I'm putting it on the list.
I also had to Google that puppy, and I will put it on my list when my peculator gives up the ghost.

i've had mine for at least 10 years, so they've been around for quite a while.

I usually use the genny and my braun electric drip in the RV any more, but I still do a lof of tent camping, hunting, fishing, and the percolator always gets used on those trips. I have a 20 cup model for Scout trips when there are more people around. I like it better than the french press. I usually grind the coffee coarser at the grocery store as suggested above.

You gotta try Amarula - from South Africa, looks like Baileys - fabulous in coffee - or straight up

One of the very first things we got when we bought our rig. I wanted something like the Bunn coffee maker without actually having to spend the money for it and this was a great substitute. I've used it inside on the stove and on the Coleman stove outside. It may take a while longer than some, but it makes an excellent pot of coffee. I grind my own whole beans - just can't drink the ground stuff that comes in cans anymore. I don't think you would regret having one.

When tent camping that is all we used. Loved it. It was always slower but then I started to use hot water(have the coleman instant hot water) and it didn't take any time at all to have my first cup of coffee. You do need a carafe to keep the coffee warm.

but, since there's just the two of us most of the time, the DW(non-coffee drinker)has asked me to try a french press. she wants more room on the stove to cook.
we'll use the Coleman when we're camping with friends and family.
my wife and I hated waiting for coffee to percolate plus the coffee is so dam hot its almost impossible to drink right away...so we tried a french press. Holy cow not only is the coffee that much better it is faster. you only have to have the water to a small boil and pour in the press. let it sit for about four minutes then press away. I like it because I can make mine strong and the wife can make hers the way she likes it.

Well around here (in Ontario, Canada) at any liquor stores.
