Went with a Farberware Classic Stainless Steel Percolator. Enjoyed fresh brewed coffee in Swan Creek last Sunday morning and it was not bitter. If I decide I don't like perked coffee I'll throw away the guts and use it like a tea kettle so I can make coffee with a french press. Agree with Jaye though, takes a lot of water to clean the press.
Thanks for all the suggestions...MGM
