Bodium French Press, Capresso One-group, various auto brewers
Nothing to watch while you are making your coffee? Try a vac brewer and let the fun begin!
Positive Product Points
Fun to watch. Coffee stays real hot. Nice smooth consistancy. I like the way it looks!
Negative Product Points
Clear - Gets noticably dirty and difficult to clean
Wow, it's fun to watch a vac pot! It's like having chemistry lab at home! :-) I have never purchased a vac pot before, so it was fun getting to play with one. The coffee stays real hot which is nice for once. The taste and balance of vac coffee is similar to french press I find. And I think the pot looks good . . . others may disagree, but I like the mod look. The only low point would be the fact that it is clear, which in the long run will make it difficult to clean. I think that bodium needs to makes one that is solid metal (is it already done or possible?) Do electronic vac brewers have enough positive points to beat out auto brewers?Hmmm . . . maybe.
Nordaggio's Coffee, LLC - I bought the product in the store. Great place, my personal fav since I worked there for 4 years. Located in Tulsa, OK. Sells fine micro roasted coffee from Seattle.
Three Month Followup
Still a good pot. Makes clean coffee. The clean up is a hassle, though. The grounds need to be tended to right after use . . . but should'nt that be the way? I do wish the coffee stayed hotter. I have noticed that it cools down a lot quicker now. I also wish it had a bigger karafe. I still would have bought the product. Its so much fun watching it brew!
