Thinking about one that I've been offered NiB, so the Guy Selling it cannot even offer an opinion..

So Who actually has one and has actually used it

As a note I have NO intention of actually taking it camping,
this is intended for use during one of our winter power outages!

I don't have one but I have been doing some looking at them and a little research. It showed up that there is an early model that had a lighter duty bottom that if you got too wild with the heat from the stove it melts the bottom plate of the coffee maker off. Other than that if you used it sensibly I haven't seen anything bad about them from all that I have seen.

I think you are talking about the one that sits on a Coleman stove. He is talking about the stand alone one that runs off the 1 lb. green propane tanks. They have a built in burner. 

Allen, 

Do a search. I think there are a few posts about them from a few years ago. From what I remember, they worked fine, but went through the propane. If you can get it at a good price, go for it. For what you want it for, it will work fine. 

I have the one that sits on a Coleman stove like ZRE2009 is talking about. It brews slow, but it is great. I get the same coffee out of it that I get from my Mr. Coffee Drip maker at home. I use it all the time when I dry camp.

I did search and came up with  two "hits" on the search, including this discussion.

The early ones that sit on stove are great. The newer one do have an issue if left on stove too long. You can look at them and tell the difference. I have one I've been usine 10 years at least. Like Dan above stated slow but good. They take up a good bit of space in your camp box though.

The coleman drip coffee maker which is what I believe your referring to, works very well, and makes a very good cup of coffee. The water temperture is below the boiling point which is what you want. The coffee always seems very smooth. great coffee.

At first I to thought the drip coffee maker was slow but when I timed it, it produces one cup every two minutes from the time you put on the stove to begin the brewing cycle. When I compared it to my stove top percolator coffee maker it makes coffee faster than the percolator.

Another advantage of the drip coffee maker is that you never mess up the coffee. In a percolator it is easy to brew to long and or get the water too hot.

You will like and appreciate how good the coffee is that the Coleman drip coffee maker can brew. Smooth everytime. Get it You will like it.

I've had both types, and IMHO, they're slow. But I love it.

And I'm the one who burned up a stove top model.  I don't know which is older, but there are two types, one that has the base made with aluminum, and one with Stainless Steel.  I can attest to the fact that a 413 stove will reach the melting point of aluminum.

Da Wife got me the propane model after I smelted the old one.

I've had one for about a year now it works great and makes good coffee. I purchased the stainless steel carafe so as to avoid breakage

I've got both and they work fine. Just be sure to shut them off once the coffee is done brewing.

I like the one I have.  It works great, and brews full pots very well, but a bit slower than a usual home drip brew maker.  I take mine each time I go camping, and won't be going back to freeze dry crystals again.

That seems a little extreme to me.  If you're going to take it car camping then spring for the electrical hookups and use a regular coffee maker.  Me, I would rather use a stove top perc when camping or cowboy coffee.

Yer not a real cowboy if you don't strain the grounds through your teeth.
Strangely I'm a fan of percolator coffee but only when camping, I've made it at home before and it was terrible.

Tent camping anywhere with electric is also kind of terrible. The only reason I'd stay in a big campground is if it was full of my Coleman friends.

I use mine fairly regularly.  Here are my thoughts/observations:
1. yes, it is a little slow, but faster than a percolator.  
2. The carafe capacity (I use the stainless) is 10 cups but the water reservoir is more like 8, 8.5, so it can't make 10 cups of coffee.
3. It makes as good a cup of coffee as my electric drip.  Keep in mind its the same thing, just different heat source.
4. Thin, stainless carafe keeps coffee pretty hot even after gas is turned off, but adjustable flow is nice on cold days.
 

Special note: The original one I bought had a factory defect and it was almost a disaster.  There is a back-flow valve at the bottom of the reservior that allows water to down down , but keeps water and air from coming back up.  Either it was assembled incorrectly, or the valve came dislodged from the bottom, flipped over, and reseated itself.  So when I went to use it the back-flow valve was in upside down and wouldn't let water down so it got VERY hot and started melting plastic.  I reported this to coleman and they sent me a new one.  They didn't ask for the old one back so I fixed it and gave it to my buddy (yes, I told him about the defect).  I always check to ensure the valve is positioned correctly before I use it.  

Regardless, I'm very popular when the power goes out in the winter in my neighborhood, and mostly because of this coffee maker not all my loaner lanterns and stoves.

I solved the carafe capability. When Da Wife bought me my profane pot, she also got the stainless carafe. I use the glass one to measure the water, and after a few minutes of brewing, I finish off the remainder of water, so a full pot is brewed.

I use mine--the one that goes on top of a stove, not the profanity--every time I camp. I love it. Just don't fall back asleep and let the danged thing melt.

I put a tea kettle of water on the main burner of my 426 and the drip-o-later on one of the aux. burners. When the water boils and the kettle screams, I fill my  thermos with boiling water. As soon as I pour my first cup, I dump the water from the thermos and put the remaining coffee in there. Then I wake the rest of the camp and start another pot full.

Then start the bacon....

Troop 111, we use the profane one and it does fine as long as it is out of the wind. My wife and I like the stove top version and use it every camping trip. We also take along a Farberware Superfast for when we hook up to electricity (good for heating dish water too).

Oddly perked coffee tastes just fine to me when camping, otherwise I'm not a fan, LOL.

I dug out my mom's old camping stuff, which lead me to this new obsession with lanterns, and found her old peculator. I started off using it at the edge of the campfire while camping. Now I use it EVERYDAY!!  In fact it's percing away now on the stove,,,,lol.

I've got one of the older stove top models. I guess it is older anyway, the heat plate on the bottom looks to be steel or stainless steel. It is DEFINATELY not aluminum... 

I have used the propane quikpot. 

The advantage of a quickpot, no need for a separate burner, so it doesn't take up space on the stove.

The disadvantage of the quickpot is it needs its own fuel supply, so dedicated hose to the big tank, or a 1lb cylinder, and I am not sure it can even use the bulk tank.

For ME I don't want the added failure points of the model with the burner. Just put it on the burner and call it good...  I have used mine to keep the coffee going after Hurricanes Rita, Ike, and Harvey. No problems, no added moving parts or seals to go bad...

Both styles are distinctly slower than an electric drip pot, but notably faster than a percolator... 

It does the same thing as the electric, and produces the same quality coffee.

The one 'weak' spot of the Coleman stove and profane drip coffee pots is the water one way vavle. It's in the reservoir - and it's plastic.

It had been dislodged in a friends propane Coleman and after a few minutes we were wondering why it was still 'gurgling' - the one way valve was laying in the bottom. Got it back in its hole and the coffee got done.

Just google quikpot and you will see that Amazon has the coffee maker for $74.84, and the stainless carafe is offered by at least one seller, probably selling out NOS as Coleman no longer makes them, for a little over $20.00

The quikpot is nice enough, but I am really partial to my stove top unit. I use it on the camp stove during power outages (my stove at home is electric). I am not all that crazy about having to have yet another fuel burner / valve etc... Just more points of potential failure.

You can definately tell a generational line between perc, and drip brewed coffee folks. I am Gen X and am absolutely not a fan of perc coffee, but my sister in law is a boomer, and she won't drink any coffee not brewed in a perc pot... 

To me, percolated coffee will forever be associated with my parents church socials when I was a kid, the people running the percolators would set them up and pretty much forget them, letting the coffee continuously overbrew, causing a nasty stink in the long run, and creating this sludge that people would feign that they enjoyed...  I remember sometime in the late 70s when they brought in a 3 pot Bunn drip coffee maker. The adults stopped taking the coffee cups to the water fountain to thin out the sludge, and the horrible burnt coffee smell went away.

I have used a perc pot of my own, a 10 cup Texsport stainless steel model, still have it. It makes okay coffee. I found that since the coffee that is typically available pre ground is ground for drip coffee makers, using a filter in the perc pot REALLY helps keep the grit out of the teeth! However disc filters are getting harder and harder to find. Many grocery stores no longer carry them.

For the OPs purposes, I wouldn't think a perc pot would be what they would want, but then again, it may, they asked specifically about the self contained propane drip machine, which is all well and good with its advantages and disadvantages. 

Another item or two to consider are pour over drip brewers such as the Melita cone brewers, heat up your water and pour your water over the brew basket to drip make your coffee. GSI outdoors has a super tiny foldable model, lots of MFGs make cheap molded plastic models. 

No matter which way you go, if you are a coffee drinker,you just gotta keep the coffee going when the power goes out!
