Mama said that I need not be smart.

She said that I just need to know who IS smart.

A NASA Rocket Scientist, who also is a robotics specialist, and a computer programer, did a study on how to make the best coffee, using a stove top percolator. Results showed that the percolator should " bubble " about every 1.52 seconds, until the yield was opaque.

In a taste test, and time efficiency trial...it was unanimously agreed upon to abandon the consumption of coffee altogether…and just make Bloody Marys.

Later in a follow up study, it was determined that there was hardly any truth to the rumor that I was a jacka$$. So there you have it.

Thanks. The one on the right looks like an older version of the Bialetti Moka Express Stovetop Espresso Coffee Maker. I say older version because the newer ones have a pressure release value. It makes excellent coffee. The one I have only makes enough for one cup so I went and purchased the Espro 32 oz French Press. It is just right for making two large mugs.

We travel enough bumpy roads that we don't take anything glass-- except for 4 stemless crystal wine glasses that are extremely well packed and protected.

We use a stovetop drip coffee system, involving an insulated "thermos" type steel coffee pot that holds about 5 mugs, a plastic cone for #4 paper filters, and a stovetop tea kettle to boil water. Unfortunately our standby plastic cone bounced on the floor a few too many times and proved really difficult to replace. However, a trip to REI solved the problem: they sell a sort of collapsible rubber cone that compresses into a flat disc and doesn't break.

We just don't have the space for a normal electric coffee maker, and too often boondock without the capacity to run an electrical appliance.

The old ones also have the relief valves. It is on the other side, not showing. Interesting part is that they have changed very little. Parts are still available and easy to find. The gaskets have to be replaced every few years and mine is on its third handle.
