Easy to use and for large quantities.
The percolator was invented at the beginning of the 19th century and was intended for brewing coffee on an open fire. Nowadays, percolators often use a built-in heating element running with electricity.
The use of the percolator was especially popular in the 1950s and 1960s. Today, the percolator is still widely used, especially in the education and catering industry. The percolator is suitable for quickly brewing large amounts of coffee. The water in the percolator is heated from below. The steam rises through a tube and then drips through the ground coffee, back into the can. The most important aspect of the percolator is the duration of the preparation process. If the coffee brews for a long time you get a very strong coffee and if it does not brew long enough, it will turn the other way around. Coffee made with a percolator is known to be hot and robust.
