Pacanis this reminded me of an old man in South Louisiana, my brother's FIL.
He made coffee before dawn every morning in an old stove top percolator. He filled it with water and threw in a couple hands full of coffee and boiled it. After he had his morning coffee he rode to the pasture to check on his cows. Back home he fired up the pot again. Mid-morning, after lunch, mid afternoon, and after supper..each time boiling the coffee again. During one hunting or fishing trip, and after supper one night, he fired up the coffee one more time...Then it hit me!!! I finally figured out what Demitasse coffee cups were made for.
It was one powerful brew. He lived well into his 90's.
