Several weeks ago our electric perk coffee pot died; this is how we made coffee.
Well, my husband lives for his morning coffee, me, I can drink instant with no problem! I always put flavored creamer in mine so doesn't matter to me. He drinks his black and strong.
He got up to get his first cup of coffee and found that the coffee pot wasn't working and no way to fix it. He took the basket with the ground coffee in it and put it in a pan of water. This is the process.
Water is starting to simmer and steam soon it was perking up the tube in the basket; I didn't know you could make coffee like this.......but then I am not that much of a coffee drinker.
I am sure that there is a better way to do this, like time it and such but after a few minutes the coffee in the pan was getting darker and stronger!
If you click on the picture you can see the bubble of coffee coming out of the tube and perking away. This coffee was pretty strong, I didn't try it.........ugh......but he said it wasn't too bad!
I'd rather drink orange juice for breakfast!!
We have since gotten a Mister Coffee maker but he is still looking for a part to fix the perk coffee maker. Why??? Just because he can! (sigh)me, I'd rather do problem solving with the horse! :-)
