The ideal addition to the Basecamp kitchen for serious coffee lovers. The 8 Cup Percolator is a big, solid coffee pot that is perfect for small groups or those who like a lot of coffee to start the day
GSI Outdoors says:
This ultra-rugged, Glacier Stainless campfire percolator uses stainless steel to deliver a great tasting cup of Joe year after year, just like grandpa used to make. This camp classic's PercView top lets you gauge the strength of your brew. Wherever you're making coffee, you won't be disappointed.
GSI Outdoors' Glacier Stainless 8 Cup Percolator is a decent sized, well built coffee pot. 8 cups is a stretch, unless you like particularly small cups of coffee but I've found it will easily do 4+ good sized servings to get you going. The design of the pot is simple and solid making it perfect for the outdoors. A wire handle allows you to hang the pot over the campfire or you can simply place it straight on there. It will blacken the nice shiny steel immediately but this just makes it look more authentic!
The 'PercView' glass knob on the top allows you to keep an eye on the coffee as it 'percs' but I have to say it's not the best window to watch the progress through if you are precise with your timings. Once you get used to the amount of coffee to put in and the timings for getting your brew right this is a great piece of kit.
