These alcohol stoves have been around for a few years. They're on eBay - people make them using various designs. I bought two - the first one cost $6.00. They definitely need a wind screen, and I fashioned one myself using part of a coffee can. They also need a pot support that will fit the pan (12 oz titanium cup is good) that you're using (wind screen around the whole thing).
They use the kind of alcohol used on boat stoves best. I've tried using rubbing alcohol - doesn't work. The alcohol costs about $5/ qt.
These are reliable stoves. You need to put in as much fuel as you will use up to heat up your meal or water or whatever, and then it dies off. A bit of a problem to "turn it off" and you can't adjust the heat. But you quickly get a feel for how much fuel you will need for 8 oz cup of coffee, etc.
A great option when pack weight is a consideration.
