Topic: Revere Ware 1801 Copper Clad SS Dripolator? (11 msgs / 165 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Folks,
My wife just walked in the door with one of these ... a gift that my
mother-in-law bought for me for no other reason than I love coffee and older
things associated with coffee!  I love this thing, but I don't know anything
about it.  Can anyone enlighten me?
Respectfully,
Eddie

My wife has called me a dripolater often, but I doubt we're referring to 
the same thing.  Sorry.

Hi Eddie,
Easy...  Two parts - Upper caraffe and Lower Caraffe, right?  In the Upper
Caraffe, is there a "removable piece" that could cover some ground coffee?
You put ground coffee in the upper bowl, cover with the thingamajig (if it
has one).
Then you boil water in the lower caraffe - equal to the amount of coffee you
want to brew...
Once it boils, pour the water into the upper bowl, then set the whole upper
set atop the lower bowl, an dput the cap on...
Coffee will drip through into the lower bowl.
This is when I then pour cups, and the rest into a Stainless Steel thermos I
got for my birthday...
Mine is the "West Bend" Kwik-Drip...  Same principle...  Takes me about
10-15 minutes for the coffee to drip through.  Makes INCREDIBLE coffee...

Brett,
That is precisely the one I got!
Any idea on how much coffee and what kind of grind?
Thank you so much ... I would like to try this thing this weekend, but I am
low on roasted coffee ...
Thanks again.

Hi Eddie,
Measure the volume of water in the lower caraffe first.  If it is 12 cups
(60oz) then you'll need to figure coffee appropriately - i.e.  The proper *
ratio* of *coffee to water* is 7.25 grams per 5 ounces of *water* or about
one heaping tablespoon per. 5 ounces - found appropriately from www.gimme*
coffee*.com/pdf/gimmeBrewing.pdf ...
I tried to find and cite the quantities from sweetmaria's, and am pretty
sure it's here, but I missed it...
Hope this helps,
Brett

At some point between French and fire, it really doesn't matter much
what the "origin character" of the coffee was...

Brewed Brazil Cachoeira Yellow Bourbon roasted to Full City+ (first audible
snaps of 2nd crack) and rested almost 6 days :
First attempt, ground the coffee too fine and it stalled, BUT the coffee
that it did brew was intense just like I would expect from the KMB.  Very
good.
Second attempt, perfection!  Brett, you were right, this makes INCREDIBLE
coffee ... a rich, full-bodied explosion of flavor!  So much chocolate!
I LOVE IT ... THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE!
Thanks for the help ...

I'm betting that Scott's polyester would work great in this coffee brewer
...
