before I decided on a method, I'd make sure I liked that method of coffee brewing. My wife likes good coffee and buys it from a small batch roaster, but only likes Melita-style drip and neither likes French press nor espresso. Any on the road brew type can be tried pretty easily at a coffee house or a friends place before you shell out the shekels for an on-the-road system. Pour-over, French Press, perk, Moka-type psudo espresso, manual espresso, etc. are all available in camping form. Brew what works for you.
