    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.

    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.

    Coffee with honey, my morning beverage for years :) My Autumn brew is a little cinnamon and honey and a touch of maple syrup :)

    Sneezer I would recommend Cowboy Coffee when you have a crew to feed. At group camps I use a stock pot, bring the water (with coffee grounds) to a rapid rolling boil for 2-3 minutes. Then shut off heat and let cool a couple of minutes, and then pour a glass of cold water in the pot - this knocks the coffee grounds to the bottom of the pot. Ladle coffee in cup. The boiling reduces the acidity of the coffee, smoothest cup of coffee you'll ever have :)

    As mentioned before by me, my stove top coffee percolator and cast iron skillet start my day everyday :)

    Pretty darn similar to the way we do it, even at home. We boil water, add coffee, wait a few minutes, then we pump up and down, add honey and chaga, best coffee we've tasted. My husband watched a Mors Kohanski video, he was quite the outdoorsman.

    If
    If you have that issue with the perk, (happened quite a few times with me) I ended up just leaving the tube and strainer out and boiling the water first. Then I turn the flame to low simmering it. I pre fill the coffee in the strainer basket. Then I put the tube and strainer in. No more boil overs.

    Not so much of an issue with me, but other adults who may be handling cooking, or at least coffee for that campout. Might try that tip though next time, although I seem to recall at least one of the troop percolator pots the basket came off the tube pretty easily.

    Ya mine comes off easily as well. But the tube is not hot yet which makes dropping it in a bit easier
