So we don’t really use the percolator much since getting a press. We’ll fire it up when we have guests and need to make more than 3 cups at a time. Today, after my 3rd trip to the microwave to heat my coffee (kids are time consuming), I decided plug in the perc.
Turns out, the last time I used it, maybe 3 or 4 weeks ago, I failed to clean it out. This is not a first. I scrubbed it down as best I could and then went looking for the vinegar. The little tube that runs up the middle is hard to get a sponge into. Alas, no vinegar to be found, and I’m sure as hell not going to use my beloved stop bath to clean a coffee pot. A couple drops of dish soap later and it’s plugged in and percing away. That’s when the fun started.
It really was one hell of a show, and I suppose the counter needed a cleaning anyway. In my panic to unplug it and dump it out I forgot to take a picture. Maybe next time.
I finally got to make a pot of coff-ay. Anyone wanna try my new Folgers-Palmolive blend?
