Topic: Bodum Santos Vacuum (4 msgs / 69 lines)
1) From: Kevin
I just placed an order for a Bodum Santos Vacuum brewer from SM.  Are there
any tricks to using this brew method or is it straight forward from the
directions?  This brewer looks complicated to someone accustomed to your
typical drip or press pot method.  I thought it would be interesting to
compare cup profiles of the same roast via different brew methods (Mr.
Coffee drip, Bodum Press Pot, and Bodum Santos Vacuum).

Kevin,
Please let us know how your experience goes. I too think about trying this
and will eventually buy a vac pot. I want to try all the methods of coffee
prep that I have learned about here on the list and elsewhere. Currently I
am primarily a drip brew man (I have a TV KBTS at home and a Capresso MT500
at work)with the occasional Espresso in my Silvia (she is getting a PID
installed right now), I have 2 different size French presses but I find the
clean up to be a PITA. I was looking at the Bodum Santos and maybe a Chemex
too. If you have some good feedback on the Santos, it may give me the nugde
I need to (gasp!) spend more money at SM's.
Thanks,
Vince

At some point between French and fire, it really doesn't matter much what
the "origin character" of the coffee was...

I use the bodum as my daily brewer
It is pretty straightforward.
I use 5 normal coffee measures for a pot ground similar to drip.
Heat the water in the bottom to >180F
put on the top
when the water is almost all north stir
when it is all the way up drop heat to low
wait 2 min
take off heat
I like a clean tasting cup but if you like you brew a bit more flavorful
give it an extra stir at 1min

Steve,
Thanks for the hints.  I will follow them.  I
Vince,
I'll take copious notes and post a follow up about two weeks after the start
of the experiment.  I'll reduce the variables down to just the brew method.
I may video the process (roast included) and put clips on a website but
that'll take some time (which is limited right now)...when I do, I'll post
the link.  That's my plan anyway...
