I bought a stove top espresso maker like that years ago from a $ dtore for the Boler! Works pretty darn good for a $5 machine...

Yes, that is one of them. True about the name 'Cafe Americano' too. It was their way of saying "make a milder cup. These Americans can't handle ours." Me, I just think a dark rich cup of full flavored coffee is one of life's greatest pleasures.

When my Mom watches me make coffee, she usually has an astonished look on her face and follows it with "why do you use so much?"

Bialetti is the classic Italian coffeemaker brand. I have a cheap unit of this type. I was in a restaurant recently which sells some Italian groceries and related items, and saw that they had an "American style" coffee maker from Bialetti. This seemed like a bizarre concept, so I had a look: it's a percolator!
Bialetti Amerikana
Not for me.

Not for me either Brian. At home we use a Newco OCS-12. It definitely won't be used for camping however, since it's pretty tall, and uses 1400 Watts of power. It has a very thick 'server type' 3 prong plug coming out of it and it is quite loud while brewing. There is nothing wrong with the Drip Method, provided the coffee maker has enough power to brew at adequate temperatures and water flow - and this one does. For camping we are going to follow Jim's and other advice and use the AeroPress.

You are forgiven....this time. Just don't let it happen again, m'kay?

Yeah, too many people try to squeeze everything outta their coffee, and the resultant is almost always a bitter cup. No different over steeping most teas too.

Instructions for the Melita filter ( which I don't have at hand ) said to bring water to boil, then let it cool down for a couple minutes before pouring over grounds.

That makes sense. Optimal brewing temperature for the pour over method is about 90-93 C / 195-200 F, and since water boils at 100 C / 212 F (at least in the Vancouver area - at or near Sea Level), it should cool down a bit before brewing.

Unless you are in Leadville, CO at 10,000'. Then it is tough to get water over 190°F!

amazon.ca has the aeropress on for $31, which as far as I know, has been its lowest for the past year. Certainly recently with the Loonie being crippled.

Lightning deal, limited time and quantity.
