MONEY can’t buy you love. But it can buy you a percolator full of coffee and that’s darn close enough.

    I have been a vintage-percolator enthusiast for several years now. I have 2 Universal Coffeematic models from 1956, which look like they just came off the assembly line yesterday. The styling and build quality are far superior to most makers on the market today.

    The Coffeematics automatically shift over to the “warm” cycle after brewing, where it holds the coffee at a perfect (for me) 172 degrees F, without degrading the coffee.

    That happy perking sound, and the aroma that permeates the house, add to the enjoyment of the coffee experience.

    “Retro-Perk” RULES ! 🙂

    You can find them on eBay all the time….just type “Universal Coffeematic” into the searchbox. Most are fairly reasonably-priced, I would spend a few extra bucks and get one of the nicer ones….
    there`s a seller named “doug`sperks” who has about the nicest ones around.

    Happy Hunting ! 🙂
