So how much do you have to spend to enjoy your coffee in the morning. Turns out to be about 3% of a two 8D system. When we dry camp we usually use the gas stove and those Starbuck packets for coffee. However, on this trip we're using our 1500...

I do not do coffee but Ruth loves a cup of Nespresso coffee first thing. We have 3 of the machines around so not a problem. She also uses the drip type if a larger volume is needed.

Haven't drunk coffee for several years, only tea, then I got a Nespresso espresso maker. Now again addicted to coffee. I find as I get older, I need that caffeine more and more. Still like tea but not as much now.

Pour over direct into Yeti tumbler or French press for plus 16 ounces. Use paper filter on pour over for easy clean up. Use free trade organic coffee.
