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.
