Coffee

As an avowed coffee junkie, I have really enjoyed this thread. But I have found that the where of the consumption frequently was the thing that made a truly perfect cup. There was a fall morning in the High Sierras, coffee from a camp perc, done in the coals of a fire, bacon sizzling in the background. A cup in an anchorage in a Georgia backwater creek, watching one of God''s top 5 sunrises. A canteen cup of lukewarm C-ration powder coffe, great simply because I was still alive to drink it. I seem remember the simple joy of a cup always seems to be associated with great beauty. I would write more, but I need to go get a refill. Thanks to you all.

Coffee

My vote goes with the 4 cup Mr coffee. I use one on my boat against a 1750 inverter and make and use all the coffee I want. I have found the best to be Jamaican Blue Mountain!

Coffee

I don''t think I could try the instant, even if it is real good. I''m too much of a purist. I''ve found making good coffee, like cooking good food, can be an art unto itself. I like to grind my own fresh beans and immediately filter pure, hot water through them. It''s like fine wine. Delicious!

We are moving aboard soon to begin our cruise. Currently we have a Coleman camp perc aboard which makes coffee that tastes like dirt. I think it will get tossed overboard in short order as I hate it. I''ve had better coffee in truck stops. If anyone wants it, drop me a line and I''ll send it to you.

I''ve never tried a french press, but many of you speak so highly of it I think I''ll give it a try. I assume bigger is better as I don''t stop at just one cup.

Thanks for all the good advise. Great thread!

Campmoor and REI both sell a non-breakable french press. It is larger and better built than the one presently sold through West Marine.
And naturally,,,it's less expensive.

Get a Belgium Drip pot (aka, cowboy enameled pot). Throw all the basket parts away. Get unbleached cotton cloth and make a sock for the basket. Be sure you have about 2 inches of overlap. Boil the sock in coffee ground and then let it soak for a day or two.

Boil water in a kettle and drip it through the cotton cloth into the pot. The older the sock gets, the better the coffee will taste. This will make the best coffee you have ever had!!!! This is the Cajun way to make coffee. A bag will last about 4 years if rinsed in cold water after use and hung on the sink to dry.

If you have a shallow pan, you can set the pot in a the pan with water and keep the pot hot for about 1 hour. No electricity required.

Yes sailingdog will fuss, but after spending two weeks on a charter boat with a french press, I just had to post a reply to prevent folks from sipping their last sips with clinched teeth :-)

You guys are doing it all wrong. I sailed south with 64 lbs of Starbucks beans under the V berth. Here's how you do it.
1. Buy a generator.
2. Buy a 1000amp hour bank of AGMS
3. Charge fully.
4. Install Xantrex Charger/Inverter...2000watts
5. Buy Krups Coffee Grinder

6. Buy Pur water filter

7. Buy Krups Coffee/Espresso-maker

8. Brew
9. Hoist the Coffee Burgee

Simple!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

I am sure it is money well spent.

Those spinning blades can burn the beans as they beat them into pieces. If you care about your coffee use a burr grinder.
