Stove top percolators have fallen out of favor since electric versions of coffee makers were introduced. Yet, a stove top percolator has the advantage of being always available for use and has no electrical parts that can fail leaving you without that much needed morning cup of coffee. Using a stove top percolator is simple and easy and because it contains no electrical parts is simple to clean after the coffee is gone. Does this Spark an idea?

OK, I just cannot get the hang of making good coffee when I camp. And I NEED coffee.
How do you make your coffee? Tell me what I'm doing wrong.
I use my Coleman 2 burner stove, and a regular blue metal coffee pot with the filter basket inside. Fill it with water, put in the appropriate amount of coffee in the basket, and turn on the stove. From there I don't know what to do next!!!
Do I wait till it boils and turn it down? Do I just boil it till it's done? How long is that? How can I stop the coffee from bubbling over the filter and getting into the water to make it crunchy? I don't mind the crunch actually, but it drives my husband crazy!
