Try using a generous amount of ground coffee in a mug of boiling water. Then use sweetened condensed milk to help the coffee settle to the bottom. Just be careful you dont have a last swig.

Just to weight in: Aeropress is King. I'm a coffee maniac, tried everything from cafetiere to espresso pump. Aeropress is as good as multi hundred $/ machines and perfect for boat.

I wished I had invented that aeropress...when I went to buy it the store said they can't keep them in stock...so simple, yet so good.

Ah, geko - the sweetened condensed milk...yum!

- - I might suggest that it is your personal techniques that are yielding the great coffee rather than the machine. However, some machines are down right horrible no matter what your technique.
- - First, good beans - ground - not chopped. Then proper temperature water and finally only the proper length of time brewing that is your success. As with the Brit's and there fanatic addition to proper tea, the temperature of the water and the limit on the brewing time goes most of the way to prevent the acidic build-up.

Best coffee so far is Trader Joe's "Wintery Blend". I stock up on enough to last me throughout the year. Great stuff.

Nothing beats percolated coffee for me. I put it in a Nissan thermos.

I'm with MarkJ on this one. Even though I drink "designer drip" at home, when I am on the boat instant is just fine for me.
But then again, I like my coffee like I like my women... cold and bitter!

Not brand specific

I am not very brand specific, long as it's got chickory in it, and it's strong. I make mine in a plain ol blue metal percolator from wally world. Drink it all day long. There is nothing better than a good hot cup of coffee, on a mid night watch, in nice weather.

Ah, coffee-- motivation in a cup. I'd never get anything done without it.

Decaf is OK, you just have to drink 5 times as much.

The best cuppa coffee is the one handed to me by someone else. Bitter and strong-smelling, just like me!

I check with consumer reports on coffee. Regular coffee the recommend is 8 oclock coffee. I buy it in whole beans and grind just before running the drip coffee maker. I was stunned when I tried it. Much better than most all other coffees I've had. MUCH BETTER! For decaffe they recommend Dunkin Donuts decaf. Personally I prefer perked or dripped over French or any other style. The secret is finding a drip coffee maker that keeps water hot in the basket. Mr Coffee is one of the recommended coffe makers considered of "Decent Coffee". And you guys didn't think someone would make a study of it!

I have used a coffee press since getting the boat and find that it takes much more coffee than a drip machine for the same strength.
