    Wanted to share - Took a chance on the MyJo k-cup device based on recommendations in this thread. Kept the DW from needing a 'real cup' from a local store on my last trip. I now will just use the camp percolator as a kettle, and have some peace of mind and fallback if needed. It brought a smile that it "sounds just like the electric machine at home at the end of the pumping". I'll take that as a win.

    YMMV, but I've never been a rave reviewer of KCups, but it is at least a consistent cup of 'okay'. Normal home use coffee is a grind and brew, but the Keurig is a backup for afternoon decaf or guests...

    When tent camping I still use my Jetboil with french press for single cups...

    Oh, dear. Please don't let that lead people to find out Indonesian coffee is better.

    Time to stock up on coffee like you stocked up on toilet paper when covid hit...

    You can always use some of that leftover industrial strength TP you got stuck with as filters for your soon to be expensive coffee..

    Each and every person hoarding coffee should be flogged publicly.

    Specially, where do you buy Indonesian coffee? Just the name of the store will do

    Not a coffee guy, but the guy that owns this company is. He's also a good friend.
    Encorecoffeeco.com. You might check it out.

    We heard from a friend that he uses honey and chaga in his coffee, so we tried it, it's really great. You'd never know that there is honey, just a couple of teaspoons. Perfect.

    Went camping last weekend with scouts, was able to try out my stovetop Coleman drip coffee maker. Worked quite well. Had no complaints from those who drank it (I don't drink coffee, but was handling cooking). It does take up some room though, but for me was a good tradeoff. Whenever they do percolator coffee they don't monitor it and it boils over, making a mess of the stove.
