I am also a Sweet Maria's fan, but our coffee consumption is so out of hand that we mostly order from Genuine Origin now. $2.70/lb for single origin coffee from Huehuetenango is hard to beat, and it is great coffee too.
At home we use a combination of an OXO automated pour over to be ready when I get up and a Breville espresso maker to keep me going during the day. In the camper we use a GSI drip pot. 50oz is about what it takes to get the two of us going! I prefer using a standard mellita paper filter, the coffee is better than the screen types, and cleanup is way easier. I will admit that I am lazy and pre-grind the coffee for a trip. I have a hand grinder, but it is just too much work before coffee!
For backpacking the Starbucks Via is also our go to, followed up by Nuun energy during the day. As far as instant coffee, the Via's seem to be as good as it gets.
