This is not a percolator. This is a stovetop espresso machine. The difference is tremendous.

Percolators boil water and boil the coffee itself. This leads to a poor cup of coffee. Coffee boiled is coffee spoiled.

Stovetop espresso machines create pressure to push the water through the coffee into the top reservoir. The coffee itself is not boiled and is not recycled through the same grind, leading to a clean almost-espresso.

If a proper gaggia machine were a Lamborghini, and a standard espresso machine were a Civic, this machine might be a used kia (a proper Bialetti is more like a new Yaris - I take one with me when I travel, along with a bean grinder).

A percolator is a Fischer price toy car. It vaguely looks the right shape but doesn't actually make espresso or decent coffee.
