For my non electric set up I am currently building I use a pour over filter (likely the best method of brewing larger quantities without electricity) and brew directly into the preheated thermos and it stays hot without burning most of the day. I also have a Aerobie that is similar to a French press but vastly superior especially if you do not follow the directions that come with it. I will be getting a hand crank grinder, though I am reading mixed things about the Kyrocera/Hario Skerton Hand Coffee Grinders due to the fact that the burs are not supported on both top and bottom, but I do see much choice as it seems to be the best compact hand grinder. I might go with a Zassenhaus Knee Mill but they are pretty big and don’t grind very fine as well. The Orphan Espresso hand grinders look like good choices but are pricey. As far as espresso I have a stainless steel Bialetti Moka pot but I am not thrilled with it but again there does not seem to be much out there that is significantly better so I will likely stick with it. But that Atomic Coffee machine looks interesting, I will have to research how well it works. For roasting I will go “old school” and use a Whirly Pop popcorn maker over either the stove or the grill. I figure it uses no electricity, and it multipurpose as it does more than one thing(roast coffee, pop popcorn, works as a stock pot). My biggest complaint about coffee equipment is that it is almost all mono task devices and take up a lot of room and only serve one use. As far as roasting your own, if you are planning on cruising it makes sense. Green coffee will stay fresh for a couple of years, while roasted looses freshness after a few weeks. So if you keep up a schedule of roasting a couple of weeks worth at a time you can always have fresh coffee even in the middle of the ocean. You might even be able to buy some green coffee directly from the plantations if you happen to find any!

Yes! I had an old blue enamel/white fleck camping percolator from walmart. They give a distinct flavor that hard-core coffee drinkers seem to tolerate, and are simple and easy to use and clean.
