Is this man preparing coffee in a way coffee snobs don’t like?

Well he's using Folgers, so I highly doubt that's the best coffee I'll ever have.

My MIL told me about sitting up with family when someone was dying, in a home, I think. She remembered them making this type of coffee and people drinking it all night long. I had the impression she was remembering an early experience with a sort of fondness.

At any rate, boiling coffee, especially good coffee, sounds barbaric.

If someone else made the stuff, I’d taste it though.

I worked for an outfitter in hunting camps and thats how we did it.bringing it to a boil is not the same as burning it.never had any complaints.

I would guess this was the typical way coffee was prepared in the US before electric percolators and automatic drip machines.

Yes, that's what I imagine too.

This is how all the "old folks" in my family did it. But some of them were so frugal that they just kept the grounds in the pot and added a little every day. On Sunday they'd finally start a fresh pot. You didn't want to visit my Aunt Lottie on a Saturday.

That was coffee that would "grow hair on your chest" as my dad would say, laughing.

All the churches served egg coffee which, while it doesn't sound very good, is actually a nice, clear cup of coffee. I make it sometimes when I have family company and still have the large enameled pot like in the video. I don't know what in the world has happened to the inside of that pot but if I were him I'd check to make sure the base metal isn't toxic.

I'd also beware of that rolling boil he's got going there. To both boil it at a rolling boil and to steep it would make it pretty bitter, I think. Just needs to be brought to a gentle boil.

I have to joke here - if it's so darned good how come he pours it on the ground?

Lol at cowboy coffee. My mom used to make this when I was a kid. In fact everyone I knew made coffee in such manner along with espresso machines.
We also make coffee basically like this when we go camping.
