My Story:

Coffee is a staple for a large number of people. I was not one of those people until my late 20’s. I fought it as long as I could as i never wanted to be part of the coffee crowds. I made it through nearly 6 years in the military without taking up the habit. My career with DOC finally broke my streak and I began to drink coffee as night shift demanded it. Coffee is also a huge part of outdoor adventure and my non coffee drinking days made me somewhat of a black sheep in my hunting camps and backpacking trips. Well those days are over!

For me, elk camp is typically a great testing time. It is the last big camping trip of the year and by the time it rolls around I am typically filled up with testing samples. GSI Outdoors had me well equipped this year and as I was testing out a couple new products from GSI Outdoors and others so it was only natural that I would have to test out a percolator.     

During camp it is not uncommon for people to roll in and out at all times of the day. Some are friends and family and others are strangers just popping in to say hello and check how everything is going. With as much traffic as camp can get it’s always a good idea to have a steady flow of coffee ready. In the past this might look like a few stoves set up with several coffee pots on them. Lucky for our 2019 camp I brought out the big guns and had the GSI Outdoors Glacier 28 Cup Percolator. The camp was pretty excited when I pulled out this awesome looking coffee pot.

The coffee was pre-loaded and set on the stove for the morning. With the sky still black and the morning crisp it was nice to see the fire from the stove radiating off the shiny stainless steel. The Glacier 28 Cup Percolator is a big boy and it takes a while for the water to heat up. Once it begins to perc the glass window at the top shows signs of black gold bubbling.

The Glacier Stainless 28 Cup Perc has a great handle that stays cool and the top handle makes pouring coffee from this beast a simple task.

Stainless steel is beautiful and easy to keep clean.  This coffee pot functions perfectly and makes a phenomenal cup of Joe. It is a great addition to any large camp or home and I think that you will be more than pleased with it.
