Capresso Perk Review

Capresso PerkYou guys know that I’m a massive coffee lover. I drink a cup every morning and then a few more during the day depending on how long my day is. I don’t think there’s anything better than having a good cup of coffee from A Good 4 Cup Coffee Maker, first thing in the morning. And I don’t like just any nstant coffee, I like high-quality products that taste amazing. This is why Capresso is my go-to coffee and tea machine company. They always hit the mark with each product they release. My current favorite is their Capresso 12-Cup Perk. This is a coffee maker that percolates your coffee to release deep, rich flavors.

The Capresso Perk is a full-sized, 12-cup coffee maker and is just what every home needs. I dislike the loss of my counter space. I have limited room in my modest kitchen and need to really take advantage of minimalist-like tactics. The Capresso Perk is perfect for smaller kitchens. You can make you coffee in the Perk anywhere in your home and easily store it away in a cupboard or under a counter when not in use. When brewing it needs to stay still, kept on a flat surface, and remained plugged in. It also needs to remain plugged in when you want to keep the machine on and the coffee warm.

My favorite feature of this machine is the clear top, which allows you to see the coffee being peculated! Watching it splash and move around inside the lid is fun and lets you know that its almost time to get your caffeine on! The biggest tip I have for this machine is to wet the coffee grind basket before you put in your ground beans. This will help keep them from falling through the filter and getting into the water/coffee storage area. Another tip, when filling the filter basket with the coffee grinds, place you finger over the perk tube. This will help to stop grinds getting into your water/coffee.

Using Capresso Perk

I love how easy this machine is to use. How I don’t have to leave it on my counter all the time. I can bring it to a party or event and make coffee on-to-go with such ease. Now when people want coffee at a party hall we rent I don’t have to make a trip to a donut shop for a box of coffee or pack up a big table top coffee maker.

    Wow–this brings back wonderful memories! I learned to drink coffee at my old school Louisiana grandmother’s table—she always used a percolator.

    I haven’t had a peculator in years so this is so cool. Glad it’s smaller and has a clear top. We love coffee and I’ve never had a espresso.

    I would love this coffee maker! Like you mentioned in your review that it takes up a small amount of space, and I can relate to that being a huge plus because I have a small condo sized kitchen!

    I remember getting my parents coffee ready in the morning before I went to school. This was way back in the day! I just loved the smell of coffee brewing, although I was way too young to drink it. I did not start drinking coffee until my late 40’s and now I love it. Percolators are the best for coffee brewing, aside from a coffee press. This on would be fun to watch with the top and hearing it percolate would just be cool! Great review!

    I love perked coffee. I used to buy another brand perculator but the engines kept burning out so we switched to drip. I have to remember Capresso next time we need a pot.

    I great tip to wet the coffee grind basket before you put in your ground beans. I will have to remember that if i win this!

    I love how you can make it on the spot rather than grabbing it from a coffee shop and it not being as fresh!

    A tip I will have to remember if i win this would be when filling the filter basket with the coffee grinds, place you finger over the perk tube. You had mentioned it will help to stop grinds getting into your water/coffee, which obviously makes the coffee better, so thanks for sharing!

    Oh, my! I haven’t had a percolator since 1985. I guess I fell hard for the drip coffee makers so popular for so long. I’d like to go back to a perk. It’s much more my style than a French press.
