After you buy one and she starts to use it, make sure you say, "You know, honey, ever since you stated using that French Press, you look so much thinner!"
Wal-mart has 'em too

catamariner So awesome that you are so close to casting off! But I will try to bring a stockpile of Peets aboard, just b/c I really, really love it. By the time that starts to run out, we'll be so far downisland that the coffee will be local :-) That's the theory, anyway!

Capnblu I have been fatally addicted to coffee for over 10 years,... When we finally launch this year, and move aboard, I will be a very long way from my favorite coffee, and coffee buddies. No coffee will be the same. Those poor bastards will still be sittin there, in the rain, and I will be lounging on the deck, sippin on my new addiction! ahhhhhh, better get back to work...

Half and Half

Quote:
For me the coffee part is easy to solve. But while I have tried to drink my coffee black, I can't do it. I need my half & half and a wee bit of sugar. How does one store enough half & half on broad for an extended trip?

I purchase half and half from Gordon Food Service. I buy the small containers like you would find in a restaurant. They are super pasteurized and last for weeks without refrigeration.

I have a confession to make.
I am a coffee snob onshore, but on the boat, I make do with a jar of instant. That's right, a jar of off-the-shelf, oft-overlooked, much-maligned Nescafe. And i am okay with that.
Why?
Space. Jim Kirk was right, it is the final frontier, and on my boat, a frontier that there is precious little of. A grinder, french press, bags of beans/grounds, would take up four or five times the space my jar of Nescafe does, space that could be used for other things, like rum stores. There is an excellent argument for the value of a high quality vacuum flask, and I agree, it is a great way to keep homebrew piping hot, thus it is the doctrine I follow... for the first two days. After that i am cracking the lid on the nescafe jar.

And I don't care who the hell you are, a mug of nescafe enjoyed in the cockpit of your boat at sunrise tastes a hell of a lot better than a cup of fresh-ground fresh-pressed drunk onshore anytime.
My God!!!
wash your mouth out....with some freshly hand ground New Guinea Gold. Never allow instant coffee in the shopping bag, let alone onboard. You, I am afraid, cannot call yourself a coffee snob ever again. You have lost that title. No arguements will be listened to.
