Coleman Camping Coffeemaker

41B84OFnGiL

  • Perfect for family camping weekends
  • Designed for use with 2 or 3 burner camp stoves
  • Can be used to brew up to 10 cups of drip coffee

Enjoy the campsite sunrise the right way—with a cup of fresh coffee from the Coleman Camping Coffeemaker. The steel base fits over most camp stove burners. Just pour enough water for up to 10 cups of coffee into the easy-fill reservoir. Once it starts to boil, the water will move through the filter and brew itself into the glass decanter. For campers who just can’t wait for the entire pot to brew before pouring that first cup, the Pause ‘N Serve feature lets you do just that without the mess.There’s nothing like a hot cup of coffee on a sleepy outdoor morning, but camping French presses and drip filters can be messy and time consuming, especially if you’re camping with a group.

The Coleman camping coffeemaker sits atop a Coleman 2- or 3-burner stove.

Enter the Coleman camping coffeemaker, which makes up to ten 6-ounce cups of coffee without requiring an electrical outlet. Instead, the Coleman coffeemaker sits atop a Coleman two- or three-burner camping stove, where it draws all the heat it needs to brew a delicious pot. The unit includes all the standard coffeemaker features, including a swing-out filter basket, a solid steel base, and an easy-pour decanter. The coffeemaker even offers a pause-and-serve feature, so you can interrupt the brew to pour a cup–a must for sleepy-eyed campers. The Coleman camping coffeemaker brews a full pot in roughly 10 minutes, and can be used for tea or hot chocolate as well.

About Coleman
More than 100 years ago, a young man with an entrepreneurial spirit and a better idea began manufacturing lanterns in Wichita, Kansas. His name was W.C. Coleman, and the company he founded would change life in America. A man plagued with such poor vision he sometimes had to ask classmates to read aloud to him, Coleman saw a brilliant light in 1900 in a drugstore window that stopped him in his tracks. He inquired about the light inside and discovered he was able to read even the small print on a medicine bottle by the illumination. The lamps had mantles, not wicks, and were fueled by gasoline under pressure instead of coal oil. Soon afterward, Coleman started a lighting service that offered a “no light, no pay” clause–a big step forward for merchants who were burned by inferior products that rarely worked–and drew substantial interest from businesses that wanted to keep their lights on after dark.

In the ensuing years, Coleman expanded its product line well beyond lanterns. The company’s current catalog is thick with products that make spending time outdoors a pleasure. There are coolers that keep food and drinks cold for days on end, comfortable airbeds that won’t deflate during the night, a complete line of LED lights that last for years, powerful portable grills that cook with an authentic open-grill flame, and much, much more. Coleman has truly fashioned much of our outdoor camping experience, and expects to do so for generations to come. END

    For those who’re unfamiliar with the terminology, “dry camping” is done with an RV utilizing ONLY the resources within the vehicle; without external connections, such as water, electric or sewer.

    After reading the heartfelt but negative reviews on Amazon about this coffee maker, I was hesitant to buy it. Fortunately my experience using this coffee maker has been positive. My wife is an early-riser and wants her coffee right away. Usually by 6 a.m. we have the coffee maker brewing in our motorhome. As long as we’re at a campsite where there is an electric hook-up our Mr. Coffee, which cost less than half as much as I paid for this one, performs admirably. However, at many of our national parks, national seashores and at many big RV rallies, there are no electric hook-ups or the hook-ups are outrageously expensive. Not only does it seem to be a waste to run our 5.5KW motorhome generator to brew coffee, many of the campgrounds prohibit running generators before 7 or 8 am. Brewing coffee, using an inverter, quickly drains our coach batteries.

    I thought, what the heck, I’ll buy this coffee maker and give it a try based upon the mostly positive reviews. Before I actually brewed coffee, I washed the pot and basket and gave this coffee maker a test run on our three-burner propane gas range using plain water. The front burner is the fastest, so that’s the burner I used. I centered this coffee maker over the burner and turned the burner to its highest setting. This coffee maker took fifteen minutes to pump all of the water out of the tank and into the carafe. If it had failed to perform, I was prepared to return it to Amazon for a refund.

    Since then, while dry camping, I’ve brewed more than a dozen delicious pots of coffee on my RV’s gas range. All have been as tasty as the brews that I make with our Mr. Coffee when we have electric power. Both coffee makers allow us to remove the carafe while it is brewing without spillage. Our twelve-cup Mr. Coffee takes about ten minutes to make ten cups of coffee. This coffee maker takes about fifteen minutes to brew ten cups of coffee, which is its rated capacity. Instructions with this Coleman coffee maker say to immediately turn off the heat when the brewing is complete, which is what I do. This coffee maker won’t keep a carafe of coffee warm for a long time, but we usually drink what we brew right away.

    At this point I have no complaints aside from the fact that this specialized coffee maker cost me more than twice as much as its electric equivalent. However, I have already saved much more than it’s premium price by avoiding electric hook-up charges at RV rallies. Even more important, my wife is happy to get her first cup of coffee right away without having to wait until “quiet time” is over, so we can start our generator. Whenever I’m at a campground with electric hook-ups, I’ll still use my Mr. Coffee because it doesn’t consume our expensive propane and is slightly faster. But for all other situations, this coffee maker makes a tasty brew without requiring electric power and it uses the same paper filters. I have uploaded a photo that shows this coffee maker in action; brewing on our propane gas range. Amazon moved the photo to an obscure location on the page, but it’s still there.

    Good coffee, questionable quality?, July 13, 2016

    The coffee maker itself feels surprisingly cheap. I was a little worried about the fact that it is predominately made of cheap feeling plastic. Shouldn’t be a surprise as when you get your box you will notice MADE IN CHINA, Glass made in Germany in bold letters. I purchased this after reading all review types, positive, neutral and negative. I’m not willing to call anyone out like some reviewers have and state things like “They don’t know what they are talking about”, “They OBVIOUSLY are doing something wrong”, etc.

    IMPORTANT: The first pot of coffee I brewed wasn’t a pot of coffee at all. It was just plain water to make sure the device functioned and to help “clean/cycle” the unit of any possible contamination. Some people have claimed that the device overflows, backs up and pours out all over the place. Mine did too at first and here’s why:

    You MUST ensure that the top portion/basket is swung closed PRIOR to inserting the coffee pot. This is due to the design of the pause and serve lever. I tinkered around a bit with mine because I thought that it wasn’t closed all of the way because there is a gap on the left side of the plastic facing you when brewing. If you play with the swing out basket AFTER you place the glass pot the device will back up and leak!

    Not sure if its everyone’s coffee maker or just a defect in mine but mine does in fact make it look like the filter basket is NOT closing all of the way. Poor design, if so. If your coffee maker does start leaking my best advice is to turn off the fire and leave it be. Don’t try to stop it or you WILL burn yourself.

    Brewing Time: I was a little taken aback that my coffee wasn’t as instant as I would have liked to hope for. However, I think many people living in todays age of drive through’s and K-Cup single serves would in fact be surprised at how long it takes to brew. Not sure I’d go ahead and be braisen enough to claim that it takes as long as a household coffee brewer would or not, as its been a LONG time since I too have used home brewers. Some brew faster than others. Especially the expensive models like Keurig, BUNN, anything that has a heating element for pre-heated water.

    The product however does NOT lose a star due to the brewing time. After all, coffee after while when camping IS better than no coffee at all, or percolators that give you a cup full of grounds that take equally as long.

    A lot of people have claimed that the usage of aluminum for a heating element was a poor decision. While I have not had a problem in this area, I’d have to agree. I have pretty much learned to HATE anything made of aluminum as the melting point is much lower than solid steel and heavier metals. Ever throw a soda can in a camp fire? Watch it melt sooner than later. Ever use one of those pie irons that arent actually made of iron, I did, and it melted the first night! The instructions DO however specify to use nothing more than 15,000 BTU’s, so, with that being said; I have seen at least one reviewer state theirs melted with a 20,000 BTU unit, which definitely does denote USER ERROR.

    Unfortunately, to many, fire is fire and when you advertise that it’s for a camp stove, a lot of individuals won’t mind to pay attention to things like BTU’s, etc.

    Overall: I highly appreciated the fact that I was able to have quality coffee at my disposal. The unit loses a star for its overall build quality as I question how long this will truly last. I’ve been really careful in between brewing pots to let the unit cool for a while, etc. I’m afraid just one simple mistake will leave me without my morning and evening cup of coffee, and hunting for a replacement. Coleman, if you’re listening, people associate your name, or at least once did with QUALITY and RELIABILITY. I’m sure i’m not the only one willing to pay a few extra bucks to an extra $20.00 for heavier metal and some quality materials, overall.

    I will update after my next time using it to update how well it’s held up. I may even poke around and see if I can remove the pause and serve lever somehow without breaking the unit, as I have no use for it.
