National Coffee Percolator Day!

What does this holiday celebrate?
Hey it's not used much anymore but this day celebrates the percolator that's used for making coffee. Do you have an old one tucked away in your kitchen cabinet? I know I sure do. Even though not to many households use them anymore, we still find a use for the pot. Did you know that many cooks use the smaller size pots to hold kitchen grease in??? Wow! So don't toss out that old percolator. If your not going to use it for what it's meant to be used for, then use it for oil or bacon grease. Many people save them and use them for coffee while camping. I actually have a nice plant planted in one of my old ones that's sitting by the window. I love the look of a percolator. Pam Svoboda

What is a coffee percolator?
A coffee percolator (caffettiera in Italian) it is a type of pot used to brew coffee. The name stems from the word "percolate" which means to cause (a solvent) to pass through a permeable substance especially for extracting a soluble constituent . In the case of coffee-brewing the solvent is water, the solute is coffee grounds and the soluble constituent is, of course, the liquid coffee which we drink. There are two basic types of percolator:

One which forces boiling water under pressure through the grounds into a separate chamber-
One which continually cycles the boiling brew through the grounds using gravity until the required strength is reached.

Coffee percolators once enjoyed great popularity but were supplanted in the early 1970s by automatic drip coffee makers, and more recently by the French press, as well as a renewed interest in espresso coffee. Percolators often expose the grounds to higher temperatures than other brewing methods, and may recirculate already brewed coffee through the beans. As a result, coffee brewed with a percolator is susceptible to over-extraction. In addition, percolation may remove some of the volatile compounds in the beans. This results in a pleasant aroma during brewing, but a less flavourful cup. However, percolator enthusiasts praise the percolator's hotter, more 'robust' coffee, and maintain that the potential pitfalls of this brewing method can be eliminated by careful control of the brewing process.

Origin of this Holiday
I wonder why the month of December was picked to celebrate this holiday and why the 26th day??  That's the question, but unfortunately...

our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.
So have fun with it and celebrate it!

Do you know what is ate with coffee more than anything else?
Well we do! Research tells us that it's doughnuts & coffee cake!
