    New percolator. New method of percolating. 1950's, just like Grandmother used. May be a later date.

    I used to use a Bodum French Press cafetiere, a Senseo, or a Bialetti Moka Express. But I have been enjoying Nescafé Azera recently. Sacrilege...

    Always wanted to try one of those. Saw one last year for around $5 but the internals were missing.

    Now that incandescents have been effectively outlawed (what country is this again?) I want to see him make one out of fluorescent tubes.

    A country that is owned by corporations, well at least somewhat.

    I have a GE percolator that makes a fine batch on the weekend. Like anything it's 80% coffee and 20% prep. I also like dragging out the FrenchP on occasion but I rarely have time.

    I really want to try a small french press but I don't know if I'd have the time either.

    The only coffee I enjoy is Navy CPO approved coffee that will take the paint off the side of a U.S. Navy Ship 2 Fathoms below the water line.
    Memorial day is coming up soon, next monday. Take the time to thank a Veteran. (I'm not trying to hijack this thread)

    I have a vintage SS percolator that I keep in the camper. It makes a great cup of coffee, usually strong because I eye ball the amount of coffee I add each morning and usually forget to keep an eye on when it starts to perk. At home, we have a Kuerig that both the wife and I enjoy. We buy coffee directly from Kuerig online and get free shipping all the way up here.

    Melitta Pour Over. Quick and easy clean-up.

    Well, now I've done it! I bought a coffee maker from a Frisbee company. Yes, today, while getting some coffee from a local roaster, I overheard a group of people discussing how they all use the AeroPress. Being the curious George that I am, I purchased one and will compare it to my usual method.

    This morning was Keurig with Maxwell House in it.

    Erik Redd Lizabeth, baby, I'm comin' to join ya.

    The Bonivita is pretty much the same. The carafe and cone are Melitta, it just has a water reservoir and heating element. I believe it has a 1400 watt heating element, and it heats the water faster and hotter than most coffeemakers. The end result is about the same as hand pouring hot water over the cone filter, it's just more convenient. The downside is it takes up more counter space and the Bonivita with carafe is about $160 whereas the Melitta carafe and cone filter are about $35.
