Thank you everyone for sharing your coffee making wisdom and passion. I saved several comments for future reference. As we travel, many of the ideas will allow us to have coffee around the world if my current
solution is possible.
I ended up with drip coffee in a pump thermos. I choose this because I got tired of looking, experiementing, and I like drip coffee.
I bought a ABS Plastic Thermos Filter cone holder and #6 size paper filters.
Here is the URL: http://www.sweetmarias.com/prod.brewers.shtml
link. Near the bottom of the page there is a link to ABS Plastic Thermos Filter cone holder. It works with a most thermos and uses #4 and #6 size paper filters.
I bought the pump thermos at a local store for about $20.
Here's my process:
1. Heat the water
in a stainless steel
2. Grind the coffee beans while the water is heating
3. Put the paper filter in the cone and add the ground coffee.
4. Pour 1/4 to 1/3 of the boiling water in the pump thermos to heat it.
5. Pour the rest of the water through the grounds sitting in the cone.
I like the taste of the coffee. Easy and fast enough to satisfy me. Coffee stays hot with fresh tast for hours. Will work with #4 and #6 paper filters.
I could not find the #6 size cone paper filter in the local stores so I had to order them online. This made them expensive. I don't know how difficult it will be to find these filters in Mexico
and other ports
