Kickstarter: Perk Brings The Percolator To The Modern Age

Kickstarter: Perk Brings The Percolator To The Modern Age

, the PERK (whose video was filmed at Iconik Coffee in Santa Fe, featured here on Sprudge) relies upon the fundamental mechanics of a percolator—heated water that gets circulated over a bed of coffee grounds—but with a modernized approach to controllability. Normal percolators rely on near boiling (if not boiling) water to circulate over the coffee, which can lead to over-extraction. The PERK uses a pump to move the water over the grounds, affording the brewer the ability to regulate and control the temperature. And the PERK also has a programmable timer that shuts off the pump at the designated time, ending the extraction. It is a pretty vast improvement on a regular percolator that requires you to pull the device off/shut off the heating element, which will still brew until the water temperature has naturally decreased.
