I tried them all, Percolators are the best! GE Immersible 1970
Electric Coffee Percolator
I always had a hard time making a good cup of coffee at home. I grind my own beans, filtered water etc. I had many different coffee makers Bunn pour over, Bunn Pod, French Press and all of the coffee was just OK.
I don't care what what the so called coffee experts say about percolators, for example the coffee is bitter or burned. They are all wrong!! Trust me on this, I've tried everything. I went and purchased a 1970 GE immersible percolator and it makes the best cup of coffee!! The coffee is very hot, smooth and rich. Try to find a vintage percolator, one from the 60's or 70's. DO NOT BUY THE NEW JUNK FROM CHINA, many reviews say that they burn out in a few months. Don't fall for all of the modern bull.
