Caffeine Trivia 12.02.14

THE PERCOLATOR METHOD: The coffee percolator was a civilising influence in the American wild west; it was certainly widely used throughout the USA, where, until the recent coffee ‘revolution’, it was a standard piece of equipment in most homes. The percolator heats the coarsely ground coffee and cold water so that, as it boils and bubbles up into the top of the unit, creating an appealing gurgling sound and wafting the aroma of coffee through the home.  Unfortunately during this process all the wonderful volatile flavours are lost to the ether.
