Default Propane powered coffee maker?

So I have hit that point in life where several check engine lights are coming on. That said I am now drinking water, unsweetened almond milk and coffee. With my insomnia, I drink decaf and thats a tough find on the road when traveling. I am looking for ways to make coffee on the road. Sometimes it would be nice to stretch/walk some while coffee is brewing. I would like to make 10-12 cups when doing this. I have tried one of the 12v coffee makers sold in truck stops and not had much success with that.What are my options

Makita makes an 18V battery powered one. But I don’t think you can make 10-12 cups at a time with it.

This is the way. We have a french press that takes individual Keurig k-cups so we can make a cup at a time. Been doing this for the last several years at my hunting camp

It is called Cafejo My French-Press, but I'm not sure they're making them anymore. If you do an Amazon search for "K Cup French Press" you'll see several out there for sale

French press or plastic pour over are two items that can make coffee any way you can get hot water. Pretty versatile.

Could be boiled in a jet boil, could be gotten from the hot water spigot at a gas station, boiled on a camp stove, coals from fire, etc.

if you are going to be walking around and truck is parked while it makes, why not a regular home coffee maker with an inverter run off your battery. not sure what wattage it draws but i have run old school halogen lights off my truck battery with the truck running.

It draws too much for the inverter on my Dodge, done tried it. I thought about one of the tailgator generators that HF sells but it looks like it does not have enough to power a coffee maker either

I did not think about using hot water at the fuel stops, that would work for pour over

They’ll usually give it to ya for free too. When the kids were babies we’d stop and get a cup of hot water to warm the baby bottle in.

I use the MSR windburner with a french press or pour over. Came in handy during the ice storm.

You can buy pots or bigger containers if you want/need more water
