Firm believer in that stuff. We don’t actually do any thinking, you know. We just watch while the brain works, and think it’s us.
The moka pot in your top picture is no percolator, by the way. It operates by boiling water under pressure to create steam, which forces the near-boiling water beneath up through the coffee grounds and into the top container, from where it can be poured out. Absolutely vital to remove the pot from the heat, otherwise the last extraction is with steam, and then the coffee begins to boil, ruining it.
Simple process, and easy to use, but requires maintenance to operate safely.
