in, set on my cup, fill container half full of hot water, wait 10-15 seconds and plunge. Gives me half a cup for espresso or add water for regular coffee.

    I use just enough coffee to fill the k-cup, and let it gravity feed. Makes a better cup of coffee than plunging in my experience.

    Good trick I learned 4 decades ago at a late season deer camp in the Sierra Nevada mountains, is to put a few grains of salt in with the coffee grounds. It neutralizes the acids nicely. We used a pinch because it was a full camp pot and would often just have another spoon of grounds thrown in it and more water while on the fire.

    I still like pour over coffee (funnel with a filter). I like the MyJo for it's convenience when pulling over for a quick cup of coffee.

    I do the "upside down" thing with my AeroPress, whereas my wife uses the traditional method. Both make a good cup of coffee...only difference I see is that with the upside down method, you don't have any dripping thru the filter for the 10-20 seconds that you steep the coffee. We use the AeroPress everyday and you can reuse the filter 2-3 times (if you want to).



    Got rid of the Kurig system and previous drip machines. Tried a french press.and years ago we used a Chemex and that was our choice of coffee maker. But then I started drinking darker roast coffees (Italian/French) and they were to strong for her. Almost went back to a Chemex pot! The MoJo does look like a possible good system...but I would have to use the "my coffee" thingy and stay away from Kurig pods (too costly)

    I like the Aero press, but my favorite go to is the Melita Coffee maker. It costs 3.00 for the cone, you could use a dollar store funnel as well, but if you watch this video you will see just how easy it is to brew a perfect cup of coffee.
