[ESSENTIAL] A nautical shrine for the coffee god
On a recent expedition, it was brought home to me that simply pouring boiling water into a filter-lined plastic filter holder over a drippy Thermos was not appeasing my coffee jones in the mornings. I have considered a Pyrex Bodum coffee press affair, but what I would like to hear about are SUCCESSFUL and DURABLE coffee makers that either work on 12 VDC or via inverter/switched that are mounted from the top under cabinetry and can work via the usual drip filter method.
Gimbals are optional. If it's that lumpy, I can percolate it (ack!) or do espresso on the gimballed stove.
It's surprising what an issue this is, but then I grind my own blend at home and would rather have one mug of great coffee than a pot of insipid compromise.
I am going to be getting a Forespar (or Force 10...can't remember) gimballed single-burner propane bulkhead stove thingie for the pilothouse in very heavy weather to do soup, etc., but that's not going to be an everyday thing.
