There have been times the coffee in my cup got cold and took a sip.

No cold coffee for me......and no junked up coffee (an excuse for coffee IMO) flavored w/vanilla or ??, with whipped cream on top or whatever.

Plain hot coffee, with nothing added, not cream not sugar cannot be beat IMO.

Hahaha! I'm laughing because I have been putting raw honey in my coffee and whipped cream on top for a long time. That's the way I like it.

Calories are not our enemies. Eating crap food is killing us. Raw honey and whipped cream are both reAl food, like butter is real food. I drink one mug of coffee a day. No big deal. But I also stay away from soda pop, excess alcohol, fake and processed "food" and other junk. I'm a healthy woman who isn't on any drug. Rare at my age.

Calories surely are SOME of the enemies, in my book, as are the other foods you mentioned. I can eat a chock-full-o-healthy-nuts at every meal. I can suck on a cup full of organic honey. Am I gonna gain weight? You bet. Gotta be far too diligent, for me, to buy/eat/cook ONLY organic. Everything in moderation.

Whipped cream from what source - hand whipped from organic milk?

Then again, we need to meet on a different forum...not this one.

Growing up on the farm. whipped cream was made from real cows cream we separated from cows milk ... that is from cows we milked by hand. There was no such thing as whipped cream in a pressurized can or anything like Kool whip, etc. that are darn poor substitutes for the real thing.

We made ice cream from real cows cream too!

IMO it would be a darn dull and boring world if we all like exactly the same things.

Once again, I only started this thread to say we like our Coleman stovetop coffeemaker. Period.

Here, Here... And I like my coffee hot, not warm, but smok'in hot...
Not that I throw it out when the cup starts to cool down, but I do not care for cold or ice-coffee and I do not add sugars and flavors that I would need to choke down cold/ice-coffee... No insults intended, but I agree with Eagle here...

OK folks - a few over-amped posts have been trimmed out of this thread about Coffee makers. Please remember that we each have unique opinions and there is an appropriate time and place for them. Please focus on the topic at hand.

Thanks for posting about the coleman maker - I've wondered how it is.

My own solution has been a folding silicon pour over with paper filters. After trying a stainless french press (horrible to clean) and a few others schemes, I've settled on this:




Collapsible Silicon Java Drip Coffee Maker | GSI Outdoors

Makes great coffee and clean up is a snap.

I like this little dripper...its design lets you steep your brew as long as you want. The liquid is not released until you set it on top of your mug (your coffee mug, not your face)...

I use an Aeropress AeroPress Coffee Maker -
It makes 1 cup at a time and is easy to clean.

Someone suggested cold brewed coffee -- I tried it yesterday. Delicious during hot weather!

See how wonderfully diverse we all are - some like it hot, some like it cold, and some (me) like it both ways! And the subject line should read COFFEE!

And let's toss in yet another flavorful way to enjoy the bean - flavored with a little Irish Whiskey and a dash of Bailey's Irish Cream. Why, I even have special cups for this blend of taste bud delight, meant to be enjoyed on a cold winter's eve. Dang, wish it got colder where I live.

For those who still prefer a percolator when camping but want to minimize cleanup , the "wrap around" coffee filters for percolators work great . Easy-peasy cleanup if you carefully remove...all the grounds are contained in the filter . Nothing smells or sounds as good as coffee perking in the morning out in the fresh air :O).

We used to make coffee the old old old way. Just put some water in a pot and add several spoons of coffee. Bring it to a boil for however long your prefer. Remove the pot from the stove and immediately pour about 1/4 cup of cold water in the pot sort of spreading it around as you do. Carefully pour the brew into cups, being careful not to disturb the grounds which have not settled to the bottom. Enjoy. It works.
