Clean stong coffee that is worth the two minute wait.
Positive Product Points
Very easy to use for a first time brewer. Forgiving process that produces a clean strong cup of coffee. The Tech-3 size is perfect for a single serving of hot coffee. Simple clean up due to no grinds left over.
Negative Product Points
Had to buy butane burner to get fast heating since the bottem bowl's opening is very small and makes it hard to pour in preheated water. Nothing else is negative!!!
Just finished the second bag of Ethiopian coffee I bought and the flavor only gets better. Vac Pots are a ton of fun to show and use, besides making the best coffee I have ever had. A med-to-fine grind for the coffe beans is perfect for the cloth filters and allows the oils to flow through without any grit. It is nice to have coffee that isn't bitter and doesn't leave an aftertaste like most coffee stores. Storing the filers in the fridge in a zip-loc bag for up to two weeks with daily use is very easy. Clean up is short and sweet. Keep kids away from the glass since it can break easy even though it is high quality.
Aveune 18 out of Richmond, BC Canada was great to deal with and even moved me to the lower cost model due to it being easier to use. The owner even showed me how to use everything and gave a discount on everything bought.
Three Month Followup
I use the Tech-3 everyday and it makes the best coffee. Clean up is very easy and fast. A Med-Fine grind works the best.
