The smoothest coffee I've ever made

unknown, Sur la table
9 November 2015
  • Summary: I've been using the Bodum vacuum maker for several weeks. I have found my favorite cup of coffee. It is a little cumbersome at the beginning but once you get the hang of it, you'll love it. Besides it being fascinating to watch, the resulting coffee is smooth and perfect.

Ine great cup o joe

Magdalene Kellett, Amazon
8 August 2015
  • Summary: Easy, straight firward and one hell of a cup of coffee! It takes a little patience but it pays . The only thing I recommend is to pay attention to your grind, you dont want it too fine. A regular grind should be fine.

Great brewing system

Robare, Amazon
8 August 2015
  • Summary: Simpler to use day to day than the Bunsen burner style siphons you often see. Brews a great, even low acidity cup, and it's always fun to show off "science coffee" to your friends. Only downside - really easy to break the top glass. Had to replace it twice (which was *not* cheap).

Not all that it is cracked up to be!

James Smyth, Amazon
8 August 2015
  • Summary: I have owned two of these and am regretting the purchase. The Yama brewers appear to be a much better value. When brewing coffee in these, it is common for the pot to get "stuck", the water will go up but won't come down quickly or at all.

Clean brew, crappy parts.

Alastair L. Drong, Amazon
8 August 2015
  • Summary: Compared to the Hario siphon I had, this thing is finicky and cheap. Pros: - Makes a good, classic siphon brew. - The ridged filter disk does a very good job preventing grounds from reaching the cup. Cons: - All the plastic parts feel flimsy, including the filter disk.

Worth it. I would buy again.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 August 2015
  • Summary: This is fun. Also makes a nice, non-bitter cup of Joe. It says you can use any grind of coffee - not true. Has to be finely ground or you'll have the weakest brew ever. But worth every dime.

Fabulous and easy

Scott, Amazon
8 August 2015
  • Summary: This thing is so cool! It took a few times before I got it right but now I enjoy the best coffee every day. It's super easy to clean and feels durable. I wash it in my dishwasher frequently and it hasn't broken! :)

Love this contraption!

icecreamlover, Amazon
8 August 2015
  • Summary: I love this contraption. It's like something out of a chemistry lab. I found it easy to figure out. For me the coffee tastes less bitter and with a more delicate flavor than autodrip. I think it makes for a nice, gentle, gradual brewing process, not to mention fun to watch.
