Do coffee percolators make a better tasting coffee?

People who regularly use coffee percolators at home or while traveling, say it is some of the best tasting coffee they have ever made at home.

Can brewing your coffee in a percolator coffee pot, either a stove top percolator or one of the electric percolators really give you a better tasting brew?

Many people insist that coffee perked in a percolator brings out a deeper, richer flavor from the ground coffee.

A coffee percolator is one of the best manual coffee

You will find that there are many different styles of percolators for both home and camping, including RV use.

An electric percolator will cost a bit more, and and the advantage is that you will have more features with an electric model.

Going one better is the cordless percolator which allows you greater flexibility an and more options.

How do you use a percolator coffee pot?

Whether you select an electric percolator or a stove top model, the set up and brewing is identical for both types of coffee percolators.

This may seem obvious, but if you add more freshly ground coffee to the filter basket, the stronger you coffee will be.

Likewise, when you allow the coffee to perk a few minutes longer, the stronger it will be. With percolated coffee you have 2 options that will help you achieve just the perfect strength of coffee, without either adding any bitterness or burnt flavor to your coffee.

How to choose the best percolator

There are 2 basic types of coffee percolators

Electric percolators, which need to be plugged into a power source, like thee Hamilton Beach model shown on the right.

The nice thing about electric percolators is that they stop perking at the right time, so that you do not need to watch the coffee pot as closely as you would with a stovetop type of percolator.

An electric percolator can go with you camping, as long as you have an electric source ... either a generator or a campsite with electric hookups.

Alternately, there are stovetop percolators, which use something other than electric to heat the water in the pot ... such as a gas range or a campfire.

These types of manual coffee makers are available in both glass and stainless models. Some say that a glass carafe results in a cleaner tasting coffee, but I have not noticed any taste difference between the two types of coffee percolators.

One pot for all your needs

Having used a percolator coffee pot myself, I can tell you that this is one coffee maker that does double, even triple duty.

With a coffee percolators, you will be able to brew up any number of cups of coffee at one time, from as few as 4 to as many as 12. So there is no need for a small coffee maker and a large coffee maker.

And I like the way it looks on the stovetop, so it is always handy for drop in company. Plus, as many of my guests and family enjoy tea, the percolator is the ideal maker for brewing loose tea. From Yerba Mate to loose green organic tea, we get a smooth, full bodied tea by just allowing it to perk for 3 minutes at the most.

My neighbor uses a Dualit cordless electric coffee percolator and loves how it goes from perking to table so easily. The Dualit percolator stays hot for a long time without the need to be plugged in, which means your coffee is always hot when you want a second cup.

This cordless percolator is somewhat more expensive than other electric percolators, but you will find that in the long run that you will appreciate the cordless feature, especially if you entertain at all.
