NEW, just arrived, these are a high quality stainless steel coffee percolator.. will brew 4-6 cups (900 ml) .. use on gas, or directly on the snow peak fire pit… 115 mm x 190 mm , 800 grams..
now i don’t know a heap about percolating coffee, but a mate of mine, James Mandy from WA, is an expert : ) … so i’ve asked him to do a write up for me, and he’s also done a video, showing perfectly how it works.. his blog is linked below, which has a great write up, and these are some of his photos also.. if anyone has a question about brewing/ grinding coffee in the bush or when camping, then you can contact James thru his online blog… (linked below..)
To brew coffee for 4-6 people:
Fill the percolator with water to just above the lower-spout on the inside.
Insert the Stem and coffee grinds tray.
Grind up around 12gm of coffee per cup (or one large scoop). In this case, 50gm of coffee is ideal for four cups Fit the perforated shower screen over the coffee on the stem.
Place lid on the percolator and sit it on the fire pit grill or in the coals After 8-10 minutes, the water will start to ‘perc’ (pour up out of the spout). You will see it in the glass viewing lid.
Let it perc for around five minutes or until the desired coffee ‘colour’ is sighted in the glass viewing lid.
Remove from fire / gas and set aside for a few minutes to let the grinds settle to the bottom. I like to rest it on the Snow Peak fire-pit base-plate which I always have setup next to the pit when camping.
Remove entire inside (stem and coffee basket) and set aside.
Pour coffee gently into cups. Snow Peak double-wall Ti mugs recommended to keep the brew warm
Wash up with water, dry, and pack away into the Snow Peak mesh bag.
