Coffee lovers, how do you make your coffee in your coach? I personally have been using a Keurig but I'm getting tired of it and the crap pods. I bought a french press recently but it's too small, need to wait until I get to a place I can get my Amazon fix again and get a bigger one. So now I'm using the Keurig pod thing that allows you to put your own ground coffee in it and that seems to be much better than the prefab pods. Using a variety of Starbucks ground coffees (got a 3 pack from Amazon with breakfast, house, pikes peak) and then bought Veranda (blonde) later.

What are your coffee tips for camping coffee?

Uses whole beans and grinds them for each cup, or you can use your favorite ground coffee. A bit pricey, but for coffee lovers, this is a great unit for the coach. And, it fits nicely on the dinette countertop. We have a larger version at home in the sticks-and-bricks, so can probably be considered biased in our opinion.

I use a Gaggia at home but like the Nespresso in the coach. No fuss no muss

X2 on the Nespresso. So simple to use and keep clean. It stays on the kitchen counter moving or not with never a problem.

My problem with the "pod" or "capsule" machines is that you are limited to the kinds of coffee you can get. With a whole-bean grinder, the coffee choices are virtually limitless. That said, whatever makes the kind of coffee the drinker wants is good.

Kuerig has a capsule that you can add your own coffee grounds which I've been doing lately and that has improved the situation.

We have an electric kettle which we use nonstop for coffee and tea.

For the daily cup I just use Starbucks Via Instant packets. I’m usually not a fan of instant coffee but I really can’t tell the difference between a blonde roast I’ll order at Starbucks and what I get out of these packets. It’s easy, quick, clean and a 90% solution for me.

If I need to make a large pot, we have a grinder and a large coffee steeper which is similar to a French press but I find that you get less grounds in your brew, which is something I prefer. I’ll pick up beans when I need them so that they are freshly roasted.

We also have an induction mocha pot and milk frother squirreled away somewhere for expresso and lattes. Those are a nice luxury from time to time.

We have a single cup brewer that will use the "Keurig" type cups, & has a basket to put your own grinds in, Either way, just add water, & a wonderful cup of coffee in about a minute! I love it, because we can experiment with different coffee blends and strengths!
Everyone has their own preference, but the main thing is..."it makes COFFEE"!(y):love:

Being a bit of a snob coffee drinker we have a simple method for preparing the morning brew. Fresh ground beans, simple drip carafe pictured below and an inexpensive frother. Makes a wonderful beverage to start your day. Cleanup is quick and the grinder and frother are no larger than a can of beans each.

We have both a regular coffee maker and a single cup Keurig right now. When our ground coffee runs out in a few days we are dumping the coffee maker and just keeping the Keurig. Going through some downsizing.

A fine espresso it makes indeed!
Wish you could've tried the Ehiopian Sidamo and Sumatran coffees I picked up while in Asheville. Just East of town in Black Mountain, NC...Dynamite Roasting does a dynamite job of making some killer coffees. Sad that it's gone. Might have to do another road trip soon.

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and Sumatran Mandheling are two of my absolute favorites. Great body and flavor. Both are hard to find in my area.
