Yes, you can definitely get a coffee maker under $20, and any one of them will prepare a cup of coffee that is infinitely better than instant.

Buy a dozen plain white shop towels. Put one over your coffee pot or a mason jar, with a deep depression in the center, put your grounds in the depression, pour your boiling water into it. Wait till it all drips through. Launder the towels as often as you think necessary. When I go camping, I use the same one for weeks.

Pretty much, but I steep mine like tea then filter through whatever is available.

shop towels are fine for camping - but this is a person's home and having stained and wet shop towels hanging around one's kitchen is not very appetizing.

When we cruise, we take along a bag of coffee and my cheapo Melitta 1-cup coffee "pot". The coffee on ships that's free leaves everything to be desired. It is barely more than brown water, but the water is always hot and the "fixins" are available 24-7, so why pay for a starburned cup of coffee when I can bring my own - whatever blend I wish. I can carry it all in my bag and it weighs far less than the book I carry around with me.

I used to (tent) camp when my children were young and my ex insisted on a perk pot - the number of times it made a huge mess or didn't perk long enough or too much and I decided the Melitta 1 cup was a fantastic way to end all that. Besides, then the water could be used for other things - like hot chocolate, tea, washing dishes.

Well ... , there you have it.
You can have your coffee from the *ground coffee* you have, and do it for *free*, or for just under 20 bucks.
Depending on the quality of the coffee you have, you may never go back to Instant Coffee ...
The next thing you will be doing is buying all these different (flavored) coffees !
When you do, I suggest you get a good coffee grinder.
Nothing better than a cup of coffee from some freshly ground coffee !

Yeah, Gevalia coffee is so overrated, it's not much better than instant in my book. Plus it will cost a heck of a lot more than $20.
