Re: Coffee Maker

Stove top percolator. I think it is a decent cup of coffee. We use fresh coarse ground and make sure we put the burner to really low once it starts percolating.

Re: Coffee Maker

We use an electric drip at the dock and a very old percolater on the hook. The percolater does not make the best coffee, but sitting in the cockpit make any coffee taste better.

Re: Coffee Maker

I use a Jetboil - comes with a "french press" set up. Can boil water in a minute flat, can be used for soup etc. Handy little tool I discovered doing camping year ago - Home Page | Jetboil

Re: Coffee Maker

Invertor runs a 110v drip to make a full pot in approx 10 mins. We then shut it off entirely, although, the insulated stainless carafe keeps it plenty hot until finished.

We too drink Espresso at home, but a good machine would be a serious energy hog on the boat, as it must be warmed up and left on for each cup. I don't love running the genset until I've actually had coffee!

We use Dunkin Donuts coffee on the boat. Seriously, everything tastes better aboard anyway.

Re: Coffee Maker

Very eye opening thread. I don't drink coffee (tea drinker) but I did buy a percolator to make coffee for John on the boat.

It appears that I've been doing him a disservice. I don't skimp on coffee quality but is it really that bad made in a percolator? He never complained. Not a peep. I have several French presses around the house. I'll start using one on the boat this year.

Re: Coffee Maker

I use the percolator that my dad used back in the 50's. I have a Coleman one burner propane stove. Still make really good coffee-looks like it has been around the block several times.

My Nespresso Pixie machine is quite energy efficient. Turn it on and 25 seconds later I can make an espresso or coffee, plus it turns itself off as well if I forget to do so and leave the inverter running as well. It does consume 1260 watts when making coffee, but that is just for a couple of seconds. The frother is great as well and is quick and easy to clean. The only downside is the cost and availability of the Nespresso capsules in the Caribbean. There is a store in St. Martin and one in Antigua that I know of.

Re: Coffee Maker

Those of you who use a French Press, I am not having much luck with mine. It always comes out weak even though I am using what is recommended and more. Exactly what ground size should I be using? Any advice would be appreciated.
