That substance that some of us can not live without. With all the post on social media about people finding contaminated water in their coffee machines you might hesitate in making your next cup.

As for me I found this option because solar panels and the need to conserve my electrical consumption. Coffee without power. the conundrum.

I first picked up one of those coffee makers in the camping section, one that percolates on the stove. I often found grounds in my cup, the taste wasn’t what I was looking for, so the search carried on.

I came across an interesting idea, a pour over coffee maker. Heat the water in a kettle, then pour the coffee over a filter that strains into the bottom.

I like the idea there is no where for germs or anything else to find a way to hide and take away from my morning experience. Also, who wants to mess with all those buttons before they had their coffee?

  • Water
  • Optional Cream & Sugar


Pro tips:

Pour a little hot water from the kettle into the grounds
before the water boils.
This will allow the grounds to expand, and the water to
slowly pass through the filter making a stronger coffee.
