I tried via last year.  Going back to pour over this year.  It's the same way I make it at home, so my trail coffee is the norm.

SM, I'm talking about the yuppie pot not the brew. I like good coffee as much or more than the next person and I can make it using "traditional" methods.

So these strainer thingies, is it like a fine copper mesh or something? Someone got a name, picture/link, store, I'd like to look at one.

The plastic, one cup pour over that I use can either be used with a plain old #2 paper filter, a mesh filter, or a cloth reusable filter

I generally use the metal mesh filter, but it does leave some silt in the bottom of the cup.  Using the paper filters avoids that.

Hi. I know much time has passed but I'd like to share my experience, despite this thread is so old.

This is not likely to be what you want but it's a true story about making good coffee. It goes back maybe 50 years when I was in Boy Scouts.

The method was as follows

1) Fill an empty coffee can about 3/4 full of water.
2) Boil water over an open wood fire.
3) When water is boiling dump in about 1 cup of regular coffee.
4) After the coffee has boiled for a minute or so, remove can from fire.
5) Take a red hot wood stick from the fire and thrust it into the center of the "coffee pot". This will cause the water to boil in the center and create a convection cell with the water rising in the center and falling around the edges.
6) Let the coffee cool briefly, then bang the side of the can with something. This causes the grounds to drop to the bottom.
7) Pour carefully and serve with sugar and instant Starlac milk powder.

If you are worried about exactly how much water, how much coffee, how long to boil, etc. you're not in the right place to be doing this. None of that stuff really matters it's always good.

Never do I remember such good coffee after a cold night on an overnight.

I have started using Mount Hagens instant coffee for hiking. It tastes more like coffee than Viva and it sells for under $ 7 for 25 packets on Amazon. Made in Germany.

If it is one of the cheapest, lightest weight aluminum percolators, keep it when decide to move onto some other method.

Throwout the guts. Carry your stove in it. Boil water in it. Itís got a great handle. If it gets hot use the piece of flannel you use to prevent rattle for pot holder. All you need for one or two person trips.

Best.
