- I just used my 12 cup Bodum elrctric vacuum pot. Despite what
sweetmarias say's, I like it. Amazingly fast but the infusion seemd
long enough (I did, however, use a fine grind). When I turn on my
popcorn popper to roast some coffee, my neighbors come running. I've
had the Bodum for a while, but decided to use it due to the Pavlovian
drooling of my neighbors wanting some really fresh coffee, quickly,
despite the 92 degree heat. Anyway, it works great. I hope to find a
mini Bodum vac pot next.
My collection grows.
We used our 5 cup Mini Santos all last week. I also reduced the
grind some but with the grinder I was using, I also increased the
amount of coffee grinds I used. I brewed a Kona and an El Salvador
we roasted during the week, I preferred the El Slavador. I think
the Kona was just a wee bit too delicate for my tastes.
Hehehe we've got our neighbors too acclimated to our coffee as
well. BTW did you get any of Sweet Maria's "Panama collection"

- I must agree with you Rick, I got my 12 cup Santos a couple of weeks ago, I am very satisfied with the outcome and performance of this modern vacpot, I even come home in the evening in 90 degree temperatures and make a few cups of decaffinated coffee with it. I do have a mini santos as well,but i seem to notice that the 12 cup model does better as far as infusing time than compared to the mini. One drawback I dont like about the mini is that it will only keep the warmer on for 15 minutes before turning off the power. Just some thoughts to share.

- Fran I haven't tried the Panama Collection. Is it good? I am only in
the beginning stages of coffee roasting so I am still trying new
varieties. I do order coffee from Sweet Marias, however, there is a
local coffee house that does their own roasting and they are happy to
sell green beans (I posted the website in postings its under specialty
coffee advisor) so all I have to do is walk a few blocks. Saves on
postage and I get a little exercise.
Good to know about the Bodum mini, Gabe. Perhaps that is Bodum's way
of saying hurry up and drink your coffee.
- Hi all,
If anyone has an old burned out Bodum 12 cup electric vac pot they no longer want, I would be interested in buying it as long as it isn't much. I'm looking for a toy to tinker with.
Would consider a 5 cup one as well.
