Superior Cup o' Joe for the Willing

 

Super Joe, really cool brewing process to watch.

Could be a bit sturdier, but it's not a real problem.

Delicious Coffee, Lousy Coffee maker

 

I'll make this short and sweet. I've had 2 Bodum Santos electric coffee makers. Both made great coffee (although they do use a lot of grounds unless you modify the vacuum tube. Which we did not do) and while they're a little more work to clean it was ...

Makes terrific coffee during it's short lifeFast Interesting to watch

Product Specifications

Similar to a French Press but with less sediment, the Bodum Electric Vacuum Coffeemaker combines the convenience of an automatic drip maker with the full-body flavor of a stovetop vacuum brewer. Heated water in the bottom chamber creates pressure that drives water into the top to mix with ground coffee. Remove then replace the bottom chamber to create a vacuum that draws brewed coffee through a filter back into the bottom. Fun to watch, the process produces 6-12 cups of coffee. Good grip handle for easy one-hand pouring. Comes in 3 vibrant colors (each sold separately). Makes ten 5-oz. cups or twelve 4-oz. cups. Hand wash. Imported.
