How to Make Coffee the Old-Fashioned Way

Making coffee the old-fashioned way is a great way to bring old-world charm and flavor to your cup. If you are looking to create an authentic 1950s coffee experience, this is the method you are looking for. Here are the steps to making coffee with your old-fashioned coffee percolator:

Preparing the Coffee Grounds

  1. Grind your coffee – You’ll need to grind your coffee beans fresh for the best taste. You’ll want to use a medium-coarse grind for the optimal flavor and extraction.
  2. Measure the coffee grounds – For an old-school pot of coffee, you will want about 3 tablespoons for every 1 cup of cold water.
  3. Set aside the grounds – Once all the grounds have been measured and placed, you should set them aside for use in the next step.

Brewing the Coffee

  1. Place the grounds in the percolator – Place the prepared grounds in the percolator. Be sure to spread them evenly and press them tightly into the basket.
  2. Add the water – Fill the chamber of the percolator with cold water and then carefully arrange the plunger.
  3. Start the percolator – Place the percolator over a medium-low flame and listen for the hissing. As the water gets hotter, the percolator will start to perc (hiss) as the water rises and bubbles through the grounds.
  4. Remove the percolator from heat – Once the percolator bubbles steadily, remove it from heat and wait for the perking cycle to complete.

Enjoying your Freshly-Brewed Coffee

Your coffee should now be ready to serve. For best results, pour the coffee into an insulated carafe or cup to keep it warm and enjoy it right away. With this method, you can enjoy amazingly flavorful coffee every time!
