Vintage hoover 8800 percolator

by Kea
(High Desert Ca)

HEAVEN!!! Don't even bother with the modern percolators, buy a vintage one. The quality of the machine and the taste of the coffee is beyond compare. I have a Keurig, French press, Chemex, and 3 diferent sized Italian Moka Pots. NONE MAKE COFFEE AS GOOD AS MY HOOVER PERK! Everyone who visits my home and gets to experience it remarks about how wonderful the coffee tastes and inquire about how to get a vintage percolator. Of course, I also use quality fresh roasted beans from Peets that I order every two weeks from them directly so that makes a difference as well, but there is something about percolator coffee brewed properly that just beats them all in my opinion!
