Topic: pourover with gold filter into vac airpot vs chemex (5 msgs / 164 lines)
1) From: jerry walker
Hi i am tired of pressing aeropress shots and americanos for coworkers and i am considering a chemex then decanting into a good carafe of some sort, i will stilll need a electric kettle, or skipping the chemex and just brewing directly into a zojirushi carafe with a filter of some kind  ( reccomendations?) was wanting oppinions on the end product over the chemex?  It would appear that since the chemex is just a glass container to hold the coffee after it goes thru a filter, that the gold filter or another good filter brewing directly into a good glass carafe would produce as good or better results, as i say i need a electric kettle to heat the water and a carafe to keep hot , and was trying to kill 2 birds with one stone but if the result will be less than the chemex brew i will probably opt to spend the $$
thanks in advance to all

Since you are doing this for your coworkers, why not ask everyone to 
pitch in and buy something like a Technovorm?

that is a option but, i was looking for the best cup possible i have been
following the sweetmarias aeropress instructions double shot at about 195
then dilluting with the same amount of water used to press the shot it
really makes a delicious Americano, i was under the impresion that the
chemex or pourover thru a good filter resulted in a superior cup vs the
technovorm? I have never tried either so i am all ears to anyone who has
insight on quality of both brew methods
thanks again

I'm using a Moka pot, and never tried the Chemex or TV - others here 
will be more help.
But I'm starting to brew for more people, (grinding by hand & brewing 
in a tiny one-cup Moka pot is not really all that fun -- but it also 
makes a delicious Americano). Hopefully in the future I'll be able to 
purchase something that'll make it all easier. So I'll be watching this =
thread.

Jerry, for what it's worth.
Get an electric Bodum Santos.
It's quick, it's easy, it'll make 12 cups of coffee and is a 'cleaner' 
cup of coffee with more clarity and less sediment than some of the other 
methods.
I have one and while I typically like a coffee that has a lot of body to 
it (swiss gold) I find that it makes an excellent cup of coffee as well 
and can make enough for a group when needed.
Yes, I too got tired of grinding and SG'ing 4 to 5 cups of coffee at a 
time, one cup at a time.  The vac pot works just fine for me.
To clean it, just rinse the pot out and run the top under the sink to 
wash the grounds down, it uses a nylon filter so no need for paper 
filters either.
