BINGO!  Many thanks to those who replied both on and off the forum.
1. The v. coarse grind is the trick but you do need a grinder that does 
not produce fines.  I have set the Maestro Plus at 35 (whatever that 
means).  The maximum setting is a bit over 40.  Given the filtering 
method this is intuitive but I was cheaping out by using a finer grind 
of coffee.  You do need more with a coarse grind.  So be it....weak, 
watery coffee is nasty so go for broke. Do measure your water and 
proceed accordingly.  The lines on the pot indicate a larger cup volume 
than what I reckon to be a "coffee cup".   As Brett pointed out, you 
need to brew longer with a coarse grind.  The Cory pretty much takes 
care of itself in this regard.  It does make a delicious brew when it 
works properly.  As for the Bodum with the plastic disk filter, it will 
probably work with a coarse grind too but the general design with a 
narrow opening in the pot is a wobbly bad idea. 
2.  The Behmor is a continuing joy to use.  Folks.....save your $$ and 
get it.  You will not regret it. Gimme a half, Gimme a B, Gimme a P2!  
Watching those beans quietly rotate, the various (smokeless) scents from 
the roast and the totally audible crack stages......so soothing, 
satisfying and reliable.  The grown-up coffee geek toy par excellance.  
There must be a special heaven for those who invent such a great 
item.     Bernard
