    Coffee addict - How to brew on board?

    OK, 23 years in the Marines have left me addicted to coffee. A large thermos is totally inadequate for my habit. Not to mention that my wife is just as bad, and we fish together allot! When we rode motorcycles we used to use the coffee bags that looked like tea bags and cooked over a tiny camp stove that sits atop the fuel cans.

    Is there a safe method to brew coffee in the boat? I have a healthy respect for fire on a boat.

    I love coffee... I've not thought about brewing aboard the boat - but some cold mornings it would be nice!

    Ok so I thought I was the only one doing this in my boat. I picked up a 300 watt inverter and mounted it in my boat with its own battery. Then I bought the small keurig and now I keep a gallon jug of water and some k-cups handy and I got coffee on the boat. I have actually sold cups while duck hunting. I gave this on both my boats an love it

    if you go through more than a gallon of coffee, you may want to consult a doctor.

    Thermos full of hot water and a bottle of cold brew concentrate. You can either buy the concentrate or make it yourself.
    Life and beer are very similar; Chill for best results!

    If I brewed on board I'd also need to invest in a toilet.

    Once on the water, I don't have time for coffee. Besides, I usually end up spilling it on the carpet.
