Just to throw a wrinkle into the conversation, I'm a heavy sleeper when it comes to noise. A generator's not likely to wake me up, but the odor of coffee wafting from the next campsite...bleh!! To me, it's the equivalent of an overflowing toilet. Yes, I know; that's strange.

Anyway, the OP's point is really about how some of us forget we're camping, sometimes at the expense of others. My wife likes to run the microwave first thing in the morning, but with generator-provided AC, it has to wait for mid-morning. Either that, or she needs to remember how to do what she wants without the microwave.

French press for us. When rving, we heat up water on stove,(helps to heat up TC). 4 cupper when in the TC, 2 cupper when backpacking. We do grind the coffee with electricity but it is through the inverter.

I have a percolator and know how to use it.

I threw out the basket and use the pot to boil water. Then I make delicious coffee using a Melitta cone. Much easier to make, much better coffee, much easier clean up.

If they need their generator to fix breakfast, I don't care.
If they like to listen to the morning news, I don't care.
If they want to start a campfire to cook breakfast, I don't care.
If they use an electric coffeemaker, or a french press, or make cowboy coffee, I don't care.
I don't go camping to force my likes or dislikes on others. They live their lives, I live mine.
I expect the same courtesy from them.

Hi All.

Hey, don't worry, I'm with you also. I'm an early riser, and I don't want to bother the DW or the Dogs. We have been RV'ers for a little over 45+ years now, and I still make coffee on the stove top, or go out in the early AM, and make my coffee on the Camp Stove.

I never buy ready made coffee from any where. We almost never eat out either. I use to be a Cheif, and a Full Service Baker. My food is so much better than what you can buy out. And I do all of the Cooking on the road and at home also.

Not into Speciality Coffee's at all. Thanks, but I will continue to keep doing what I have been doing. Works for us. Good Luck. Happy Travels. Dan & Jill

Actually, percolated coffee tastes better. Every time I'm camping, I ask myself the opposite of your question: "Why don't I do it this way at home?" =:-D

My dad loved drip coffee even before Mr. Coffee. He had an old 6 cup drip coffee pot. Three pieces - the pot, the coffee holder, and the water reservoir. You poured boiling water in the top and in about 3 minutes had coffee. From the time that I was big enough to pour a pot of boiling water, I made his coffee on the weekends.

He claimed the Mr. Coffee was not nearly as good.
