   Coffee Percolator

The traditional domestic coffee machine or Cofee Maker for cooking coffee is called a percolator and is made of metal and sits directly on the source of heat. Ground coffee is placed in a small internal basket sitting on a funnel boiling water is forced through this repeatedly and soaks the coffee, thus producing an extract which becomes more concentrated as the coffee brewed. There are several types of percolators:

         Drip Maker

The most widely used coffee pot , works by placing coffee in a filter and placing it inside of the container which holds water. The water is heated and pumped through the coffee where it then drips into the pot below. Water temperature is controlled
internally to maintain a temperature just below boiling. Boiling coffee tends to produce a bitter taste which is undesirable to most people. These drip pots come with many features which include clocks, alarms, and delayed timers. Most offer the benefit of setting the timer to go off about the time you usually get up in the morning. It is very pleasing to wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee.

Vacuum coffee

Many people still enjoy the tradition of vacuum coffee pots because the pots offer interesting shapes and designs. An early variation of this principle is called a balance siphon. This implementation has the two chambers arranged side by side on a balance-like device, with a counterweight attached to the heated chamber These pots work on the theory that steam creates a vacuum which draws the water and steam through the coffee grounds without distributing the grounds throughout the coffee.  most of the coffee grounds will be filtered out , although some may remain in the water. The process is similar to the percolator with the exception of the repeated pumping action required of the percolator.

French press

A French press, or a press pot, coffee press, coffee plunger , is a coffee brewing device popularized by the French. Its operation is simple and it produces a stronger coffee than other devices.
A French press consists of a narrow cylindrical jug usually made of glass or clear plastic, equipped with a lid and a "plunger", made of metal or plastic, which fits tightly in the cylinder and which has a fine wire or nylon mesh acting as a filter. Coffee is brewed by placing the coffee and water together, leaving to brew for a few minutes, then depressing the plunger to trap the coffee grinds at the bottom of the jug.

Drip brew

By pouring water over roasted, ground coffee beans contained in a filter. Water seeps through the coffee, absorbing its oils and essences, solely under gravity, then passes through the bottom of the filter. The used coffee grounds are retained in the filter with the liquid falling / dripping into a collecting vessel such as a carafe or pot. Brewing with a paper filter produces clear, light-bodied coffee, which is free of sediments, but lacking in some of coffee's oils and essences, which are trapped in the paper filter.
