So you need gas or electricity to boil the water! I use a French press or an Italian moka pot.


Unfortunately I dont' think there is anything on the market that can make hot water without a heat source! Some people take hot water in a thermos for the truly off grid experience... though I would think the coffee would not be very warm.

The french press is great and I will use that when I am making larger pots. I have a moka pot too in the van, but somehow have never really got on with it.

Hi Islam,
You pour boiling water into a little cup and screw the unit together. - This is where the tricky bit is, trying to do that and not get scalded.🙂
A tea towel helps.

Steve, your instructions reminded me of this:-

Erm

the Conqueco portable coffee machine (see my earlier post) will heat water from cold using its integral battery or you can use pre heated water which will obviously use less battery power before needing to recharge.

I stand corrected, no other heat source needed (as long as you have somewhere to recharge the battery)! This looks like a great bit of kit, I am tempted... though my other half would kill me if I get yet another coffee gadget !!!

It seems that you need electricity either to heat water or to charge up your gadget....... For "emergencies" I got a mocha pot and this. https://www.amazon.fr/R%C3%A9chaud-campi...ps%2C103&sr=8-9 It uses little cubes of fuel.

OK time to fess up. We do own a coffee pot but are not huge coffee drinkers. We own one of these

It says 10 cups but will only do a mug and a half. Mines the half. Pop it on the induction hob and wait for a couple of minutes.

One of our sons, who is a coffaholic recommends Lavazza Rossa.

Roger, I always thought you were a man of taste. The Lavazza Rossa is my usual coffee. When I can pick upon offer the Black packet Espresso Italiano or Gold packet Qualita Oro I but these in bulk and alternate between the three. They are well worth a try.

At home (and at work) we drink only Lavazza pod coffee (the red ones mostly) - however we have gone down the Tassimo route for caravanning, because we haven't been able to buy Lavazza pods in France. As that's our main holiday destination we have had to go with the alternative option. Although the L'Or coffee that tassimo mostly sell is utter rubbish. We buy Costa espresso pods in bulk from Ebay without the UHT milk pods they sell them with in supermarkets (I'm lactose intolerant).

Before anyone mentions Nespresso - I also refuse to buy anything Nestlé owned because of their terrible policy towards selling into poor countries, where they try very hard to persuade poor people that their formula baby milk is much better than breast milk. They are not a nice company - HQ in Switzerland and a multi-national structure means they are almost untouchable. Rant over....

We love our stove top / mocha pot and mainly use the induction hob which is fast and allows us to heat the milk on the gas hob. Peruvian or Costa Rican coffee.
