I always wanted to buy a coffee percolator. Those made out of glass and stainless steel. Do they make a good coffee? Are they easy to use?

I prefer the taste of coffee made in a percolator to that made in a drip coffee maker. The water gets hotter, and draws more of the coffee flavor out of the ground beans.

I no longer use my drip coffee maker unless the kiddos are coming over for hot chocolate.

Norma, I don't know where you are, but the best price I have found on them here in SE PA is at K-Mart.

I've seen many different models at Marshall's. I'll look at k-mart too. I'm in Orlando, FL.
Are percolators most used in the Middle Eastern or it's French? or none of this?
I always wanted to buy one for its beauty, didn't know if they are good. Anyway, we like our coffee strong.

I don't know where they come from, but they are definitely not French. They use a French Press for their coffee. If you like your coffee strong, you're going to love perked coffee. Especially with a good brand of Columbian coffee. I use Chock Full O' Nuts Columbian. Yum!

Theresa,
Thank you for clarifying this issue to me. Now I understand! icon_surprised.gif
I do have a percolator, it is a Bialetti coffee maker (love her). So, the one I would like to buy is called French press. I looked online and saw that these two coffee makers are totally different from it other.
Well, do you know if a French press give you a good coffee? That Chock Full O' Nuts Columbian must be very good!

My friend Kathy owns a French Press, and she says it's the best coffee she's ever tasted. She's got an exceptional palate, so I would trust her judgement.

Thank you so much for all your answers Theresa. I'll buy a French press and also that special gourmet coffee of yours.
Wish you a Happy New Year with much love and peace!

Oh, Chock Full O' Nuts isn't a gourmet coffee, it's a staple of the New York City diet. It's pretty easy to find on the East Coast.

Now, if you want to try some gourmet coffee, get your grinder onto some Jamaican Blue beans. That's some good stuff, too!

Have fun with your new coffee toys!

Thanks again Theresa. We'll taste both of them. If we were neighbors I could invite you for some coffee and biscotti.
Keep yourself nice and warm! icon_wink.gif
