When it comes to my obsessive personality, I can be a little scared, but I can also stand back and laugh. I love really good radios, watches . . . and now vintage coffee percolators, the all stainless steel kind with pot bellies, swan neck spouts. Old school. The brands that have caught my attention are Universal, GE, Sears, and Sunbeam. I bought two, a GE Immersible and a Sunbeam, on eBay.
I love this blog post about cleaning your coffee percolator.
Here's a Coffee Detective post venerating the vintage percolator. The writer claims that the new Made in China ones are junk. Reminds me of my vintage radio love.
Here's a rhapsody to the GE coffee percolator.
Currently, I have a Bodum French Press, nice but I'm not wild about the coffee flavor. I also have a Bonavita 1900 drip coffee maker. It makes good tasting coffee, but I don't like all the plastic parts.
I'm eager to try going vintage. Also, I love the classic look of an all stainless vintage coffee percolator.
