When choosing cookware for camping – percolators included – you must make sure the items are small enough to fit into a backpack and that they are easy to carry. However, if you’re mostly car camping and don’t plan to walk too far from your campsite, investing in a large percolator will give you the possibility to brew more coffee at once.
In terms of capacity, camping percolators come in various sizes between four cups, such as the Stanley Adventure, and 14 cups, such as the Coletti.
Again, consider your camping style but also the number of persons you want to brew coffee at the same time. Some of the best camping percolators come with hook bails that also allow you to hang them in your backpack. In this way, they won’t take up any space inside your bag and will provide plenty of capacity for a larger gang.
