3 Cup Pantone Percolator
A beautiful stovetop percolator that makes beautiful coffee - if you're a stovetop coffee fan, this is the pot for you. This classic stovetop espresso maker is made from high-quality aluminium with a coating of glossy Pantone colour, and the coffee it produces is thick and rich, perfect for a milk coffee base or as an espresso.
This one makes three cups, which is to say, three espresso-style shots and we also have a six-cup model if that's more your style. The 3-Cup Coffee Pot is available in Pantone 2294, Apple Green and Pantone 215, Hot Pink.
For a perfect stovetop espresso, we recommend using freshly-ground coffee (check our Single Origin listing for what's in season) and fresh, clean, cold water. We recommend brewing your espresso on low heat until you can hear it beginning to bubble through, then opening the lid of the pot (to prevent condensation from diluting the brew) and finally removing it from heat once the coffee brewing begins to look watery. Try not to let it boil.
To care for your percolator, avoid cleaning it with detergent (unless it has been out of use for a while) as the detergent will strip the coffee oils from the device and leave your coffee tasting a little metallic. Avoid scourers or harsh abrasives completely. Before using it for the first time, give it a practice-run to ensure all traces of processing residue have been cleared out. Lastly, make sure you let your percolator dry completely before reassembling it.
Please note, this style of brewer is not suitable for use with induction heat unless you have a stand or adaptor that will conduct the heat through it.
