percolator coffee

So, I love vintage kitchen and barware, and lately I've been drooling over the bakelite and chrome coffee sets on ebay - snazzy little numbers with sugar, creamer, tray, and a coffee maker. I assume these are percolators. Here's the thing - though I vaguely remember my mother's percolator making that fabulous noise on holidays, I didn't drink coffee back then and I have no idea what percolator coffee tastes like. I fear it may not be a good thing - that's certainly what I've always heard, but someone told me recently his parents won't drink anything but percolator coffee. Are they crazy? Is it not that bad after all? Do I have an excuse to bid on the chrome set with the Deco lines and the red bakelite handles?

If the coffee is terrible, can I do anything to adapt the pot to just hold the coffee, rather than brew it (that may need to go on the not about food board.)

Thanks.
