percolator pot works best and even love the coffee taste. Had to search high and low for one with 10 cup cap and we love it. GBA!!SVJ

Thanks for all the replies!  Yup - have the french press - seen some good reviews about "moka pot" espresso/coffee makers too.   So we'll plan on our Keurig and fancy flavored coffee when we have good shore power/generator and use some other alternatives when not 🙂  Appreciate the ideas and confirmation before I wasted money on an inverter since I don't think I'll need one for anything else... we're only weekenders for now, so I look forward to living without a TV for a couple days 🙂  I already have a 400W inverter that would likely work for smaller needs anyway.  Now just need the snow to melt!  counting down the days...

Did you mention coffee. I think I'll have some. Had the pot on the fire but it's real windy out here this morning.  15520693841176006306269811715499.jpg  no coffee shops nearby...

You can totally brew Keurig coffee off of the right inverter... we did. I restored a classic ham style 1969 Coachman Middy and added a power converter to charge the batteries and a 1200 watt pure sine wave power inverter. I also added a 100 watt solar panel to the roof of the camp trailer, so the batteries were constantly charging. The REAL trick though was that we bought a special 700 watt Keurig online.. [_AC_SL1002_]It is a single cup brewer made for hotels and runs on lower wattage than your typical Keurig. For some reason, I cannot put a link on here, but you can find it on Amazon (Item model # B130) as:

Keurig K-Cup In Room Brewing System, 11.1 x 10-Inches 

I was able to make 7-8 cups of hot water/coffee in a row with that setup so I am sure you could make a few without even having solar. It's ok to be lazy when you're camping! I usually am up before anyone else and want my coffee quickly without waking everyone else up. Sometimes I don't mind waiting outside by a campfire for my percolator but other times I need coffee NOW! Only downside is that it is a single cup and you have to make sure that the water is at least room temperature... if it is too cold it will not heat. I keep separate jugs of water and don't use the freshwater tank for drinking, so the water I use is always room temp anyway... not a problem.
