How much coffee does it make in one go?  We happened on a
Bodum Santos yesterday at a price we could not ignore (especially
since I'd been planning to buy a vac pot anyway), but we drink
coffee by the mug, not dinky little cups.  The Santos produces
three mugs, by our standards.  That means we will have to stick
with the Chambord 12-tasse (four mugs) for morning and reserve
the vac pot for special occasions and testing new brews.  Not that
we will ever regret having French press coffee to wake up with,
but it would have been nice to have a choice.
Anyone know of a vacuum pot that produces, say, 1.5 quarts
at a time?
Thanks.

The largest I've found is the big Cona, and it makes a quart (maybe a liter)
at a time.  Unfortunately, it's about $160.

Hardly.  The Yama makes 22oz.

Found a complete glass vac pot in a thrift shop for $3 that has a capacity
of 3 quarts-uses a ceramic filter.  They are out there just keep looking.
You can buy the Nicro knock off from foodservicedirect for about $50.  Have
the orig nicro SS -it makes about 1.5 quarts of very good coffee-thrift shop
also for $3.

My antique Sunbeam CoffeeMaster will do 1.25+ quarts at a time.  You can
find them on eBay for prices MUCH cheaper than a modern store-bought
vac-pot.  So far, the old girl is making excellent coffee, and I'm just
using a jerry-rigged cheesecloth filter.

It is something called a Vaculator-has a ceramic plug like filter sitting in
a clear glass tube.  Someone said it was for restaurants-or maybe large
families.  No digicam yet-am waiting for Canon G3/S45's to arrive in supply.
Have seen pics of them-nada special.  Oh the thrift shop that had this also
had a NIB commercial coffee maker, plumbed in and looks like a private label
Bunn-looks just exactly like the one group Bunns-$5 for that-and it is still
in my basement in the box.  Maybe have an office some day.  just keep
looking
