Overview

Nostalgia in a cup, the Capresso Perk Electric Percolator offers rich brews and an automatic shutoff for perfect perc'd coffee every time. The rich scent and full-bodied sweetness of a properly percolated coffee is hard to recreate in other methods, but the Perk's 40-ounce capacity, stainless steel build and simple temperature control offers no-frills access to quality coffee from yesteryear.

Features and Functionality

  • It's Electric - More consistent than stovetop percolating methods, the large heating element and thermal cutoff creates a repeatably rich brew without burnt or bitter notes.
  • Stainless Steel - The steel design of the perc pot will survive even the busiest kitchen's bumps and spills.
  • Brew Indicators - The Perk features a clear top you can watch the percolation through and an indicator light once the brew is finished.
Pros
  • Better Than Stovetop - Stovetop models may make it on a camping trip, but are quite a bit more difficult to brew with since you can easily boil your coffee (bitter) or let it percolate for too long (burnt). This thermostat-equipped version cuts out the element as soon as percolation gets going.
  • Aromatherapy - Possibly the best smelling coffee preparation method out there!
  • Dark, Dark, Dark - If you like your coffee thick enough for a spoon to stand up in, this is your brew method.
Cons
  • Dark, Cont. - The dark, heavily steeped flavor profile of a percolator masks a lot of the more delicate flavor notes in coffee (especially light roasts!).
  • Short Cord - The Perk's cord is a little inconvenient at a hair over 2ft long.
How Does it Compare?

Percolated coffee tends to smell richer and taste darker and sweeter than other brew methods. It also comes out piping hot, make sure to let it cool off a bit before your first sip!

Tips and Tricks

Make sure to match up the lock and unlock symbols with the dot on the lid. It is possible (if you try hard enough) to overtighten the lid in the wrong direction.
