I don't make that much vac coffee, but one of the things that concerns me 
is that while the top pot is filling (you say yours takes 30 seconds, 
others maybe even longer) the water is not yet up to the proper temp, so we 
are starting out with maybe 20 seconds of colder water doing the brewing. I 
would think it would make more sense to hold off putting the coffee in 
until after ALL the water is in the top globe, when it is all one temp.
  I will have to try to remember to do this and see if I note a difference....
Ciao,
