The secret is that as soon as the coffee is brewed it automatically stops further boiling so the coffee is not continually recirculated (which causes the bitter taste), and then it maintains the coffee at a constant perfect temperature.
So if you are in the study reading or doing a crossword in the conservatory or lounge and you are ready for a refill, just lift the percolator from its base and pour.
And being cordless as well, it is easily transportable and can be put on the breakfast or dining table for convenience.
With a 3pt capacity (4-12 cups) that's lots of fresh refills, and with its mirrored stainless steel finish and heat resistant handle it is practical and stylish too.
