Here is the thread I Think they were referring to:

[ESSENTIAL] A nautical shrine for the coffee god

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

your comment reminded me of a bit of dialogue from the movie Girl in the Cafe

goes something like this

M-"It's actually not bad tea considering their Italians, how's your coffee ?"
G-"Not great, considering their Italians"

great movie IMHO - Bill Nighy is fantastic in it

Who cares what psychiatrists write on walls !

I would have picked "living aboard" or "Provisioning".

Ahhhhhhhh,

OK here goes,

The plunger will do in a pinch. It can make very adequate coffee , truly it can, but to get the best flavour you need one of these:


http://www.amazon.com/Villaware-V003...218026&sr=8-15

Simple to use, long lasting, unbreakable, predictable....makes the perfect cup every time.

Its about time anglophones get into coffee but there is still some educating to do

Gear and Maintenance gets a greater number of views, and I include gadgets such as "coffeemakers" in the same category as other gear. In my case, it's survival gear.

I prefer a Melita manual coffee maker. I use the #4 size cone with paper filters that fits right over a insulated mug or thermos. Piping hot Joe in minutes...mmmmm. Never have been a fan of the french press or cloudy coffee.

Cheers...Dave

Waymar, That's the go. My choice for onboard coffee as well. . Yes I can survive, just, with a press, but no way to you get the same grunt. Full tilt espresso machine would be nice but hardly practical for a boat that is not reliant on shore power.

Being There, do not pass go, do not collect $200.00. There really is no way that one of those filter paper type machines can make a cup of coffee that will satisfy a true espresso lover. I'ts much like trying to get a decent cup of tea from a teabag. Not possible.

Dude, Nice line. I've not seen the movie but Bill Nighy is one of my favourite actors so I must keep an eye out at the dvd store.

It better be good. I just ordered one and a waffle iron for good measure! As of yesterday I was unaware of the need for either. Oh God, I am becoming my wife. Well, the NFL starts next week, that should be a catharsis.
