2 Thermos vacuum dispensers $5 each
2 IKEA chairs with ottomans and cushions $150 ea
Necchi Sewing Machine, new, in box $150
Coffee and Spice Mill/Grinder $5
2 sets of T-fal cookware $35 each
Set of 2 Walkie-Talkies $10
King mattress pad $20

As we get closer to leaving, we'll have stuff that we use everyday like the coffeemaker, etc.

The percolator is brand new. We brought it down for someone who didn't take it.

I remember my Mother saying the same thing about a percolator...that it made much better coffee than the "drips" we now use. And in my mind I can still hear it...

Percolating is a very mean thing to do to a good coffee bean! (IMO) wink

Yep - Coffee only keeps for 15 to 20 minutes before beginning to lose its flavor.

Why you should never percolate coffee:
Percolators violate most of the natural laws about brewing coffee.

Don't over extract the oils and flavor. Percolators work by taking coffee and reheating it and throwing it over the grounds over and over and over again.

Never reheat/boil coffee. This destroys the flavor. For best flavor, boil the water, pass it over the grounds and retain the heat. Don't reheat it.

Violating these rules may not sound like much, but these are about the only rules there are. The effect of a percolator is to keep passing boiling water/coffee over the grounds until there is no flavor left.
