The Best Way to make coffee:
GSI Outdoors Percolators, first fill the percolator basket with coarse ground coffee being careful to avoid overfilling or packing your grounds into the metal basket. Typically, a very smooth, low acid roast is the best choice for percolating due to the inevitable tendency of a percolator to boil your brew. Again, you should follow the 2 tbsp. coarse ground coffee to 6 fl. oz. of water ratio. Add the correct amount of water and reassemble the percolator. Do not overfill the pot as the water level must be below the level of the basket. Heat the percolator over high heat until coffee is seen perking in the clear knob. At this point, you should watch very carefully and remove your coffee from the heat as soon as the coffee stops perking. Do not allow the coffee to perk for more than 3 minutes. Once the coffee has brewed, pour your coffee into a separate, insulated container like a GSI Outdoors vacuum bottle to halt the brewing process and prevent heat loss. If you wish to dilute the strength of your coffee, add hot water after it has already finished brewing.
WARNING: Do no overfill percolator. Do not allow percolator to dry boil. If percolator overflows, turn stove off and allow percolator and its contents to cool before handling. Brewed coffee and grounds may be very hot. Handle with care. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Do not touch hot surfaces.
CAUTION: Always allow unit to cool before cleaning or disassembling. Should a component become crazed or fractured, please recycle the pieces.
DANGER: NEVER OPEN LID OR REMOVE PERCVIEW TOP WHILE HEATING. Do not attempt to rapidly cool percolator. Always respect fire and all other hot substances.
