Re: Coffee pot?

A kettle to boil water, a thermos bottle (the Thermos brand is EXPENSIVE, but worth it 'cuz they have a steel liner and and actually do keep liquids cold or hot for 12 hours...I have a quart size and a pint size), a cone filter and your favorite drip grind coffee. Heat the water, pour it over the coffee in the filter (amount determined by how many cups you want to make). You can even heat the water on an alcohol stove if that's all you have.


Others are certain to provide you with a variety of their favorite methods...that's mine when I can't use my over priced coffee maker.

Re: Coffee pot?

Hmm, can't help there, we use instant coffee which comes in a little metal tin and goes into mugs with hot water. Normally made in the sink if we are bashing into a F4 so it doesn't matter when it spills.

Now tea, well making that is a whole ceremony as you would expect from the English Hot tea with a slice of lemon is refreshing in the afternoon.

Re: Coffee pot?

If you really enjoy coffee vs bitter, black-colored water, then I recommend a Thermos stainless steel coffee press. I think there is a similar Nissan brand one. It’s essentially an insulated French press.

We have to have our coffee too.

We have a metal tea pot to boil water, and use a Melita filter system but put the funnel on a metal coffee pot.

Also, we buy dark roasted, whole, beans, keep them in the freezer after opening the bag, and grind them daily.

This system is simple, fast, and delivers excellent coffee, six cups at a time and the metal pots are unbreakable.

Re: Coffee pot?

It depends on your conditions, calm, rolling, tossing. You don't want to spill boiling water on yourself. A kettle with tight-fitting lid and a pour spout, strong handle. Click image for larger version

ID:	245160 This one has a wide base for stability, and it is also a percolater. I like the tea kettle Wingsail pictured if it's calmer, but for me it's just a little harder to pour accurately in rough seas. You want to minimize pouring hot water. If calm, a drip filter is my preference and into a Thermos.

If it's very rough I'll use a french press commuter mug to minimize spillage. I have a Thermos brand insulated French Press that is also a sippy-cup (commuter mug), so I just measure the coffee grounds into the Thermos, pour in the hot water, wait about 3 or 4 minutes, press the sieve down slowly, open the top and pour in the Half & Half, reseal and drink. Stays hot and little risk of scalding. Only one pour of the hot water.

And I'll share some empirical research with you. If you like dairy Half & Half, get the Walmart brand Half & Half that is ultra-pasteurized. I've stored it unopened for up to 3 months unrefrigerated (room temperature) and it remained perfect. And I've used it unrefrigerated for up to 4 days after opening, but if you've got the room put it in your refrigerator.

Yes, pouring hot water in a rough seaway is dangerous. My job is making coffee, every day. I think about that every time. Fortunately our boat's motion is pretty gentle even going to weather in bad stuff, I've never spilled the boiling water. But occasionally I knock over the whole filter & pot thing and what a mess (yesterday I did that at the dock) six cups and all the grounds all over the stove top.

About the thermos units: My friend (Judy's best friend) was pouring boiling water into an open thermos jug, (like the one pictured above) and a fishing boat drove by leaving a big wake. The jug tipped over and poured the boiling water right into her sea boot (they were in Alaska). This resulted in the most horrific burns and she had to be flown to a hospital and the recovery was long and painful. I would be very careful about filling any tall narrow container with hot water on a boat.

Re: Coffee pot?

Wingsail shares a very important point.

I always, even at dock when calm, secure items.

Typically I would only use the french press sippy-cup when conditions are rough, and mine fits tightly into the the grill of the galley stove, wedging it tightly in all directions except upside down. If it wasn't able to fit securely there I'd find another way, perhaps wedged into the sink against a sack of vegetables or something else that would ensure stability.

Re: Coffee pot?

Another happy insulated stainless steel French press user here. Simple, easy to use, cleans up nicely without the need for filters. Makes a decent amount at one time (which is important on our boat ).

Re: Coffee pot?

If we are in rough conditions I use a french press. I also have a mug that has a press built in(very convenient for night watch)
If we are at anchor I much prefer espresso. I use an electric Burr grinder and a Flair manual press. It's very easy and makes a great shotClick image for larger version

Re: Coffee pot?

We use the filter/drip cone mentioned by Peg. We drip it into a vacuum bottle for lasting hot coffee. We can wedge everything onto the sink if we have to.

Coffee in the morning is at the top of the food pyramid.

Re: Coffee pot?

Hi! The sea, a sailboat and fragrant freshly brewed coffee... This is just a dream! I also can't imagine my life without this wonderful drink, so I understand you perfectly. I tried different coffee pots and coffee accessories. Many of them are not of good quality. Recently I found a very cool website where you can learn something new about the world of coffee and order coffee pots, coffee beans and everything you need to drink coffee was really nice…..

Anything called caramel vanilla cream ( artificially flavoured ) coffee can’t be right.

Get a decent expresso pot and some arabica coffee

It’s not hard
