Do you LOVE coffee?
#31
I love Coffee and am forever chasing that perfect cup. I sometimes use a Keurig but I use reusable cups so I can put in the beans of my choosing, i've yet to find any of the disposable Keurig options that I truly like.

Most days I french press my coffee, it doesn't take that long and it's easily adaptable to life on the road.

This is the press i've been using for the last 4 years and I really like it. Also good for traveling as it's not glass and won't break.

I also have this one for backpacking, nothing better than a good cup of coffee on a multi day backpacking trip.

As far as beans go, I'm always looking for good ones, don't have a favorite at the moment, def going to order some of the suggestions on this thread.
I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life.

Alas, I've been to Costa Rica and seen how the workers on those plantations (mostly immigrants from Nicaragua) are treated.....

Though I imagine they probably aren't treated better anywhere else either.

I buy fresh roasted beans from a local shop, grind with a burr grinder, brew in an unbreakable double wall SS french press...yummy!
Use search function to find the many posts on this subject.

Yes I do love my morning coffee and have been trying to decide how to make it on the road. I thought since I would/could use a tea kettle for water I could use one of the pour over methods and not purchase a camp peculator.  Sorry but I do like MickyD's coffee. Blush

I never drank coffee UNTIL the organic whole bean I found 3 years ago. o.M.g. sooo good! Visiting family and company says I've never tasted coffee this good. I am a coffee snob with this stuff!

it's a secret btw.

For my tastebuds, the best coffee is made in a press.  But in the last year I have been changing my approach a bit for two reasons:

  1. presses are hard enough to clean in a kitchen with endless water.  I don't want to do that in a van.
  2. the press' lack of filter passes through the yummy oils that are said to increase cholesterol levels.  Life is unfair.   Sad   And my my primary has started scolding me about my levels.
So I've started putting the grounds in a widemouth pint mason jar, [holding for 5 minutes] then pouring it all into a melitta pour-over with a coffee filter in it.   Easier and less water-intensive to wash but still not optimal.

What I really want is the simplicity of the melitta + filter but with the added ability to brew the coffee in standing hot water for 5mins without pouring over in real time. Does anyone make something like that?

My first instinct is to glue a small piece of rubber to a popsicle stick and wedge it through the viewing ports in the melitta to block the outlet nipple.  After five minutes I'd move the rubber seal and the brewed coffee would flow through.  Here is a shot of the side with the outlet nipple visible:

If it works I'd refine the design and materials.
