For those that use the Melitta "Ready set Joe" Pour over cones,
Image

But like a longer brew/extraction time, Here's a gadget you might like:
Image

This dude's got a valve in the bottom that holds the coffee in the cone till you set it on a cup/thermos/whatever then it relieves itself. Thataway you can make your coffee as strong/weak as you like. Takes a #4 filter.

Still like my aeropress better though.
Wife prefers the "clever coffee dripper."
To each his/her own.
If it's not broken, you're not trying hard enough.

I have one of those too. Before the outdoor store GI Joes went out of business in our part of the world, my wife bought one for me for my birthday. Mine is the J102 model with the little plastic jacket around it to keep it warm while we're camping.
Image The little jacket doesn't really work that well, by the way.

Pro Tip: Take it apart for cleaning it while it's still warm. If you wait for it to cool, you'll never get it apart. A quick look on the search engine of your choice on the web shows that they are still available from various sources.

After I brew the coffee, it goes into an old stainless steel thermos for the rest of the day. I'm the only coffee drinker in our camp. My wife tends toward instant hot cocoa.

I've been using this french press and mug combo unit for several yrs and been very pleased.

The liner is stainless steel making it easy to clean. And, the plastic lid keeps me from burning my lips.

I use a Saeco automatic expresso maker One button and it grinds the beans and pours it for you.Fantastic expresso. Comes from having an italian boss at one stage . I know the lazy way but I love it :) :)
And can have it anywhere if you have a generator

I didn't follow all that inverted aeropress plunger talk -- it looked like a medical procedure to me -- but I recognized the old Nescafe glass globe coffee cup! Cool that somebody still has one of these!

I learned a new way to have coffee at Tearstock...just wander down to the part of the campground where the chapter directors' trailers are. You'll see a large coffee dispenser machine.

You left out the individual cup drip method; ie. using a Melitta style filter.

Excellent coffee as strong as you like, fresh every cup.
