There you go. The percolator I bought 5-6 years ago for about $25 is going strong and makes really good tasting coffee.
I worked at multiple coffee shops and I've tried just about every system out there.
You do get more of the oils from coffee with a percolator so if your stomach is sensitive that may be a good reason to avoid. But it also means the coffee tastes better...to me.
I'll take the better taste and not replacing a drip maker every 6-12 months.
