For the longest time, I have wanted to try out a percolator. I remember growing up we would go to this Italian restaurant that had the BEST percolated coffee. You could just smell the good coffee in the restaurant when it was being made. So when I had the chance to review this percolator by Capresso, I couldn't wait to tell you about it.

Let me tell you that if you are a coffee lover, or know one, this is an excellent site to visit to get some great coffee gift ideas. Like, really. They offer EVERYTHING you need for your coffee fix from grinders, to espresso machines, to milk frothers, to coffee makers. And it's awesome quality stuff.

So when I set up the percolator, it was a bit of a process of figuring out what was best for me. My tip is - more coffee, less water. I tried to go by the suggestion by ended up with pretty weak coffee. I like really strong coffee, actually. So I chose ground well dark roast coffee and made sure to fill it as much as I could (but left a little room at the top) and filled it up to ten cups of water.

THAT made good coffee. I really enjoyed this so much and it is such a special experience to make this type of coffee. It's rich, actually. It's a different taste than when you use an espresso machine or drip coffee.

If you have been looking for a percolator, you can purchase this 12 cup percolator by Capresso by visiting this link. It's available right now for $69.99.


The other item I reviewed was this Ceramic Burr Grinder. Oh my goodness I love this thing! For a long time I would just use this smaller kind and do just two batches of coffee with the grinder .So this one, you fill the top lid with coffee beans and grind it up. You pull out the container and voila - coffee! It's a great to me, because I can just fill the beans up and press the button and walk away while it grinds up. It only stops when the container it fills into reaches the top. My only tiny complaint is that is a tad messy when you take off the lid, but not that much. My favorite feature is that you only have to do ONE round of grinding (I usually make a full 12 cups of coffee).

If you are interested in this grinder, make sure you visit this link and purchase it now for $59.99.

Capresso offers so much for the coffee lover and I highly recommend that you take a look at all of their amazing items and consider their stuff for a holiday gift! Like them on Facebook for updates and Twitter as well.
