I was with you until....

INSTANT!?!

That would get you ejected from my boat...

Re: Just the Keurig won't work

Instant on the boat is better than a keurig cup on the dirt.
and a cup of instant brought to you in the cockpit halfway through a early morning watch is better than a keurig you cannot reach.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Re: Just the Keurig won't work

That's a good tip about the temp switch!

Our little Keurig mini tucks up in an alcove on the counter, stays put when things are rough and hasn't given us a lick of trouble since we bought it in 2008.

Obviously the taste varies depending on what kind of coffee you use (emeril's bold is good) and bottled water makes a big difference. And it makes hot chocolate and flavored tea for the wife who's not a coffee drinker.

I'm switching to the $3 Melita away from the dock. The French press is a pain to clean up and I'm not thrilled about glass on board.

Re: Just the Keurig won't work

Jim mcgee,

the Thermos French press I pic'd above is not only all metal, but is insulated.

Personally I'd rather just rinse some grounds than have filters and little plastic cups to deal with on the boat (extra trash); something to think about, anyway

Re: Just the Keurig won't work

We use an automatic drip maker aboard, which runs easily off the inverter. I really like coffee made with the manual cone and a pot of boiled water, but I am OCD about a lit stove and it keeps me in the galley until finished, so I prefer the electric auto where I can go sit and read or go above. If anything, I wish I had a bigger one for when we have more than 4 aboard. 10 cups is small, but a stainless carafe is mandatory.

We have the mesh metal grind basket, but never use it. Cleaning is a real PITA! You knock most of the grounds into the trash, but then either litter the sink with the rest or have to wipe them out with a paper towel that gets tossed or a rag that gets filthy. We use the #4 paper filters, which we just pick out and toss. Easy peasy.

BTW, we are serious coffee snobs at home. Grind our own beans with a Rancilio Rocky and brew espresso with a Rancilio Silvia. I'm on my second right now.

However, on the boat, all coffee tastes better.

Re: Just the Keurig won't work

Aeropress has no glass bits, makes better coffee than the french press, and takes up very little room when not in use. I like them so much that I now have 3 of them: home, work, boat.

Re: Just the Keurig won't work

Minnie try a vario baratza when your rocky gives out. Same money and size but you can actually clean the d-mn thing and not worry about cross threading anything. Also doesn't heat the beans when grinding so get a less bitter grind.
Been known to freeze home ground beans wrapped in paper towel. Want coffee when its bumpy put paper towel/coffee in bottom of thermal cup and wedge down with spoon until saturated with hot water. When done consuming put in sink until cool and pick out paper towel. No messy clean up.
