How Long to Percolate a Glass Coffee Pot?
Brewing a tasty cup of coffee with a glass percolator is a great way to make a good, strong cup of joe. Brewing time varies, depending on the intensity of flavor desired, the amount of coffee being brewed, and the heat source used.
Percolating Roasted Coffee Beans
Generally, when using a glass percolator on an electric burner, it will take 8 to 10 minutes to brew a full pot of coffee. For a smaller amount, it will take around 5 minutes. The brewing time will increase however, if the electric burner is set to a low wattage.
Instructions for Percolating Coffee
Here are the instructions for brewing the perfect cup of coffee with a glass percolator:
- Choose your beans: Select your beans and grind them to a medium-coarse grind.
- Add your grounds: Pour the grounds into the percolator basket and level it off.
- Fill up with water: Fill the percolator up with cold water, but not to the top of the basket.
- Heat the water: Place the percolator onto the burner heat source and turn it onto high for 8 to 10 minutes.
Finishing Up the Brewing Process
Once the brewing process is done, the coffee will be ready. To ensure a great cup of coffee, it is best to let the coffee sit for 1-2 minutes to allow the grounds to settle. After this time, your percolated glass coffee pot should be ready to drink. Enjoy!
