Best Coffee for a Percolator?

NoFixedAddress | Feb 16, 200908:11 AM

I just purchased a lovely stainless steel Cusinart Coffee Percolator as a gift to MOI:)

My question: in your opinion, what is the BEST coffee to use for this unit?
Regular, Beans? I did hear the Illy sells coffee for regular drip coffee makers:)

I have tried several different brands
(coffee maker doesn't like fine grind however)

The reason I bought it was I remember my Grandmother using one
the smell, aroma was so intense and inviting
And she would let me have a sip or two

I want flavour, full body A REAL hot cup of coffee
This is why I bought it
Thought that GREAT coffee would be better when the water is super hot.........?

Any recommendations , do tell:)
