Wow, i had forgotten about those. It's been many a year since I've seen the one i used to use. I remember it worked pretty well. Wonder what happened to it?

To be honest, a better description might be a batch brewing paper filter cone.

Coffee is meant to be served hot. That's why I like the percolator. With drip makers the coffee comes out cold to me.

The downside with a perc is that it is technically "burning" the coffee a little bit - that 's just the physics of it. So it works well with Folgers, Gevalia, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks. I won't use coffee in a percolator that costs more than $8 per pound. Just punch a hole in a normal basket coffee filter & put that in the basked before the grounds if you want it to be less bitter. I never buy those round "percolator" filters that cost 3x as much.

I'll use pour-over if I really want a gourmet experience and/or have expensive coffee.

Peculator. (We have a percolator, drip maker, Keurig and French Press here - but my favorite is the Percolator.)
Stronger, darker flavor...hotter also.

I have one of those Mr Coffee look alikes (can't find the name on it) that is on it's last beat up look.....5 cuper.

I have started to pour a cup back over the coffee filter and get a better/stronger taste of the coffee....even my girlfriend mentioned the coffee tasted better having the water go over again like a 2nd rinse.

Debating on getting a new unit...similar size as I'm generally a two cup person at most.

Percolators are just about the worst way to brew coffee -- unless you like a bitter, astringent cup in the morning. The science about percolators has been in for decades now.

We use a French press for most applications (except Turkish coffee, which is just a brass pot on the stove); and one of these for everything else:
