Coffee Emergency!

How far would you go for a cup of hot coffee?  This weekend, when my electricity was out, the thing that bothered me most was the inability to use my coffee maker to brew a pot of the elixir of life.  Seriously, I live for my early morning java. 

As for me, I drove nearly 60 miles for my cuppa joe yesterday at the crack of dawn.  Might sound kind of extreme, but I’m not lukewarm when it comes to coffee.  Freshly brewed coffee is essential to starting my day off right. 

I wasn’t prepared for a coffee emergency the past couple of days, but I will be next time.  As an avid camper, I always have canisters of propane on hand.  If I had already stocked the Coleman Propane Coffee Maker in the pantry, I would have been all set.  In 15 minutes I would have been savoring a latte brewski.  It’s just not right to weather a storm without one.

Check out this award-winning review of the Coleman Coffee Maker by kristalulabelle84.  I’m not sure how I have survived without this no-more-coffee-emergencies appliance.  Though I appreciate a rustic, woodsy lifestyle, there are limits to roughing it.  Why deprive yourself of the one little luxury that can make or break your next adventure (whether on the road or at home)?

  1. Diana, I know you have surely been roughing it when you are without coffee in the morning! Yes, I'd drive those miles for java too! The Coleman coffee maker article is fantastic and what a fabulous product for campers--and you!

  2. Few things affect me as much as not having my morning cup of coffee. I must admit, I am rather surprised that you didn't already have several backup plans. You are, by far, the most prepared for roughing it of anyone I know. You would have a rampaging bear on your hands if I had been there :) I need at least 2 Coleman coffee makers. One for backup and one for backup to the backup!

    1. I did have a couple of options, Mouse, but they weren't as good as fresh-brewed coffee.

  3. A day without coffee is like... a day without coffee. I know you'll never be without your coffee again! Thanks for alerting us to the need for this backup for life!

    1. I figure a backup propane coffee maker is far cheaper than buying a portable IV system. :-)

  5. A morning without coffee? Never gonna happen. Well, I hope it will never happen.

  6. On my way to read the review. I LOVE my ice coffee but I don't make it when we go camping. However, when we go camping, the Mister may have left every single other thing at home but he always brings some way to make his hot coffee.
