Re: Coleman Propane coffee maker
I saw one in Costco and, although initially interested, wondered why anyone would buy one when you can boil water with a pot on a propane stove, then pour the boiling water into a French Press, or use a percolator on a propane stove to make coffee. The propane stove, unlike the propane coffee maker, can be used for a variety of cooking purposes, as can the coffee pot in which I boil water. My French Press is lightweight and takes up very little room.
Space is at a premium on a boat. I also try to minimize weight. Why buy a bulky, unnecessary, single-purpose item, when an ordinary multi-purpose item fulfills the same requirement?
Seems like an unnecessary gimmick to me...
