Bodum Santos Coffee Maker There are no doubt as many methods of brewing coffee as there are coffee drink flavors. They all follow the same basic rules, however:

1. Grind roast coffee beans.
2. Boil water and add to ground beans.
3. Filter and drink resulting brew.

Since the basic process is such a simple one, folks are always coming up with novel ways to accomplish it. Then of course, certain members of the coffee drinking community will praise it as being the absolute best way to enjoy the drink.

Enter the Bodum Santos Vacuum coffeemaker. This wins the novelty award as it appears to be a piece of equipment straight out of Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory. In operation, things are as simple as any coffeemaker. Grounds go into the top chamber while water fills the bottom. The unit is heated on stovetop using a heat diffusing trivet on burner to protect the tempered glass pot. The heated water is driven up, mixes with grounds and when removed from heat, the coffee flows back into the bottom pot for pouring.

For those using this coffeemaker, the reward is in the performance. Watching the liquid travel up from one pot to the other is fun, and demonstrates clearly what usually happens behind the metal walls of a percolator. The brewing capacity is about 32 oz. of coffee, perfect for two people in the morning or after dinner coffee for four.

Bodum has a well deserved reputation for quality, well designed accessories for coffee and tea lovers, and this is no exception. Legions of fans swear this to be the finest coffeemaker in all the land, but you'll have to judge that for yourself. What I like best is: this is the type of elegant low-tech device that can last a lifetime with proper care.
