Thanks, Mike and Angelo, for the tip on the Bodum - I'd forgotten
Does the mini-Bodum do any better at extraction time and temp than the
bigger one did? I tried a Starbucks variant a while back and wasn't
happy. Still - this is travelling we're talking about - and not the
usual at-home fare...
Nevertheless, I'd much prefer a plain ol' vac pot made of some
unbreakable material. Maybe someday.
