First Place: Old School Percolator

Farberware Classic Yosemite 8 Cup Percolator

By far the most popular method of making coffee in a truck camper is with an old school percolator.  Many readers are using vintage percolators from the 1950s and 1960s while others are using modern percolators like the Faberware Classic Stainless Steel Yosemite 8-Cup.

Second Place: Mr. Coffee Maker

Mr Coffee 12 Cup Maker

The next most favorite way to make coffee in a truck camper is with a classic Mr. Coffee maker.  Using 110-volt shore power, off-grid inverted power, or a generator, it seems not much can beat a traditional drip coffee maker for many folks.

Third Place: Aerobie AeroPress

Aeropress French Press Like Coffee Maker

Now for the real standout surprise; the Aerobie AeroPress.  Eighteen readers responded that the AeroPress is their preferred portable coffee maker on the road.

With benefits like 30 second brewing, espresso or Americano-style coffee, unbreakable construction, and French Press quality coffee without the mess, it’s no wonder that the AeroPress is a hit.  The AeroPress is now on our must-try list.

Readers gave some great feedback about the coffee makers they use when they’re on the road.
