    For camping I just boil the water with my pocket rocket stove (2 minutes boil time), pour it in the dripper which is placed over my cup, toss the grounds away inside the filter, and I have my coffee just the way I like it. No mess either.
    I really like the idea that the Slick Drip collapses so small tho I don't have one of these....yet. But in the single cup models I have also found that the #4 filter works better.

That makes me 12oz of coffee...yeah I like my coffee to walk out the door

    Some of the cones allowed the water to run too quickly so not strong enough. Others made coffee too strong even for me and that is some strong coffee! I also like that mine collapses for transport and that it is silicone so a quick rinse and it's clean.
    I tried several ways of using the cone,I found that for regular coffee,one filter and for a stronger cup two filters Works for me-filters are cheap!

    I have a similar item I picked up in the grocery store. I don't care for it, personally, and have bought a MyJo. If anybody would like the collapsible one, it's yours for the cost of postage. I'll even throw in most of a package of #2 filters.

    I looked for a MyJo today in 2 different local Walmart stores and they didn't have any. So I ordered one from Amazon. I shop a lot on amazon because we live in a rural areA without many shopping options except for K-Mart, Walmart, Family Dollar, Dollar General, and a small mall with very little variety of stores. Hopefully it will come by this coming weekend so we can try it out during our Memorial Day camping in our RV with family and friends. The upside is there are lots of nice twisties to ride in southeastern OH where we live.

    Simplest way I know... other than Cowboy Coffee.

    Cowboy Coffee, boiling grounds in a cup.
    Let grounds settle to the bottom, sip carefully.

    Re: Another Coffee maker

    I have been through probably a dozen or so ways to make coffee while moto-camping in the last 21 years. I had a few small plastic French Presses (most campgrounds will be very upset if they catch you with glass), a Coleman Percolator, another off-brand Percolator when the Coleman broke (most of these camp percolators have very flimsy guts), camp drip one-cup makers, collapsible one-cup makers, and even a Coleman Drip Coffee Maker to put over a Coleman Gas Stove.

    Lately, I have to say, I have been using the Folders Coffee bags that look like Tea Bags. The Folgers "Singles". Simple and they taste good to me.

    I may go back to a traveling coffee press or a one cup drip maker at some point, but those Folgers Singles make it so easy to have coffee in the morning, I may stick with them.

    I agree. Easy to make and the coffee (to me) tastes great.

    Another Coffee maker

    Weve had some lengthy discussions here about what kind of coffee maker to use on the road - percolator, french press etc. Well I am here to announce I have the final answer.

    Starbucks instant.

    Nuff said.

    Re: Another Coffee maker

    Color me simple if you like but I need know. What is the purpose of the plug on top of the Myjo? It pumps with or without it. I have tried and it makes coffee, just not confident in the process. My jetboil is great but messy and so will supply the hot water for general use.

    Still in search of the perfect cup of coffee. Presently holding best was the free cup offered by a new friend in a distant campground.
    Thank you
