The group of people I boat with use a percolator to brew coffee. I've been doing a little research before purchasing one and have become overwhelmed by how many there are to choose from. I know I want something stainless steel and with a glass top. What kind of perc are you using? Thanks.

Use an aeropress for the best coffee around. Doesn't make huge batches like the percolator, but can make batch after batch real quick.

I like cowboy coffee when cooking for a big group. My partner steel unit is the go to coffee maker when we have a full permit on a trip.

Having said that my coffee maker of choice for three or four people is my stainless steel bodum coffee press. If this thing had been available during the cowboy era, I bet even the most hard core wranglers would enjoy a cuppa joe from the SS Press.

I have a stainless steel perk, but since buying the bodum unit, the perk is only used to heat water for the press or any chocolate or tea drinkers in the group.

over the years i've seen and drank coffee made a whole lot of ways including percs.

the one thing i've noticed about percs is the little glass top has tendency to get lost.
if that's the way you're going to go, whichever one you buy, check to make sure that those tops are readily available.

that would be my two cents worth on percs.

Another vote from me for the french press.

We use the GSI brand percolator. Not too spendy,easy to find, and works grew. We've never lost the glass part, but have had someone dump the whole "guts" in the river once. He never heard the end of it for the rest of the trip.
