Great home style coffee on the trail. This classic style percolator tends to brew stronger coffee than drip machines. Coarsely grinding a  light or medium roast coffee will give you the best results.

Percolators like the Stansport offer complete control over your brewing process. Adjusting your coffee-water ratio, brewing heat, and time percolating allows you to adjust your coffee experience to your tastes.

Due to the weight, the Stansport Percolator is more suited to base camping four wheeling.   Lifting the two piece percolator insert out leaves you with a standard boiling pot with pouring spout.

Features

  • Made of durable, rustproof, high gloss polished aluminum
  • Percolator stem and basket included
  • Comes with top and side handles
  • Easy pour spout
  • Aluminum construction heats quickly

What do owners say?

Reviewing the comments on this product shows most people are very happy. Some reviewers were questioning the aluminum construction, but most were happy with the strength and quality.

Filtering the coffee is advised by some reviews. Paper filters can be used but many people commenting said the amount of grounds passed through was minimal.

Scrubbing the outside with regular detergent and a plastic scouring pad is enough to keep the pot shiny and clean

Is the Stansport Percolator for you?

I recommended this for campers less concerned with weight that are wanting a percolated (not pressed) coffee
