I've recently begun using a Rapid Brew 3-cup stovetop percolator, on top of your standard-grade Coleman two-burner propane stove. Since I camp solo, it's perfect for making one decent-sized cup at a time. Six and a half minutes perc time. I had one of those huge Coleman coffeemakers, and it worked quite well, but was too large (in size & cup capacity). I have no qualms about percs, regardless of they rest of the world views them...

My brother, otoh, still makes cowboy coffee.

For my solo-trips, I use a moka pot that I set on top of a small wood-burning camp stove that I made out of an old soup can, or I use my alcohol stove that I made out of a couple soda cans. They both get the job down quickly and efficiently and I prefer moka coffee over many other options.

This is what my daughter has been using the past three weeks in Alaska. With morning temperatures in the upper 30's, she's able to brew a decent, warm cup while keeping the weight way down. Take care!

I've been using an Aeropress for car camping but it seems to be sensitive to elevation. I often brew up at about 8500 feet and lately I've been getting good results by pouring vigorously boiling water (about 91C) straight from the kettle into the Aeropress. When I have breakfast at 10,000 feet instead the coffee is a little sour. However, I have made good coffee at that altitude by boiling the grounds in a saucepan and then filtering it. That's a lot of messy work though. Maybe a percolator would be the ticket!

What kind of camping are you people doing ? I am too old to put up with any of that sh1t now but when I did it was cowboy coffee.
Doing it any other way take too much effort. Then again, I used to try boiling water but by the time the water was boiled and you fished the bugs out, you had no water left. So cowboy coffee with bugs and all. Call it the original protein drink.
