Primula’s 9 cup Percolator delivers piping hot percolated coffee from your stovetop or campfire. In fact, one benefit of a percolator is the ability to brew coffee from practically any heat source as long as you have a flat surface to place your pot on. This is one reason why many campers and travelers prefer percolators over electric coffee makers or breakable glass presses and pots. A coffee percolator works by taking the heated liquid from your coffee grounds and reheating it and running it over the grounds repeatedly. The effect of a percolator repeatedly passing coffee over the grounds delivers a significantly different flavor and strength than traditional French presses or automatic drip makers. Many say it produces smoother tasting coffee. Percolators emit a robust aroma and a distinct gurgling sound while brewing. It is extremely convenient when making coffee you want to stay piping hot for large gatherings. Primula’s percolator is made of durable aluminum and features a matching lid, lipped spout and stay-cool black plastic handle. It holds 36 ozs, enough for 9 cups of coffee.
