This week, after the coffee maker quit, Mom bought two coffee makers. The second is the backup unit.

Electric, stove-top percolator, or press? She should also check out cold brewing.

Percolators and french presses could be a great alternative. They can be operated even without electric power.
I decided to go with a french press some time ago and I never looked back to drip coffee. The coffee is very nice - partly to exclusively using fresh grounds. I am contemplating on getting a titanium version of the french press.
Today I made all my coffee using only a cat can stove for heating the water. That was a nice excercise for the use of the alcohol stove.

Our camp stove percolator is essential.

I’ve been wanting something more compact to bring to the outdoor range and have settled on an inexpensive isopropane stove and Starbucks Via instant coffee. Also included is my favorite mint tea and some hot cocoa packets.

Another vote for french press. During power outages, I just use a canister stove to heat water, rather than the microwave. There are many alternative methods to heat water and the resulting product is great

Mom also has a percolator. Given that she has an automatic drip, a backup automatic drip, and a percolator, she has her coffee needs covered.

+ 1 for French press
I have two glass ones, and they are great, but one of them is a bit loose.
The glass cylinder is a bit bigger than the plunger.
Next time I buy one, I will open the box and put it together to check for the fit.

I'm picturing the scene from "The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly" where Tuco is assembling a pistol from assorted different guns. grin
