Oh coppertop pot
Brew your magic elixir
Fill my goblet now
The coffeepot belonged to my Mother-In-law; this was how coffee was made in the olden days.
Fill water to the top line of the coffeepot, (that will make 8 to 10 cups of coffee). Spoon in 8 to 10 tablespoons of coffee. I filled it to the top line that is indicated on the basket, place the basket onto the stem which is actually the percolator, cover the basket with the basket cover, called the coffee spreader, cover the coffee pot (my pot has a copper top) J
Place on stove bring heat to medium high to high and wait for water to boil, once the water boils the percolator starts to do its job – allow to percolate for 7 ½ minutes - take off heat and let it rest and settle for a minute.
Pour in cup add sweetener of choice, and any dairy product – for me I like almond milk, or add nothing and enjoy it as it is made.
Mangia, Mangia…No Talk!
