I love coffee. It's really my only vice. (Unless you count poultry and goat ownership as a vice, which I sometimes do.)
I also really love old things. Which explains why my house and belongings look the way they do. Mr. Chanclas also loves old things. This is his favorite old thing (not counting his wife):

Coffee percolators were invented in the early 1800's and were very popular until the early 1970's when automatic drip coffee makers came out. The nice thing about a percolator is that it doesn't require a paper filter. Some, like this electric one, have their own heat source, but others are for stovetop use.
Does anybody else have a sweet spot for percolated coffee? I'm going to keep using mine and see if I can perfect my method.
