Never owned a percolator type maker before but this is a nifty little unit which works well on any heat source while out camping. I don't know what sized cups others use but I find it gives a two mug brew. Now if only I could learn how to make a decent tasting coffee I'll be happier.
This percolator is compact, perfect for home or camping use, gives 4-5 cups as stated or 3 huge mugs and makes great coffee. Arrived promptly. The knob had inadvertently broken but on contacting Snowy's they immediately replaced it, great personal customer service, so I am very happy and will buy from Snowys again.
I know that sounds like a dumb Q given it says "5 cup" but sometimes coffee makers say 5 cup and it's referring to small cups. What is the volume in Mls it holds?
Great question - the Campfire Coffee Percolator holds about 1.25L of water.
Does this coffee maker require paper filters or anything else to make the coffee other than ground coffee in the basket?
I've had a look at the product, and it doesn't mention using filters so you shouldn't need them as far as we know - just the ground coffee.
How is this different to a stove-top coffee maker? Does it work with butane burner or just LPG burner?
The Campfire Coffee Perculator isn’t any different (in how it works) to a stove top coffee maker- and you can definitely use it with butane or LPG burner outdoor stoves - just not on an open fire because of the handle.
Do you sell any coffee grinders ?
Hi Simon, unfortunately we do not sell coffee grinders at this current time. I’ve got my tape measure out and this percolator (including the spout and handle) is 20cm in diameter, 13cm in width and 18cm in height. It weighs 0.64g without the box. Thanks for your question Simon, now we know our website is lacking those specs so I’ll update those details to make it clearer for everyone else.
