    You could probably use a french press with even cold water if you had one .

    I’ve been using this Mellita coffee maker for years on and off. I got a reusable gold filter so don’t need to keep buying paper. It’s been my experience that you need to use finely ground coffee for this method.

    I have been using a french press for years. It’s a simple easy way to make the best coffee you have ever had! Add fresh ground coffee and hot water let stand for a couple of minutes then press the screen down which pushes grounds to the bottom and voila the best tasting coffee.

      The first time I tried the french press , I drank 3 cups and was so hyper , I wanted to run around hammering nails the rest of the day ;)

    TR I agree with you cowboy coffee is the best. You can usually tell someone who really loves coffee by the way the make it. When I first married we used the boiling method to make coffee because there was no such thing as a Mr. Coffee. I like so many others now use a Mr. Coffee out of convenience. Not to long ago our coffee pot went out and until I could make a trip to town we boiled coffee in our old pot that has to be at least 50 years old. Sure tasted good to me……

    or cowboy coffee , just toss the coffee grounds into a pot and boil it , then a dab of cold water to selle the grounds . ……but this works best outside .

    I’ve had one of these for camping for years ~ still use it and still have friends go ‘oh wow, I need to get one of those’ ` beats ‘cowboy coffee’ w all the mess at the bottom of the cup or lugging around the percolator types. I just set up filters w measured coffee and boil some water … you put the filter in the device, place on top of cup, pour the hot water in til fills up your cup. Next cup repeat … :)

    • As I don’t drink coffee I never thought about this idea as a good camping or bug out bag item. Inexpensive and lightweight… can’t beat that!

  • My parents before me and now I have been using a version of these for many many years (50?). Super low tech, but great results. Just have to remember to keep a good supply of the filters also, or get a reusable one or three. The paper filters would be handy to have for many things in an emergency situation anyway, though.
