Topic: Yet again....The Cory Coffee Maker (17 msgs / 653 lines)
1) From: homeroast
This is a recurring topic of which I have been part.  The problem with 
mine is that it generally stalls and as such is a waste of good 
materials and a pain in the butt.  Since Cory sold thousands of these 
units in the past  and folks used them extensively there must be 
something  in what I am doing.  Suspicion was on the fines in my grind 
which even coarse with my Maestro Plus failed to remedy.  "In those 
days" of the Cory folks used store coffee and I figured there was little 
fines in that product.  "Grind" was pointed at in responses too.
Guess who came to the rescue?  Our ever faithful and true Eddie Dove who 
suggested sifting the grind before using it and even supplied the Dove 
jar (like Erlenmeyer flask), as I call it, to do the job.  Problem 
solved!  It was amazing that there was significant fine production even 
with an upscale grinder.  Not to waste, I use the fines with my 
Aeropress.  Thanks again and bless you Eddie.
As Brett just pointed out, each cup of whatever you are currently using 
or doing has its own message.  An example of savoring the moment.  This 
is a problem with the Cory brewing method versus the Aeropress which has 
been my usual route.  Very different not just the usual slight 
difference from one AP brewing to another.   More decisions!  Bernard

How do you sift fines with an Erlenmeyer flask?
Thanks,

Interesting post, Bernard!  I've had trouble with my Yama Vacuum pot since
getting a new grinder (coffee often stalls out in the upper chamber).
Perhaps sifting the grinds will solve my problem as well.  Thanks for the
tip!

And as Brett's said in the past, the best grinder for a Cory Vac pot is
a Cory!  I have a DEG with older, dull burrs, but it will do well for a
Vac Pot.  The coarse setting is coarse and pretty even.  The burr set is
set quite solidly so there's no wobble!  That beast isn't a daily user,
but neither is the Cory vac pot.

When I got my new Bodum the stalls drove me crazy. Everyone kept telling me
it was my grinds (grinz in Hawaiian pigeon is food). One day I noticed
bubbles coming out from around the gasket and glass interface. I placed the
gasket in boiling water and allowed it to remain in the water until it
reached room temperature. Then repeated the process until the gasket became
softer more pliable and larger. After a few years I broke the pot and bought
another. The same problem. The same solution.
Don't always assume it is the grind all too often it is the gasket. To make
sure it is not the gasket coat the gasket with some Vasaline.If the stalling
stops go to the boiling method.

I use a Cory DEG, a Cory CCG, and a Zassenhaus 499 - all work equally well
with my VacPot.  I don't seem to get the fines with any of these...
Jason, glad to see another DEG owner out there!

Thanks for the post, Bernard.  I too have suffered from stalls using my
Cory.  I have both problems: fines and a leaky seal.  I'm going to try both
sifting my grind as well as boiling my seal.  Hope it works ' cause I really
enjoy the nectar from my Cory.
Had a really outstanding cup of Nicaragua Placeres Estate Miel this morning
on my way to work.  Roasted to FC+ and brewed in my Aeropress.  Wow.  Pure
chocolate with a touch of honey sweetness, and great medium body!

Great point Barry!  My Cory has a pretty new FoodServiceDirect gasket (no
longer available there), and I did lots of boiling, fitting and cooling
exercises to make it fit once for all...

My cory gasket is hard and I've never tried the boil treatment.  What I
find is a little extra pressure from moi keeps the seal in place.  Maybe
one day I'll try and boil the gasket and see what happens.
But it's always a treat to have the special vac pot.

In the meantime use the Vaseline and you won't have to push. Maybe push too

My cory gasket is hard and I've never tried the boil treatment.  What I
find is a little extra pressure from moi keeps the seal in place.  Maybe
one day I'll try and boil the gasket and see what happens.
But it's always a treat to have the special vac pot.

Somebody had talked about soaking the gasket in order to help the material
be more pliable....
I went with a newer gasket - but have been unable to find them available any
longer...  Does anyone have a resource for Cory vacuum brewer seals/gaskets?
Thanks,
Brett
