I like Farbeware classic stainless steel percolator. It makes the greatest coffee aroma! [
Hi. May I ask what size Inverter you use for the Nespresso?Italian mocha pot (stovetop espresso) and small Nespresso machine
Inverter can easily handle the Nespresso and the solar gets the battery level back after about 30 minutes
Absolutely. The original drip coffee maker I have had the same Melita cone type filter coffee making apparatus since 1996, bought it in Hong Kong while working on the new airport. Back then it was under British rule and everyone had tea, so I had to figure out a way to have my coffee. Still have the same stainless vacuum mug that I bought for that trip too!I do pour over. Heat water on propane or, my favorite if I have time, use my Solo stove with sticks or alcohol or fuel squares. I love to use the coffee of local roasters when traveling.
Ive run it from a 1200watt Victron, which worked just fine and yet it tripped a 2000watt no-name. Go figureHi. May I ask what size Inverter you use for the Nespresso?
ThermaCELL.... As in the bug repellent system or the shoe heater?We have a pot, put it on the propane stove or a fire, add grounds after a boil, let it bubble a bit, add honey and chaga, delicious, now we do the same at home. Our camphost friend just picked up a Thermacell, can't wait to have a look at it, he lives outside of Duluth. We'll meet up north of there.
Sorry, I forgot which forum asked which question, asked and I already answered .
Bug, mosquitoes in particular, but I wonder if they'll work for black flies, horrible little buggers.ThermaCELL.... As in the bug repellent system or the shoe heater?
There's two versions. One is the blue rectangles the other is the liquid.Bug, mosquitoes in particular, but I wonder if they'll work for black flies, horrible little buggers.
We've done this while camping but don't like cleaning out da press. The good thing about a paper cone drip is it takes 2 minutes to clean out and rinse.Simple!!! Boil water and use a coffee press!!! Best way to make coffee off grid. But if you have a generator, take the kuerig! LOL
We don't have a Costco account. But thanks!@Susan Premo… Thermacell repels Mosquitoes, gnats and black flies. We love using them. If you buy from Costco, and it doesn’t work for you, you can always return back for a refund.
I have the MR450 , the patio shield torch and the new radius zone model.
If it weren't for a 2 day drive each way I'd take you up on that. I plan on spending a few days in the UP when I retire in seven years. First stop near Dayton for a few days, then UP for a few days, and across to South Dakota for a bit. Eventually end up in Alaska for a couple weeks. The return route through Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and across the southern states back home for the winter. May head into Florida keys for a couple weeks during the winter.Late me add, anyone who likes good coffee, friendly dogs and campfire conversations,,, needs to come up and camp with us this summer. This photo was taken a few years back. We didn't know these kids. Gromit was put down this winter. View attachment 82347
That's seriously close to how we make our coffee, every day. Mors Kohanski, Canadian outdoors teacher. Don't know where he got it.A reenactor friend shared this on Facebook.
A coffee recipe for a Civil War military hospital from the “The Hospital Steward’s Manual,” by Joseph Janvier Woodward, published in 1862:
“No.1. Coffee for ten men.
"Put 9 pints of water into a canteen, saucepan (or other vessel) on the fire; when boiling, add 7 1/2 oz. of coffee; mix them well together with a spoon or piece of wood; leave on the fire a few minutes longer, or until just beginning to boil.
"Take it off, and pour in 1 pint of cold water; let the whole remain ten minutes, or a little longer; the dregs will fall to the bottom, and the coffee will be clear. Pour it from one vessel into another, leaving the dregs at the bottom; add 2 teaspoonfuls of sugar to the pint. If milk is to be had, make 2 pints less of coffee, and add that much milk; boiled milk is preferable.
"REMARKS. - This receipt, properly carried out, would give 10 pints of coffee, or 1 pint per man.”
