Re: Any Coffee Drinkers?

This is awesome guys! So much good info! Now in a perfect world what would your perfect coffee maker do? Would you want a set and forget style, or do you prefer pumping the press yourselves? Still use stove heat or integrated heat?

Re: Any Coffee Drinkers?

About 5 years ago, bought a bargain bin, s.s. one cup gizmo from WalMart for about $1.50. It's a heavily built little unit. The coffee goes in the top, 1c. water in the screw-off bottom. Heats up on the stove, hisses like the dickens and makes great coffee. Don't know if these are available anymore but have tried a couple of other coffee perkers on the boat and always return to this cheapo because it makes better brew.

Re: Any Coffee Drinkers?

You've got to use Peets whole beans, frozen, with a hand grinder, and a french press. Otherwise you are drinking mud.

Re: Any Coffee Drinkers?

I love my morning coffee, but I'm pretty simple. I have a 4 cup Mr Coffee when I'm hooked up to shore power and a 6 cup perc when I'm out and make it on the stove. Folgers is just fine for me.

Re: Any Coffee Drinkers?

Just wanted to point out that while working commercially, I've prevent my work boat from sailing until the company driver found and delivered 5# of coffee to the boat. The crew we just relieved had neglected to order some in the grocery order and we were out of the stuff. Took him two hours to find a store open, pay the convience store price and deliver the coffee to us. Then we sailed. Had to have my Coffee when on watch.
Did let my employer know that; No coffee on board, we don't move the boat... Needless to say when we got back into port there was another 20# of coffee waiting for us. I do believe that they want that boat working....

Re: Any Coffee Drinkers?

Yep. A high pressure espresso would be very nice to have. I think one can run them via a dupy inverter. We use the same invention like at post #4, but it is not close enough to espresso. Still, second best in a boat I guess.

Re: Any Coffee Drinkers?

Badsanta,

Yes, the Aeropress is great. It makes good, strong espresso with only a few ounces of hot water from the stove or microwave, so it's energy efficient.

It makes reasonable coffee but I find it tedious to clean. Again, it is not true espresso as the pressure isn't right.

Re: Any Coffee Drinkers?

Himself is a bear with out his coffee.. and we have tried alot of ways of getting him his fix.

The small electric makers took up space in our really tiny galley and didn't keep the coffee hot. We burned out 2 of those before we moved onto an old school percolator, enamel stovetop variety.

Originally the novelty of it keep him amused, but soon the grounds got to be a bummer... and the little parts, the basket and pole, blew overboard one day so that was that.

In between there when the current system was busted he used a melita drip cone and a mug. Worked ok but he spilled it often, and making it one cup at a time didn't work. He drinks a LOT of coffee.

Finally he agreed to try a french press. We got a set from costco with a regular press


and one of these;


They are working really well. He especially likes the big travel mug. He brews a batch in there and replaces the press lid with the travel lid and it is pretty spill proof.

Way fewer grounds gummin up the galley and less coffee stains on the gelcoat...
