The Atgear  coffee filter is around R250
Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.

I bought this from due south, not bad but a bit expensive, R35 makes 3 cups
no plungers or pots needed

Bought this at Checkers Hyper for R79. & some change they come in 2 sizes 1 & 2 mug, also coffee plungers 1 & 2 mug size same price will take photo of plunger when back at home.

A copy (Chinese?) of the classic Bialietti espresso stove top pot - one of my recommendations for trips mentioned early in the thread. Good buy and can go on a fire grid as well.  :thumleft:

Hi Dom Yes it is made in China as to the Label but not a bad Knock Off  Capacity 6 cups, the other smaller one I guess will be a 3 Cup as it is halve the size for a approx. R34 bucks & some Change.
The Coffee Plunger is 350ml Capacity.
Bought the Travel Mug as well for the same price as the Percolator.

I bought my Coleman Peak1 400A in 1987.
I've lost the spare generator I bought with the stove at some stage.
I discarded the advice to only use special stove fuel or at least unleaded and used whatever was in my bikes tank :D

It did not give me a moment of grief. It looks a bit shabby and the feet are rusted but it powered through Eskom's most recent distributions of electrical darkness and also boiled the early morning coffee water at Tweede Tol.
It was relieved of domestic duties since I converted the kitchen to LPG.

The Coleman's pump does not pump so lekker any more. Is anyone here a Coleman maintenance specialist? Can the pump be replaced or repaired?

My espresso maker vote goes for Valia. They are made in Spain and they are roughly 2/3 of the price of an equivalently sized Bialetti with IMHO no sacrifice of quality.
Due to operational safety concerns I would NOT use a Chinese espresso maker. It is after all a pressure vessel :o
My local coffee shop also has gaskets for Valia & Bialetti in stock :thumleft:
