You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Blame it on not having enough coffee before posting a reply

I typically use already ground coffee (easier to maintain stores for and reduces having a gadget that doesn't do more than one thing to make it useful), and an over the shelf $40.00 Mr. CoffeeMate Thermal Carafe (sp).

When with shore power - brew as normal.

When without shore power. Using the stove to boil water and slowly pouring the hot water over the grounds allows the coffeepot to "brew normally". It goes into the thermal carafe as it would normally (maybe a few more grinds than normal).

This way when actually sailing as well, the thermal carafe goes into the sink, or I use the electrical cord to wrap through the handle and back into the 120 outlet (while still on the coffee pot unit). If coffee maker is placed on one of those non-skid gadgets- one the galley counter, even when severely heeled - stays in place with that technique.

I also have one of those french presses - but do not like it so well as you have to almost drink it as soon as it is pressed. Not worthy for prepping for hot toddy's when racing in 30 degrees F.

Now if they had a thermal version of the french press - that would be ideal

We have had one of these on our boat for about five or six years - we think it works very well and keeps the coffee hot.

French Press, question

Love the press. Even found a thermal to put around it to keep the coffee warm. However, we have been using a drip cone in to thermos because I couldn't think of a neat way to get rid of the grinds from the press. At home they go down the disposal. Anyone have a great solution to this on board? Our trash container (Freedom 38 boat and trash container) is through an opening in the lazzarette and I can just see the coffee not hitting the trash can.

Thanks

I just keep an empty coffee canister (plastic coffee can)on board, and put the used grounds in that.

French Press is the way to go in my opinion. A barista friend of mine explained the difference in how a normal coffee maker allows hot water to pass through the grains where as a french press allows all the flavor and goodness of the grounds to "Marinade" together instead.

Make sure to stir the grounds when you add hot water a few times and put the seal about 1/4 above the water line while waiting 3 minutes so the plastic seal doesnt lose its firmness, thus allowing the coffee to slip past it when you push down. Also "Espresso ground" is not idea for the French Press as it will coagulate the filter. Use Medium grains if you can. Illy Medium Grain is a great French Press coffee and the cans although expensive are great to use as waterproof air tight tins when you are done with them.

Anyone seen a hand operated bean grinder? I did a quick web search and couldn't find one.

French press is the way to go. After three years of folgers coffee bags my crew was close to mutiney, Got a frech press for christmas last year and it works greak. Great coffee and easier to clean than I thought. A quick dump over the trash bag and rinse over the side followed by fresh water rinse. I can see where coffee underway may be a cleaning issue but havn't tried it yet. I also have drip systems but don't have the patience to use them. with the fresh, boil water, pour it in and press. the drip system means I have to stand and slowing pour the water in.

My solution to coffe underway is Tea.
