Our mission? Finding an easy, tasty, practical solution to making coffee in an RV once we hit the road. Yes, of course, our RV will have electricity. But we do plan to be off grid a lot. And, I don’t want to run down our batteries just running an electric coffee maker.
I immediately thought French Press. Easy peasy, right? Just put in the grounds, heat the water, wait four minutes, drink coffee. Yes, it’s that easy, but there are a couple of drawbacks that take French Press out of the number one spot.
- Can only make 2 mugs of coffee at a time
- Doesn’t stay hot longer than about 15-20 minutes
- Uses a lot of coffee grounds
So, we’ll keep using it for now, but this will not be our go to once we’re on the road.
We’re also considering cold brew, which we’ve used in the past and enjoyed. We’re going to try pour over, too.
What’s your favorite way to brew coffee?
