I may have started a bit coarser......to the right of middle, because I didn't want to get a stall.  But I will experiment and go toward the middle.  There is one click between coarse/fine and fine/medium that I used.   The coffee seems strong enough.  Maybe I can get a little more body if I go a "tad" finer.

Since I am brand new to Vac pots, it's hard for me to tell what it "should" be.  But the fun will be in the experimentation!

I've been on the fence about upgrading to a Baratza Virtuoso......but, so far I'm very pleased with the Infinity.

Yep, the burner is a "pig-in-a-poke" purchase for me.  Lots of talk about NOTHING fitting under the Cona.  I may do one of those "hole cut outs" on a chopping board in the end.  But, I know I will DEFINITELY be able to use it in the HARIO.  

I've never seen the electrical device that fits under the Cona!  That WOULD be neat!!

Fits under the bottom globe with about 8-10mm clearance

^Nice! Obviously have to maintain some clearance over those coil type elements, but thoughts about putting it directly on a glass top stove (as I've been doing with the yama)?  No problems so far on a daily basis.  I'm also not risking much considering $20 vs. $200, but you have to figure the cona glass will be of much higher quality & at least as heat resistant.

I'm not too sure that the Cona glass will be much better quality. It's borosilicate I think, but I'm sure the Yama one will be as well.  

Cona's are pretty expensive devices (unless you get them from ebay as I do) - even moreso in the US than they are here - but in part you do pay for the name and the elegant '50's/60's retro styling.  They do work well though as you have discovered, and the great advantage is all spares are readily available when if you break it.

I think they recommend using a heat diffuser on an electric stove, but that is probably in relation to the heated coil type.  I'd have thought directly on a glass (presumably halogen ?) stovetop would be fine, but I'd make sure the bottom of the bowl was dry.  

Don't have any first hand experience I'm afraid. Have only gas and induction, and for some strange reason they won't work on that ?

(only kidding, I DO know why...)

^lol reality check. And it'd be just my luck to have a cona break on me after the yama never did.

Thanks for the tip about drying the bottom- I suspected as much, but have been a little careless in that regard lately.

If you do bust anything, Classicona (www.classicona.com) ship spares anywhere.  

Their website is terrible, but if you can get past that they have or can get most anything you might ever need, including stuff for models long out of production.  They aren't particularly cheap, but if you're in urgent need  they are at least a solution.

Cona stuff pops up on ebay very regularly over here.  I'm just hanging on for a model B top globe (obsolete now) after an incident involving a jar of honey falling out of the cupboard (closet) immediately above it....  Fortunately, I already have a spare, but you never know.

I don't have any business connection with Classicona by the way, but have bought gaskets from them and they were quite helpful.
