Coffee Pot?

Postby paps » Sun May 27, 2007 5:38 pm

Hi all,

My wife bought a coffee ot from BCF,,,why? "Because it looks good!" go figure.....Anyway it has a aluminum rod in the middle with a cyclinder that sits up the top that you fill with coffee. Just wondering how you use it. Has anyone used one of these??

Other than looking good I am hoping it makes a good coffee

Cheers
Ben

Coffee Pot

Thanks Komodo,

I will post a picture for you. We got it sorted and it actually makes a damn good coffee.

Not sure what you call them but you put ground coffee in the top compartment and water in the bottom. When the water boils it pushes steam and water up a pipe that runs up the middle. The water then drips through the top compartment and back into the bottom again.

It took about 20 minutes of boiling to get a strong coffee but it was good. I will post a pic shortly.

Cheers

It's an old fashioned coffee percolator. My dad had one years ago and I have one made by Coleman.

However for that espresso, latte opr capuccino when you are out in the bush, check one of these out. Price is a bit high but looks good. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Stovetop-Espress ... dZViewItem

Just had a further look and these little babies retail for around $160.00 so the ebay one is a bargain. https://www.blisscoffee.com.au/ProductL ... ne%20Other

Does it look like this?

They're pretty easy to use. Make a good creamy coffee but can leave it a little tart by burning the grind slightly. Over all a very good machine - especially for making stronger coffee ;)

Derek we have one of those coffee machines too. Good Machine - just a little high on the maintenance because of all the seals - good if your using it all the time though! and that E-Bay one is CHEAP CHEAP!

Here is a photo of my coffee pot. About 12 yerars old and as good as new. What I like about it is the stainless steel rim that stops the enamel chipping.

Not the same actually. I have one of each.

Yours makes an espresso coffee and works under pressure wheras mine works by the water dripping through the grounds.
