I spent about 15-20 minutes reading throughout the page and messing around with "blaze applet". This is the first time I have read anything about Percolation. I found it hard to follow at first until you explained what it means, then everything started to make sense. I think that this is a good way of getting to understand percolation. The fire spreading through trees, and the coffee in the pot are great representations. I think first time users will find this easy to use as the blaze applet is accurate, and fun!
