    X2 on the AeroPress- be sure to buy from authorized dealers. Amazon sells on behalf of pirates and the quality of the plunger seals can be horrible (in addition to concerns of food safe construction). P.S. The hockey puck method of ejecting the grounds can be done without using water.

    Camping with a group/cooking for a group - percolator
    On a backpack trip - my Jetboil stove came with a French Press
    Camping by myself - Melitta Pour Over.

    As mentioned previously, there are several ways to brew up a cup of coffee. As for what’s best is a matter of perception and circumstance.

    Did anyone mention instant? I had some Starbucks and Seattle’s Best the other day. It wasn’t my Fathers instant coffee, that’s for sure.

    As my youngest grandson says to something he doesn't like "That's disgusting!".

    I have also been known to use Folgers coffee singles. They are basically tea bags with coffee in them.

    I use a plastic pour over that uses #2 filters. Since I drink coffee and my wife drinks tea, all I have to do is heat water in the kettle, and we're both ready to go. It's easy to clean up and makes a good cup of coffee, since I usually only need one cup, not a whole pot.

    What I want to know is how do you people that don't drink coffee get through the day? :)

    There is a guy on YouTube, cowboy Kent Rollins, does a lot of cast iron cooking and he has tricks for Cowboy coffee that I’m really anxious to try!

    I'm a little late to the party here, but I just use a Coleman Percolator on my Propane stove. Most of the time I'm camping by myself, so I just use the 4 cup one. But if I have someone with me I will use the 10 cup pot. I just have to remember to put it in the camper before I leave. Having an electric coffee maker would be nice. I have a generator to power it, but it's too much trouble and noisy.

    If I cant have it exactly like I like it then I'll simply skip coffee and grab a cold tea instead.

    I keep it in the Fridge or in one of the two ice chest I bring along. I buy those little pint size bottles instead of the big cartons or jugs.
