Coffee Maker

What do you use to make coffee on the boat, mainly at anchor?

Re: Coffee Maker

Percolator on the alchohol stove at anchor. Not the best.

Normal 4-cup coffee maker when at the marina.

Re: Coffee Maker

I use a filter cone and unbleached paper filters. Use water just below boiling point. Folgers Columbian or Leader Price Columbian ground coffee.

A percolator boils the coffee ugh!

Re: Coffee Maker

A french press on the hook and electric drip at the dock. I used to have a 12v electric drip but it was small and the press is easier on the hook, imho.

Re: Coffee Maker

Depends on how you like your coffee. You will never convince an espresso lover that percolators or filters make anything other than undrinkable muck.

If otoh you do like espresso then only a bar pump machine will be ultimately satisfactory. thse however are not really suitable for the restricted power capacity of your average sailing boat. Best alternative is probably the stove top espresso pot a'la Bioletti



or failing that then the previously mentioned French press.

So many coffee threads have come before and you might want to have a read of some.

Re: Coffee Maker

French press. I liked it so much on the boat that we only use the same at home. Camp-mor or Amazon.com sell plastic ones that are easy to clean, durable and have an insulating sleeve.

Re: Coffee Maker

French press most of the time if it's just the 2 of us but quantity is limited. If we have guests I have a coleman gas stovetop drip that makes 12 cups.

Re: Coffee Maker

Used a french press for a while, but somebody stole it out of my little gear box in the cockpit. Made great coffee.

Now using a Percolator, and yup, it's not good coffee.

Going to dig the Melita drip maker out of the campbox and use that. Always makes an excellent cup of coffee and takes up little space.

Re: Coffee Maker

I boil water in a teapot over our propane burner and pour it into a filter cone with fresh ground coffee.
