I don't have an inverter or propane. Has anyone tried 12 volt appliances like these?

A Sea Swing stove with a kerosene Primus style burner will operate in most conditions.

It does take a while to light , but the 10,000BTU output soon catches up with regular stoves.

The expresso style method is great as HEAT is the only requirement , lots of heat = quick coffee.

I find only the SS style expresso units are suitable for boats , as if sea water is used to rinse a recycled aluminum unit , it soon discolors to oblivion.

good stainless or glass is the best from a health standpoint and stainless is the least breakable. I've had green stuff keep comming out of a cheap chineese made coffee machine so now i am reluctant to use stainless and most often do the french press thing. I keep an extra pyrex bottle in case i break the one I'm using.

coffee has acids in it

Dockside, Mr.Coffee is the source of java.

On the hook or underway, its either French press or a percolator (old school).

Our single burner butane stove (I expect they are all the same) also takes a circular grill tray on top (costs about same as stove); use it to cook ashore or wherever you fancy.Never used it for coffee,we have an espresso machine.

Anyway, I became spoiled with my Greca and Santo Domingo brand coffee, and I've never had a better store-bought cup.
this is what i use.. makes a very tasty strong almost espresso like coffee.
and yes, i call it the $7000 cup of coffee as i proudly run the generator to power our electric stove.
i then pour it in a thermo for cup number two.
