I bought it at REI. I was a clearance special. I just checked their website and they are not there any more.

Hasn't anyone tried one of these?



It's a regular drip coffee maker, but the heat source is a stove burner of whatever type rather than an internal electric element. You just set the thing over the top of the burner and bob's your uncle.

I have a aluminum pot that came with the boat, used it a few times with mixed results. Now I buy the maxwell house tea bag coffee bags. It may not be the worlds best cup of coffee, but it's very easy to make. Just heat water in the kettle over the alchohol stove, pour into travel mug over coffee bag, wait 5 minutes and give a quick squeeze on the bag for a little stronger coffee, and drink.

If your coffee is bad then throw in some instant chocolate or Cocoa and make a mocha out of it. It won't hurt and may make your coffee taste better.

Press.
No big deal to clean.
We press the coffee and than store it in a thermos for when ready.
Stays hot all day.

I have started using a larger Moka stove top espresso maker after sailing with someone else that had one. Easy to use, easy to clean, and can dilute the espresso to your desired strength of coffee as needed.

I drink my java BOLD and the only place that has it bold is Starbucks. Okay so you can' take a local Starbucks with you ... but wait! Starbucks now offers coffee packets (look like the old long and skinny sugar packets) that cost under a dollar a cup. This may not seem like a bargain but you can get them at any WalMart, they are easy to store onboard (I keep 16 - 24 in a resealable baggie) and all you do is heat water and pour it and the coffee in a cup. And the best part is it taste like the real thing.

I grind my bean before leaving shore power, then use a press. Starbucks (you wont find me in the store but I will trust their beans from time to time) has come out with a surprisingly good instant coffee powder.... I'll stick to my stainless coffee press until the end though.

May you have many happy brews!
