Re: things you've tossed off the boat that others think are necessary

we use the coffee press for morning coffee. but for a single cup there is nothing easier (imho) than this melitta pour over 1 cup cone.

it's a plastic device you put over your coffee cup. put a paper cone filter in the top of it and add a spoon of coffee. then pour boiling water into it and let it drip into the cup. that's it.

paper cone filters are cheap and easy to store. i've found that, for strong coffee, two filters will keep the boiling water in the cone longer. the used cone and coffee are biodegradeable and the plastic device cleans with a quick rinse. the downside is you have to stand over the cup and slowly pour the boiling water into it while watching your cup to make sure you don't overfill it.

Dood, Aeropress. Water only needs to be 185F, it's very small, and it's self cleaning. 350 filters fit inside the holder in a stack about 2" tall. And it makes the worlds most awesome cup. I live in coffee Mecca and I won't even drink most espresso shops product anymore, the press makes a much better shot than most big machines. It's all in the science, it was invented by the guy who invented the Aerobee. Just look at the reviews. I've never made someone a cup with it who wasn't totally blown away.

Re: things you've tossed off the boat that others think are necessary

I use the Nissan press as recommended on this forum. I'll give it a 7.5. I assume when cruising, you use a salt water rinse and fresh water wipe. I just got use to coffee grinds in my teeth. I use baby wipes as mentioned earlier. My crew always laughs until the start smelling themselves after 3 days w/o a shower...

Bodum makes a travel press cup. WE use it because you can make a single cup and it has a drinking lid

Re: things you've tossed off the boat that others think are necessary

I haven't done "cruising" in such a long time, Things may have changed. I now have two cases of DVD's. Loved exchanging them with other cruisers glad I had some to share. At 4 GiG a pop you can run out of storage on the computer.

Pretty cool to be able to watch every now and then and they do take less room than beer.

Re: things you've tossed off the boat that others think are necessary

It is embarrassing, I am too old school. I'll give you a DVD and if I don't get it back for a couple of years, no issue. I give you my Thumb drive, I want the back!

Great coffee, a water miser, and virtually no clean up required.

Re: things you've tossed off the boat that others think are necessary

this one is pretty cool...a few grinds slip by the filter thing, but filter is metal and never needs to be replaced...you can cap it off and put it in a backpack and it does not leak...i have had mine for years....

Good point, but couldn't one loan the thumb drive and have the recipient download the file?

HandBrake

It's free software that let's you convert from a raw DVD rip to a compressed format. So all those 4gb folders full of files get compressed down to one ~800mb file. No loss in quality; you can fiddle with all the settings but the defaults are great.

Takes a while to convert a video depending on your computer but you can queue up a lot and let it run through the night.
