Well said,Patrick. The other posts were excellent too,and I believe mentioned the fact that each method has it's own qualities,and personal taste is the final criterion. Also,at least in my opinion,there is a noteable difference between drip with a paper filter and drip with a gold filter. Regards, Barry

I will agree with the Dj and Craig regarding the Mocha Brew. It makes a very good cup and after I graduated from Mocha brew University I was in love with it. Yes, just kiddin abit, but it does require a little of your time for experimention,but this is time well invested and rewarding. The Mocha Brew is very dependent upon the kind of coffee you use. A complex and aromatic bean will really compliment this machine.

So, what do folks recommend for Vac Pot under $50? What's the best value out there right now? I've seen some selling on EBay for $20, but I'm not sure of their quality. Sweet Marias has shown ranging up into the $150 range, and I'm not sure I want to take that plunge.

I have the Yama Vacuum Brewer. It's works fine for me, and it's flat at the bottom, so you can use it on an electric stove with the supplied wire rack (don't go above 50% heat). It does brew only enough for 1-2 people, so that is a downside. But you can get quite a number of Yamas for the same price as larger sized Cona Vacuum pot.:)
