Where Em and I part ways is I'll sacrifice a $10-15 Bodum. Cheap presses work great for me. Its the size of the grounds (coarse & even).

ConnieH wrote:I'll look for Cafe Bustelo, thanks...the brand that's readily available here is Medaglia D'Oro. Some of my friends hate it, but I like strong coffee and it doesn't have as much of that "instant" flavor as Folgers or Nescafe (or Starbucks!). It's my camping staple - I have a french press, but hate dealing with the grounds unless I'm somewhere with running water or just a one-nighter. I'm right there with Emily - no way do I want to deal with french press grounds on the playa

We had a box of the Folger coffee pod teabags gifted one year, and used the whole box (as we were desperatily close to runnin' out of java) to make a big 1 gallon pot of brew...damn...the coffee tasted like a wet newspaper with all the mini-filter bags :oops: But by making your own mini packets (i.e.- fresher unbleached brown paper filters & fresher ground coffee of choice) might just be a "by-the-cup" miracle 8)
