"Cool" looks, satisfying to use - and "fine" coffee
Positive Product Points
"Clean" (no bits!) version of press pot.
Negative Product Points
Feels fragile and bulky. (Big disadvantage after an alcoholic dinner party!)
Because of its disadvantages, I don‘t use it very often - and certainly not for a quick cuppa.
I use it on the stove- after the first try or so with the meths thing.
Use hot water in bottom. Don‘t knock the glass stopper if you must stir it.
I have a theory that vac pot coffee accentuates all coffee varietals tastes - YMMV.
