Topic: Brewing with Technivorm vs. Vacuum Pot (2 msgs / 53 lines)
1) From: Eddie Dove
Aaron,
I don't know that I would qualify either of the coffee brewing methods as
better, just different.
The Technivorm with a Swissgold filter can produce a full-bodied coffee
closer to that of a French Press.  The Vacuum pot produces a brew that is
cleaner and more refined; it brings to mind the "ting" of tapping fine
crystal.
At least that's my opinion / perspective.
Hope this helps ...
Eddie

I also think that many of us have found that we want/appreciate 
different brew at various times. In my case, I needed to find a method 
of producing great coffee in the AM that provided for both the quality I 
was after, and the quantity we needed. I went with the KMB (Krups Moka 
Brew [now discontinued]) for that as it makes a 40 ounce pot, and two of 
them provided enough for us to get our early morning slugs and coffee to 
bring to work in our thermos (what is the plural--thermi?)
I also pull some quick espresso shots in the AM, to accompany our breakfast.
If I drink coffee in mid-day, I usually go with a moka pot, for a single 
mug. After dinner, I tend to want decaf espresso. If we have company, I 
very often make a vac pot, in my case a biggish Yama, in part because of 
the amazing show, in part because I like that refined cup Eddie mentions.
When we have lots of company, I do lotsa manual pourovers. It's a fast 
way of getting great coffee fast if you happen to have a couple of 
electric kettles and airpots, as we do.
