    I have been meaning to post a review for sometime but keep forgetting. So here goes.

    https://www.amazon.com/Presto-02835-Single-Coffee-Maker/dp/B00HIXSAXQ

    This thing has got to be the best $14 camping bucks I have ever spent. The DW is a coffeeholic. She drinks coffee like I do a some cold brews when camping....no good coffee, no camping kinda situation.

    In the past I had to run the generator multiple times a day just to brew her a pot of coffee.
    Now I just quickly boil some water on the stove and she is set.
    1. Heat some water
    2. Pop in a k-cup or filter and screw on the base
    3. Fill the top with hot water and pump it by hand right into the cup.
    The whole process is quicker than starting the genny and brewing a pot. Clean up is easy.

    I know there are those that don't care for the "environmental" effect of K-cups, but there are still options. It comes with a re-usable single serving filter cup, so no waste. There are also friendly brands of K-cups, Chock Full o'Nuts "cups" are little more than a filter.

    Looks interesting, I have used a french press for years which works similar, I think and I love it. The DW says I do not drink coffee but chew it :) I finally got her to leave my coffee cup alone, Being in the Navy for so long we do not wash our cups but a light rinse works.

    We have used a french press in the past. It worked pretty good, but she always found the coffee a little...thick.

    I bought and used this on my last dry camping trip. Saved the day! I never had luck with a perculator and pour overs were always so weak that I had to pour over multiple times to get some decent coffee. The My Jo falls slightly short of regular drip coffee but stronger than a pour over. I now use it all the time for my coffee when dry camping.

    I LOVE my MyJo. I use the reusable filter so I don’t have the trash from the kcups.

    Worth a look into for sure. Pour overs typically brew too weak, I add a paper filter to my permanent filter in my pour over...
