    Now I know prediction is not possible...

    Just the same I'm going to have a few extra propane bottles filled.

    The most important point.........

    If there is no electricity can you make a reasonable cup of COFFEE?

    Of course you can. A camp stove and a French Press work great.

    All coffee addicts must have a plan B for when there's no electricity. If
    you can boil water, you can create a coffee "bag" like a tea bag out of a
    filter and just drop it in boiling water. Never tried this so if it works
    let me know. lol

    A little sterno stove can come in handy for a half decent cup of instant
    coffee and it's ultra portable.

    Camp coffee..... like Turkish coffee. use finely ground coffee, toss the
    coffee in a container with water, bring it to a boil, take it off the
    boil, let it sit, pour into cups. Do not drink it to the bottom of the cup.
    The big problem for most people will be the cream and sugar. Not a
    problem for me because I drink coffee black.

    I second the idea of a French Press. Infinitely better coffee than
    instant, and doesn't really take any extra effort. (Assuming you have
    a french press, of course. I bought a french press travel mug for ~$10
    or so at Target for when staying at hotels.

    I had no electricity for most of the day after our recent earthquake
    and the ability to make a cup of coffe was what I missed most.

    AI assume a "french press" is what we call a "plunger pot". Good, but
    even better is the old ibrik and a cup of coffe made the traditional
    way. . . .

    Just felt another little 'quake.

    Yes...Go outside and use the propane burner aka gas grill. We only make
    filter coffee so it's easy without the current. In a pinch boil the
    water and pour it over the ground coffee in a large mug. Let steep and
    drink, avoiding the grounds.

    ==

    In addition to the other good ideas expressed, one can buy 12 volt
    coffee brewers for your auto presuming that you have one available.
    They make one cup at a time in most cases and are reasonably priced.
    Don't forget to have sugar and powdered creamer available if desired.

    Since my house was GREATLY effected in the 94 quake. Many of my neighbors
    short circuited some didn't even know or better said could not figure out
    how to make a pot of coffee. We were without power for several days, TV was
    unavailable. The stores had no power and could not sell things. The built
    up crud in the sewer system dislodged and the my toilets backed up. Not
    only that we could now leave the area because several freeways fell.

    So why post such drivel? The answer is obvious. People will think. At least
    they'll have a nice warm cup of coffee.

    Dimitri.

    Of course... I make very good coffee in my new Farberware percolator
    on my gas stove... I'd use it all the time but it's more work to
    clean.

    I have a Melita cone filter stashed away for just that reason.
    And a couple of ways to heat water without electricity.

    Several areas here in SoCal lost power yesterday (9/27) due to overload
    on the power system from air conditioning during all-time record heat.
    113 degrees F in Los Angeles. No earthquake required. The prediction
    is possible thunderstorms tomorrow, which can also cause power outages.

    Last ditch backup is instant. No, I take that back. I have some
    caffeine tablets.
