1) From: Jeff Oien
Will a standard Vac Pot work well to make one 6 oz. cup?

I am not sure that there is a standard vac pot. It depends on the volume of the vac pot. My cory 8-cupper can't make a satisfactory batch of less than 5 cups (4 cups might work with the right parameters but I haven't found them yet).

IMO, no.
The 3 cup (12oz) Hario *might*.

I'd agree with you. We have a Bodum 50oz eVac that is supposed to make as
small as 25oz. We used it that way for weekday morning 25oz first pot of the
morning for about a year. Then got the Bodum 25oz eVac when it came out. The
smaller 25oz eVac makes a better 25oz pot than the 50oz. And takes up less
counter space which was the primary reason for getting it...

A 2 cup Cory is supposed to make one cup and/or 1/2 of it's potential. -

The 5 cup hario has specific markings for 3 cups and five cups.. in
which the 3 cup mark makes a perfect *american* sized mug, in my own
opinion. Check it out..

I have it, and it does....

I can't speak to all Vac Pots, but those that I am familiar with leave
a small amount of water in the lower unit.  In a six or eight cup unit
that will have no effect on flavor, but I would imagine it would have
profound effect on a single cup.  Of course one could learn to adjust
the amount of grounds to compensate I suppose.
Aside from the reserve water, would one get the flavor that the vacuum
pot offered with a lesser batch?  I don't think you would.  A good
pour over would probably produce a better cup.
