Topic: OT- Coffee Siphon in "Bucket List" (13 msgs / 463 lines)
1) From: GJTreehouse
This is a little off topic but still coffee related.
We went to see the movie "Bucket List" Friday night. BTW it was great and a
true classic Jack Nicholson. Lots of interesting subjects brought up during
the course of the movie. I highly recommend it. Now to the point.
It seems that Jack was a coffee snob and made his Kopi Luwak coffee, the
only stuff he would drink because it was the most expensive, in a gold
coffee siphon. I think the process is similar to the Vacuum Brewers Tom
sells. I have never seen one like they had in the movie. I did google
"coffee siphon' and found a site that actually sells them at about $400 to
$800. Depends upon whether you want copper, gold or silver.
They look elegant and very cool.
Does anyone have any experience with these in particular? Does the coffee
taste the same as when made with say a Cona Vacuum unit?
Just curious.
BTW, when Jack said that the only coffee he would drink was the Kopi Luwak
cause it was the most expensive, I laughed out loud; I was the only one in a
packed theater. My wife understood, no one else did until later in the
movie. You will have to see it to understand why.
Thanks in advance.
Gary

OK, what's that outside the window at about Ten o'clock in the bottom two
images?
You could incite a riot if you sent them to Art Bell or George Noory along
with some Kona roast. -ro

It's just possible that advances in roasting skill, grinder quality, and
brewing technique in the intervening years might yield a different result
today.

Why would results change? We have two different style vacuum brewers both
using full non-reactive vessels and filter material, both use same type heat
source, both were used same time infusions, both used same bean from same
roast batch, both used same grinder. (In that case Rocky with new burrs,
replacement set #1) Change any one variable for both and results would most
highly likely change the same for both. 
Feel free to run your own comparisons and post contrary results.

O.K. A coast to Coast Listener may get excited about the 'Discovery'
Ray-O, But I don't think the background is clear enough to get an
'alien' command ship out of it.
Only you Ray....Only you....LOL...

Ha!  I did the same thing!  I laughed at Morgan Freeman's response to Jack
Nicholson. No one else got it.  I had to explain it to my friend.  I also
recited along with Morgan Freeman's character as he explained to Jack
Nicholson what exacly Kopi Luwak was.  My friend just laughed and shook her
head.

I *thought* I saw that syphen somewhere before, but I couldn't remember
where I saw it during the movie.  I even scoured Sweet Maria's site when I
got home to see if that's where I'd seen it before.  Now I remember where!

At least the little gray men wouldn't try too long to carry on a
conversation with my dang grinder, if they mistook it for one of them- same
