I attest to enjoying coffee made this way.

Okay, made it this morning. Coffee directly into the pot, no perk basket. Small shot glass of cold water down the spout when boiling.


Turned out rather well, far less, FAR, FAR less grounds than with the perk basket. Tasty and not the 3 step hassle of the perk basket. It still remains to be tested against my Monday morning office thermos, but I may make it like this from now on.

My guess is that very few posters on CD ever go camping.

Well, we have a camping thread section.


BUT, it is more than that for we have a Green Living section as well.


When my office went away from the drip coffee maker and replaced it with a the K Cup thing, I decided I wasn't going to be part of that plastic problem and started bringing my coffee in from home in a thermos, cooked on the stove top perk pot.


I don't even use filters in the perk basket. Metal pot, metal tower, metal basket. All recyclable eventually.


This is even quicker, though, than the perk basket.


So there is more to coffee than just drinking it.

I can't show this to my husband, he'll lose his mind.

Let's just say, he spends 10 minutes making his single origin whole roasted Tanzanian mountain sourced coffee beans (each bag costs like $30), and one of the steps involves "aerating (sp?) it".

I think cooking coffee is the best way to get the flavor, the less filtration the more flavor you get. The whole k-cup or coffee maker with filter method is just all wrong. That method wastes so much flavor and grind. All you need to do is do the coarse grind and cook your coffee and then get rid of the grind with a metal filter that's it. The coffee is rich and full of flavor. That is why k-cup coffees tastes so dead and yucky. They run hot water so fast into that pod and gives it no time to brew.

Made it during the weekend on Sat and Sun and am drinking it now at the office from the thermos.


Two things I will note about it.


First of all, it does not reheat well. Poured the contents of yesterday's pot into the Pyrex, nuked it, and bleah.


Secondly, the grinds might form a tar. I was cleaning the pot a little this morning before the prep and at the nozzle, where I pour in the shot glass of cold water, there was tar.


I think this is how I will do coffee now.....til I hear otherwise.

My guess is the same % of people from CD go camping as the % of people outside the forums (general population).

Camping: two weekends last fall, a weekend last spring, might have to do two weekends this spring, at least.

Back to perk coffee this morning. Was feeling like pooh last night and was wondering if two days of cowboy coffee was the cause. So back to perk coffee this morning to experiment.
