No day is complete or off to a good start unless I have my morning cup of coffee. This includes days while camping.
Do It Yourself RV has an article on 7 ways to making coffee while camping. Most are geared for those times while dry camping and there's no power to operate an electric drip coffeemaker. If in an RV with a generator, that problem is solved. But there are times when generators aren't permitted in some national and state park campgrounds as you'd wake the neighbors. What to do then?
Naturally, since I have a propane stove, I bought a Stanley percolator for brewing coffee without the need for a generator. This is one of the seven ways (number 2 on the list) to make coffee while camping.
They begin their article with:
