Thanks for such an overwhelming response. I am so so happy. Ok i so i just has been to walmart and went to the coffee maker section and there are indeed sub 20$ coffee makers. I was not really able to find any sort of filter but most were replacement ones.

@elnina

Your home is a lot bigger than your tent or your camper. It shouldn't take too much imagination to figure out a place where you can put a wet rag. How about over the shower bar, next to your washed-out underwear? In the bathroom, you don't need to worry about things being "appetizing".

I hesitated to suggest the way I make coffee, which is good enough. I just bring the water to a boil in a saucepan, throw in the ground coffee, cover it, and wait a few minutes. Tap on the side of the saucepan to make sure floating grounds sink, then carefully pour off the brewed coffee without disturbing the bottom sludge. Save the grounds in the saucepan all day, so if you want another cup of coffee later, you can add a cup of water and bring it back to a boil.

My grandparents boiled there coffee, then put a coffee strainer over the coffee cup and poured it in the cups. You could do the same with a large strainer into a bowl or after the coffee stops boiling, let it settle for a few minutes and ladle it into a cup.

Coffee should never be allowed to boil...and reusing coffee grounds results in bitter and weak tasting cup of coffee.

However, I say this as somewhat of a "coffee snob"...

http://www.amazon.com/Medelco-Cone-P.../dp/B000TCZRKW
better yet: Buy.com - Medelco #GF214B #4 8-12C Coffee Filter free shipping
Clothing, Toys, Electronics, Jewelry, Jaclyn Smith - Kmart.com

but pretty much everywhere, where they sell coffee or coffee makers.
its called permanent coffee filter, or golden coffee filter.
Sears, K-Mart, your local grocery store...

You can make tea in it too

Excuse me??
Without doubt, coffee is more often boiled in its preparation than treated in any other way.
Turkish coffee (aka Greek coffee, Arabic coffee, etc.), a very early method of making coffee, is used in the Middle East, North Africa, East Africa, Turkey, Greece, the Balkans, North Europe and Russia. Very finely ground coffee, optionally sugar, and water are placed in a narrow-topped pot, and brought to the boil then immediately removed from the heat. It may be very briefly brought to the boil two or three times.
That coffee sure taste different than the brown water people here drink gallon wise.

Can i do this.....

1. Take water in a vessel and bring it to boil.
2. Add the grounded coffee in the vessel and let it boil for some more time.
3. Use a strainer and pour the boiled coffee in my cup
4. Add hot milk as per my taste ?? (yes milk is necessary, don't like black coffee)

PS: The steps 1 and 2 above can be combined if needed, put coffee powder in vessel and pour water in it and bring this mix to boil ?

I think that you will not want the coffee water mix to boil after you have added the coffee. Its ok to put the ground coffee into the boiling water but just turn it off so that it does not continue to boil. Boiled coffee tastes a little flat because all that coffee aroma you smell while it is boiling are aromatic esters in the coffee that are being boiled away. Like boiling your hot toddy.

You can get a good cup of coffee by adding grounds to boiling water and stirring a little and letting it steep for about 3-5 minutes.

And, if you have never tried it, try using distilled demineralized water. It makes quite a difference.
