Steve - That is actually a safe filled with gold doubloons that I find off a shipwreck in SF Delta's warm fresh waters during my free dives. I fashioned it to look like a dishwasher... so no one bothers to too hard to go inside when it won't easily open.

In reality: I'm the dishwasher, it's a refridge... but I can dream!

My "sorta" minimalist galley kit:

$19 Mr Coffee- can run off the 1kW inverter, but need to turn fridge off while brewing.
$40 toaster oven- can cook a brick of Stouffer's lasagna. Inverter friendly.
Rice cooker- inverter friendly
Electric portable hot plate
Propane single burner portable- when elec is not hot enough
Radiant gas barbeque- stays in engine room unless grilling
Bar fridge- inverter friendly

All this stuff from Target, etc. None is marine specific. All can be used with out waking up Gennie.

All this coffee talk is driving me crazy as I'm trying to quit the bean.
I don't think we ever did have coffee on the boat. We just made a lot of tea. Good thing we didn't drink that much coffee.

So switching to tea was a minimalist act I guess.

My boat will NOT begin a cruise without functioning coffee making equipment. No way.

I like redundancy! I carry a cheap imitation Mr. Coffee maker for use on the inverter only and a small Keurig for use on shore power or generator. At 1500W, the Keurig is too big for my little 1KW inverter.

Like many of you guys, no coffee, no go! Dare I say it's even more important than the IPA. A man's gotta know his limitations.

If it floats.
If it can make coffee.

Have we arrived at the minimalist requirements?

I have worked with a lot of cajuns over the years. Came to love their food but hate that "community coffee" stuff. I don't get it...

Shall I send you some mon cher? It's different from Yankee coffee because there is actually coffee in it, 5 scoops in a pot. Chew slowly and enjoy

The story goes (I'm told)- that New Orleans, being the first major port city on the Mississippi River was able to buy spices, coffee, etc. much cheaper than other ports upriver. Consequently, our spicy food (and coffee) is a result of not having to carefully measure portions due to cost😎❗️

Why do you think they made the filter basket as big as they did? So you could fill it with coffee 1/4 the way up???? Is a beer can 1/4 full?? Do you fill your gas tank 1/4 full? Eat 1/4 of a cheeseburger?? Put some coffee in the filter!!!

Hi AusCan. I remember when I lived in Christchurch NZ I came across that stainless french press. Can't remember the brand, but it was selling for about a $100 or more.

Anyway, living on land now I have french presses, drip percolators and a Nespresso (home and office) and have to admit that a french press is the best invention by mankind
