Welcome to the 50's
That's just not true. There has never ever been a frozen or tinned 'manufactured' meal served on my boat and never ever will there be. Tinned vegetables at times added to the rest of a meal but 'TV Dinners' are anathema, made by this guy.

I am a coffee snob. My friends all made fun of me for spending an entire bonus check on a Jura Capresso Impressa S9 for espresso, I make only french press fresh ground when I want americano, and even when backpacking carry a grinder.

So imagine my surprise when a friend of mine said he would "take care of the coffee" for our winter bareboat in the BVIs and showed up with those Folgers tea bag looking things.

You know what ...... I was forced to admit that they are pretty good. And they are definately easy to prep and have no clean up.

I'm sold! (for use while crusing only).

Stainless press

Coleman makes a stainless french press. I think I picked one up at Target in the camping section. Boil and brew all in one.

According to Wiki...

...a cafetiere is a french press. Maybe something lost in the translation.
And I would agree with you 12reasons. A french press would be second on my list after a cone filter (with fresh ground coffee of course).
For the rest - maybe a cowboy coffee pot (look it up). Talk about easy. And no one will be stopping by in the morning to mooch a cup.
