Question: How does a coffee percolator work and is there a way to percolate coffee without one please!?
They heat up the water and drip it onto coffee granules which work their way through picking up the coffee flavour!.

You can do it without one, be like making tea, put the coffee in some kind of bag which the water can get in and out of the add hot water, leave to stand and there you go!.

Failing that, buy instant!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Percolators aren't that great because they keep throwing the same water over the coffee grounds which makes it taste bitter!. There's no way to percolate coffee yourself effectively at home!. Get a filter machine, they're extremely cheap to buy and work differently to a percolator because the water only passes through the grounds once and is then kept at a constant temperature, this results in a much better tasting coffee with no bitterness or diluting of the flavour!.

EDIT For you to attempt it at home without a machine would be a ludicrous waste of time and resources when you can just by instant coffee and chuck hot water over it!. Buy a kettle!. How do Americans manage without kettles, I'll never know!!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

sounds to me as if you're in need of a flex capacitor!.!. they retail for $4!.99 at best buy ask a local rep about it!. sure this will help!. best of luckWww@FoodAQ@Com

the water boils which expands and passes throught the coffee grinds!.
and yes, boil water, add coffee, then filter out the grinds!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

cowboy way is in pot could use small sauce pan with lid brop beans in to water they use eeg shells just crush them dropt in while cooking bring to boil strain of and enjoy!. popaWww@FoodAQ@Com
