Topic: FW: vac or drip? (3 msgs / 57 lines)
1) From: Bob Glasscock
Thanks to all for the input. I believe our Cuisinart tank model with gold
filter would be hard to replace for that 4:00 A.M. cup, although the TV will
be at the top of our list when it comes time. What I'm looking for is
something to brew evenings and weekends or for company, so it looks like the
Yama may be the better choice. Our Capresso flat burr grinder is showing
signs of wear so will eventually replace with a conical.  
BTW today's brew is Guatemala Antigua City+ from SM. Yummmm.

If you're looking for a good, economical and SCAA approved drip
machine, I just picked up a Newco OCS-12 through the green coffee
buying club group buy.  It brews at the recommended 195-205 and after
I replaced our Cuisinart grind and brew I noticed a HUGE difference in
the coffee quality.
I use a swiss gold KF-10 which is a bit too short if you want to make
the full 12 cups but the deep paper filters work pretty well.  If you
opt for the OCS-8 model (8 cupper) instead, the KF-10 would be
perfect.
I'm VERY happy with it and it's like half the price of the TV.

Stalling can not only be caused by improper grind. Stalling might occur due
to a poor fitting gasket. If you have a stalling problem look to see if
there are air bubbles escaping from the gasket glass inter-face. If such is
the case place the gasket in a pot with boiling water and leave the gasket
in the water until it cools. This procedure will soften and swell the gasket
until a tight fit is achieved.The process may have to be repeated a few
times. For especially hard gaskets a thin coating of Vaseline helps.
