If you are staying at a campsite and it has electricity then your best options of coffee makers would be the camping coffee maker (one which works with electricity or the one which works with a Coleman stove) which is the best option of making filtered coffee in the larger amount. If you are on your own, why not investing in a French press, either one that needs hot water or a combined one that heats its own water too. As an extra, filtered coffee is absolutely lightweight and very easy to carry with you.

There are lots of specialized coffee stores offering quality brewed coffee all over the world, offering a great range of information on the best places coffee comes from as well as on all the quality grounding and brewing methods which are available on the market today for preparing really good coffee- even while traveling.
This time around I will differentiate and enlist the most popular small coffee makers, also introducing you to their basic working methods and tell you their pros and cons too.
Types and sorts of small coffee makers:
· The Classic Pour-over and Its Thousand Variations:
The pour-over or dripping coffee makers will always stay a big favorite in the eyes of many. First of all, they are classy, widely available and let’s be honest: cheap. All you need is a combo of the filter, water filler, and a mug and you are ready. With the drip method, you can measure the quantities pretty well and you can prepare a bigger amount of coffee, depending on the exact size of the coffee maker of course. Over the past years and with the coffee- craze of the recent years, the pour over has hundreds of variations, with lots of these aiming to minimize the size while others targeting the efficiency. I would still suggest the combo devices as they serve a small home very well, they are reliable and they are also really easy to clean.
· The French Press:
The French press is the hottest type of coffee makers today, according to lots of well-known expert baristas and other coffee enthusiasts, this method of pressing the coffee down with the built-in presser will really bring out the taste, the aroma and the strength of the coffee. There are several subtypes of the French press available on the market today and there are also combo-devices which are easy to carry and store even in a small flat or while traveling and they will do the job for you very finely. The only drawback of French press combos is the cleaning process which takes a longer time, because of the higher amount of tools used for preparing the freshly brewed coffee
· The Handpresso:
This small new device is something I’ve noticed appearing only recently, but its size, method of usage and energy efficiency makes this a real treat, especially for those who’ve been looking for small coffee makers they can use while being out on the road. The device, which fills its battery through 12V socket available in close to every vehicle, can make a real quality brew of coffee in a couple of minutes and it’s a combo device too. Its only drawback is that it can only make one cup per one go.
