    Coffee, gotta have it!!

    What would be the easiest cleanest way to have coffee in the morning? When I take the cargo trailer it's no problem to throw the coffee maker in it but it means I have to have electricity. When I camp without the trailer I don't have room for the big coffee maker.

    What would you suggest for me in order to have the coffee in the morning without electricity? Keep in mind that I don't have a single piece of cookware, stove or anything. I realize that I will have to spend a little money in order to have the java!!

    I'm thinking a little stove with a percolator but that's gonna cost around a $100 or so.

    If you pick up a pot to heat water in (heat on a stove or over fire), you can use Folger's Singles (coffee bags, same as a tea bag only coffee).

    Coleman makes a propane coffee maker also if you don't want to carry a lot of supplies.

    Re: Coffee, gotta have it!!

    I don't have patience for wood fire in order to have my coffee in the AM. I carry:

    http://www.safezonellc.com/trangiawestwind.html as my stove
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/HEET-28203...fl-oz/16879746 as my fuel because I can buy it any place
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Starbucks-...e-8ct/16676949 because I like Starbucks coffee and this is the best I can do in camp
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Stanley-Ad...k-Set/16784406 is what I heat my water in and I drink out of the cups included in the set.

    From the time I put on 16 oz of water (coffee is 8oz and oatmeal is 8oz) it takes me 5 or 6 minutes to bring it to a boil.

    For packing the stove will fit into the Stanley set then I keep the windscreen and fuel in a small bag with it along with packs of oatmeal for breakfast.

    I bought this stove on Amazon.com for $8.88. Butane cans at Walmart for about $5. I use a french press to boil the water, but I prefer the Folgers Singles because the cleanup is much easier. This stove works great, and will hold a decent sized pot.

    In a pinch you can take your drip coffee maker and just pour hot water through it to make your coffee when you have no electricity.

    No fire means a thermos filled with coffee the night before and hoping it stays warm over night.
