    A throw back to the days when coffee would really ‘perk’ you up.

    I haven’t used my stovetop percolator in years. When I have time to keep an eye on it, though, I’ll use my Moka Pot. Makes really strong coffee.

    Party line phone, outhouse, percolated coffee with canned milk. Fiberglass curtains and Fatima cigarettes…..flashback to childhood.

    I have a conference room sized percolator

    Don’t use it much but if I want a lot of coffee or really strong coffee it works great

    I remember the old Maxwell House commercials with the sound of the coffee perking and seeing the coffee bubble up the glass top.

    If you have a percolator pot that can be used over a campfire, when the power goes out in your neighborhood and you’re the only one with coffee, you will be chosen King by your neighbors.

    It’s good to be da King.

    I prefer coffee being made the old way with a percolator.

    Then there is the old “Cowboy Coffee” where a handful of grounds are added to a pot of boiling water. When the grounds have sunk to the bottom, the coffee is taken from the top. Handy in really remote areas.

    Hard to believe anyone is still drinking percolated coffee, but Mom does. She will even drink yesterday’s percolated coffee cold before breakfast. It’s a thick line between coffee connisseur and caffeine addict. :) :(

    Boy that percolator on the stove brings back memories. i can still see the hot water coming out of the top of the tube that the coffee basket sat onto, and the water falling onto the coffee grounds inside it. i can smell the freshly perked coffee now.

    I got a cheap camping percolator from Wal**** that had a seam between the bottom and the round side of the pot. When heated, the bottom plate would heat (and expand!) faster than the side. When it’s on the fire, it constantly leaks…

    At work in the caf, our put-your-cup-under-the-lever-and-push water was replaced with an appliance with cold and tepid settings and a UV, maybe a filter. Often closer to where I sit, I usually just go to the other sink with just a tap.

    The onliest 2 ways to get worse coffee than from a percolator are are to use a Kuerig or go to Starbucks.
