The Nice Stainless Steel Coffee Press That Cousin Jodi Bought For the Motorhome But Which Is Now Used On TD

23 August 2008 | Hilton Head
I have a Capresso, which is a combination grinder and coffee maker, but it is bulky, uses too much coffee, is too great of a draw on the batteries, and simply doesn't make as good coffee as french press - so the Capresso is stored in the rear cabin and the press is what I use to make coffee every morning. Frankly I'm shocked at the crappy coffee some cruisers drink. I try and buy the best. Presently I'm drinking Starbucks espresso roast. I've got a bag of verona when my current supply runs out. It's a nice routine to heat the water on the stove and smell the coffee brewing when I pour the piping hot water over the grounds in the press. Finding a place to discard the wet grinds is a problem, but I always find a way to get rid of them. I've been able to keep a steady supply of 1/2 and 1/2 going while cruising and I try and get good honey as a sweetener. The honey I have now is incredible - dark, complex wildflower taste. Probably more information about coffee on board than was necessary. I don't know if I mentioned it in an earlier post but my German/Canadian friend took me to refill my propane tank. It cost $5 and was probably 2/3 empty when I refilled it. It should last around 3 months of regular use before it needs refilling again.
