Piping Hot Full Flavoured Fresh Coffee - with a couple of minor caveats.
The world over is full of people who complain that their coffee after brewing is just not hot enough. Plungers lose temperature from the moment you start, coffee makers dont start that hot, and rapidly oxidise and ruin the flavour of coffee, expresso's don't make enough of the good stuff and are prone to cleanup problems if not immediately tended to (while your coffee is getting cold). All these problems have been resolved with this vacuum coffee brewing system from Bodum.

Perfect cup of coffee on old brewing technology
I bought this product online from Kambos online and got it 3 days after as it was shipped from over the Eastern States. The product is all heat tempered clear glass and made in Portugal, the pouring handle, cover and filter is made of durable plastic. It is easy to prep, just add the right amount of water to the 2nd flask (either 6 or 8 cups level), put on the top flask filter and hook the chain to the end of the funnel, add the desired measure of ground beans, put it on the stove top and in 8-10 minutes you get really nice tasting coffee. The design for the vacuum brewer is really cool and it's easy to clean all parts.
What a discovery. I wish I had found this 20 years ago instead of stuffing around with expensive machines! Makes a great cup of coffee and is simple to use - I don't know how anyone could get it to not work. The character of the coffee is different to espresso not as heavy or concentrated but with an excellent balance of flavour. It might take some people a while to get used to this style of coffee.
Great when you want a larger quantity of coffee - when entertaining or at breakfast time.
Nothing to fault. Use a diffuser if you have a gas stove. Obviously it won't work on induction stoves.
Questions & Answers
We have a ceramic cooktop and when liquid spill or spits onto the element it will turn itself off. I have tried the conventional steel stovetop percolator but it spits water from the side valve without fail. Does the Pebo spit water. thanks, Liz
You should have no problems on this count with the Bodum Pebo. It bubbles a little but as long as it isn't to full, and you turn the heat down as soon as all of the water is out of the lower container you'll be okay. I don't think we have ever had any liquid spill from ours.
I'm so impressed I just bought a second when Catch of the Day had them at $19.95 recently; now I have a spare in case of any breakages!
Go for it and enjoy great coffee!
