On the hook we boil a pot of water in a tea kettle on the propane stove, and use a french press. Pour the first two cups for my wife and I, and the rest goes in a good old fashioned plaid thermos which stays hot for hours. We usually grind a couple days of coffee at a time so we don't need to grind every single morning.

She brings out the Mr. Coffee when we're tied to a dock, though... (And then we go back to fresh ground every day.)

I think I am going to look into a propane coffee maker... That just seems like the best way for us... Well... short of just cranking the dang generator, but that's just TOO easy.

Our boat had an electric (AC) Mr. Coffee on it when we bought it. Took it off and tossed it. We boil water in a stainless steel teapot on the propane stove and use a French press to make coffee.

Greetings,
Yup, Mr. Coffee and then vacuum bottle. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the beverage consumed in great quantities during college/university. Beer isn't just for breakfast anymore...

What the heck,we`ve got a genset,so we feed our coffee addiction with a small electric Espresso machine onboard, like we have at home. Cost about $160. We love it,so do guests.We take beans to grind fresh onboard.
You can get stove top espresso machines,but nothing beats an electric one with 15 Bar pressure. It has a frothing steam nozzle for those who ruin good coffee with milk.
For the less organized, "coffee boats" with espresso machines and genset do good trade at some Sydney and Broken Bay/Hawkesbury River anchorages.BruceK

Old fashioned percolator. Once it starts to perk give it ten minutes, turn off the flame, let it sit for one minute, enjoy!

Finally! A completely civilized response to the matter at hand.

We use a large expresso pot (makes two USA cups of coffee , dont know what that is in expresso cups 8 ?)

The advantage is it operates as rapidly as the output of the heat source , and "calls" you when done.

With a Kero 10,000BTU Primus in our 90/90 its real quick.

Loads slower in our 23 ft Regal on alcohol,

Not bad with the 120v Princess in the Bus conversion or

the propane in our homes.

Hearing the ssss of the finished brew is easy , figuring who gets out of the sack is harder.

I've used this one: Coleman Camping Coffeemaker*-*Coleman*2000003603*-*Camping Accs*-*Campersland
for several years. It's a drip coffee maker and makes 10 cups, just like at home. We use a portable butane burner to heat it. Works great.

I just run the generator for my Mr. Coffee. My EU3000i can hardly be heard.
A friend grinds beans by hand and 'brews' the coffee overnight in a French press. 'Presses it the next morning and drinks it without ever applying heat.

Do you throw your coffee grounds overboard?

While living in the Dominican Republic, I learned that the value of the standard coffee pot (called "Greca") was a highly prized possession. When it came to selling everything I had and returning to the US, I wasn't surprised to have several people call me to ask for my Greca, which according to them, was the worlds best. Grecas are often crude and imperfect constructions, and when you find a good one that fits and seals properly, it makes all the difference in preparing ones coffee. Anyway, I became spoiled with my Greca and Santo Domingo brand coffee, and I've never had a better store-bought cup.

Nope, I never thought about it. I just put them in a plastic bag with the rest of the trash and garbage and dump it all on land.

You mean you have a choice? For some reason I never thought it could be anyone but me. Perhaps I need to rethink the issue.......Arctic Traveller

Butane stove and a french press in the summer. Might check out the greca though. Dickinson Bristol diesel stove and perk the rest of the year.

Mr Coffee maker. Since we are toasting bread and microwaving in the morning most times I fire up the generator. I think according to my LINK if I just use the inverter a full pot of coffee cost about 25ah, peanuts out of a 800ah bank.
