Topic: Bodum Santos Filter Disk (non-electric) (4 msgs / 59 lines)
1) From: Ben Treichel
Hello People,
A flaw commonly sited for the Bodum Santos Vac Pot is the plastic filter 
disk. Can someone tell me why its bad, and what benefits replacing it 
with other filters are gained?
Thanks,
Ben

I use my Bodum Santos with the original plastic filter disk, and love the 
results I get, so I'm not sure what the problem is either.  I don't seem to 
get much sediment in the coffee at all, and don't usually have stalls.
Other folks have suggested substituting a glass filter rod from other 
vacuum pots, or rods plus filter cloths.
I've not tried any other filter in my Bodum, but I'm satisfied with the 
disk, and think it's pretty ingenious and simple.  Easy to clean too.

I've also had no problems with the disk. As a matter of fact I use it with 
some of my other vac pots...Yama, Silex
Just make sure your grind is coarse  enough so that it doesn't clog the 
filter. A coarser grind also helps keep sediment to a minimum, although, I 
happen to enjoy a little sediment in my coffee....
Ciao,
Angelo

Same here, and I use a drip grind from my zass for the grind. If I do 
get a stall, I wipe the top of the pot with a wet cold cloth. No more stall.
