    Not really old but it does draw attention when camping.

    The word may be assortment, not collection. For coffee one really does need more than one way.
    I do have a collection, you may not need nearly that many.

    So, is it not normal to have a coffee "corner" in the kitchen? :whistle:

    I would go for a moka pot too. What about an open type? They look are great together with small stoves like the Primus 71 and such.

    Normal in my house. We put coffee very high on the list of important items.
    I used the Aeropress the other day. I use the Hario kit, Chemex, Technivorm, Bialetti, and French Press often.
    I have several vacuum sets.
    A Pyrex percolator.
    Many metal percolators and stove top espresso makers.
    Several types of pour over styles.
    A few kettles ( :D/ )
    Grinders for use and mounted on the wall and shelves.

    I would be in trouble if I was mandated to attend "Coffee Anonymous".

    @snwcmpr , I found a coffee grinder for you in a store in Ashboro. It is about 5 ft tall. Brad IMG_1494.jpg

    The flywheels and eagle on top make me think that should be driven by a Case steam engine. Great find.

    The grinder cannot help the roasted coffee supply. It would still be 1 lb at a time. :)

    Using the term 'assortment' is surely denial. :)

    And one I think I will be using more frequently from henceforth.

    I use the word assortment honestly, as a group of items much smaller than a collection, but greater than the minimum.

    74237E31-0831-4D95-B489-9E28C98175C6.jpeg Assortment is a good word. I have several options , all for different applications. French presses of different sizes, aero press, a pour over, and bean grinders for home and field. Choosing the right set is like choosing the right stove, there is no one right answer. Don’t limit your options.
    Come to think of it, I have a few different “ assortments “.
