    Jetboil will boil water in less than a minute. It is pretty light weight.

    Amazon



    They have a french press adapter for the built in cup.



    I use a Melita Coffee filter system that fits right into my thermos.

    Here's a good, cheap, compact stove and pot deal that will heat your water and you use this collapsible coffee drip with a Melita #4 coffee filter and a cup/mug of your choice, but a double walled/insulated mug/container will keep it warmer, longer!

    My dad has one of those jetboil dealios just to make coffee while camping. The stove, fuel and all his additives (creamer/sweetener) and the coffee/press all fit inside the insulated mug. That's a whole lotta compact, and it makes coffee in a LOT less time than a drip, like 60 seconds to piping hot.
    I have a friend that works on the robots at Starbucks packaging plant, he gets me the freeze dried little packets (think crystal light) that you dump in water and you have instant coffee. Its pretty damn good actually and there isn't any way to get smaller or more compact. I know freeze dried coffee in the past was kinda ICK but I could drink this stuff every day, it's that good.All you'd have to do then is heat some water.

    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.
    COFFEE THREADS are almost as explosive as OIL THREADS

    1 - do you want a liquid fuel or canister fuel heating device(stove)?

    2 - will you be happy with boiled coffee(cowboy coffee) or do you insist on drip or steeped coffee?

    3 - can you tolerate instant coffee?

    4 - ultra light or generic?

    5 - are you wanting a device that will provide you w/ a sustainable supply or are you just trying to make it to the nearest cafe?

    w/ YOUR answers to the above Q's, you can then search the BACK PACKING forums & sources for options & prices

    your original thoughts on a $100 price range will get you into the game, nicely

    REI, CABELA'S, SPORTSMANS WAREHOUSE, BASS PRO SHOPS, CAMPMOR, AEROSTITCH...

    all good sources

    i, personally, use a canister fuel stove, a titanium french press(snow peak) & a titanium mug(snow peak)

    http://www.rei.com/product/807754/sn...g-with-hotlips

    my press nests in m mug(pics attached)

    my stove, incl wind screen, fits in the palm of my hand, not incl the canister

    some stoves,

    just this old man's 2 worth

    have fun w/ your quest

    Again, there are Propane Coffee makers on the market. One bottle of gas, water and coffee. In a few minutes you have some of the worst tasting (did I mention I don't drink the crap), oh I mean best cup of coffee you've ever had.

    never seen that one, pretty cool that it's all self-contained and all.

    NOPE. After reading the description that's a fail... 15 min to make that little itty bitty pot of coffee? I bought an 1800's style aluminum coffee percolator for a couple bucks and it SUCKS, but it makes coffee as fast as that thing and cost a hell of a lot less.

    Boy! A lot to think about. Right now the small burner and a percolator looks like the way to go for me! Thanks for all responses and info!!

    I do like this idea, very easy and clean, it just seems too bulky to try and pack. A little burner and percolator must take up less room.
