Until this past Xmas I was on the Fence regarding Coffee Makers !

I was and still am amazed at How Pricey those Tassimo and Keurig Style Units are and also How Expensive the Little Packs of Coffee,Tea Etc are!

That said We received one as a Christmas Gift and absolutely Love It!

The unit is a Cuisinart /Keurig Style and came with a "My K Cup" as well as an assortment of Preloaded Brews.

My DW prefers to drink DeCaf and I Love a Coffee that I can only get in Mexico. So We picked up a Second "My K Cup" at a W-Mart coming down to Our winter Getaway in Warm and Sunny Mexico.

We are able to enjoy Our Own Special Brew a Cup at a Time whenever We want. It is always fresh and Always just the right Temperature!

The Only Complaint is the Reusable Filters in the "My K Cups are a bit of a Pain to Rinse and Clean.

Does anyone know if a Disposable Paper Filter is available?

The wife and I don't care for coffee. We used to live in Seattle. For 50 years we kept our secret safe. Then one day someone found out, and we were kicked out of Seattle, and now live outside Spokane on the other side of the state.

Man! You coffee drinkers are serious!

This is what we use, worked so well we bought another set....
Coffee cups
This way you can make four coffees before washing up, nobody has to wait.

I like my coffee hot so I run a cup of only water trough it first to warm up everything especially the cup. Second go through gives a piping hot coffee.

And they are good for a hot water source, if the tank goes out-hot water tank). Happy-camping

Since we camp alot of the power grid i had to come with a great way to make our fresh ground bean coffee and not have to use alot of battery resources to do it.

Although the most "GREEN" way was to grind up the coffee beans using a 120VAC Mr Coffee grinder running from the Inverter and then use the COLEMAN PERCULATOR on the propane gas burner.

Then I tried out the Cuisinart DGB600BC Grind and Brew model which makes up the coffee in the thermos Carafe. Since we use the 2KW Generator every morning at Breakfast to re-charge the battery banks this is a great time to also make the fresh coffee for the day. This Coffee Maker only runs from the Generator only 5-8MINUTES and then shuts completely down after pouring up the fresh made coffee into the carafe. It definitely stays hot all day until we make up more coffee again at the 4:30PM Generator run time.

I may have to look into just making one cup at a time using those plastic K-cups shown above and see if my camping off the power grid could support this...

Y'all must have way more disposable income than I do. Those Kcups end up at somewhere between 50 and 75 cents a cup for your coffee. Multiply that by 4-6 cups a day and at the end of the month you have spend an awful lot for coffee. A good quality coffee maker and a pound of decent coffee ends up at far less cost, I just do not see any reason behind it. Other than to separate you from your hard earned money.

When camping off of the grid I use the Melitta which I put a small coffee filter and my favorite coffee in and pour boiling water thru and get a wonderful cup of coffee.
