Subject: RE: BS: How do you perc 1/2 pot of coffee?
I do it the Bosnian way. Use a conical copper pot with a long handle. Add coffee and about 2/3 of the water (quickest if it's boiling), put it on the heat (gas or electric both work), whip it off once it boils up, sprinkle the rest of the water over the top to wash the grounds down. Wait a minute for the grounds to settle properly and pour out slowly without shaking the pot. This scales to any quantity, but it ONLY works with very finely ground coffee. Coarse grounds (as from percolator coffee) float and the result is a disgusting cupful of grit.
