Hello, On most mornings, I am make my coffee using the french press.  Recently, I bought a 8-cup Silex and Cory wide neck VacPot.  Both are functional but I bought them mostly to look at.  However, I would like to know how to make small quantities of coffee (12-16 oz) on occasion with the Vacpot.  I would like to use a stove top model.  Can someone recommend the best Vacpot for my purpose?  Are there any "tricks of the trade"  in making small amounts in the Vacpot?  Is it necessary to preheat the funnel on the cold mornings in the kitchen?   So far, I have the procedure down but have not made a very tasty cup. (A lot of water left below)  Thanks for any help!

 Making less than a full pot does not work so well with VacPots as
they will leave the same amount of water in the bottom weather making
a half pot or a full pot.
Buy a pot that makes the amount you want to make. I chose my Bodum
because it makes about 32 oz. 
The Yama VacPot makes about 20 oz.
The only thing I preheat is the water.
Good luck.

Actually I disagree. I use my Bodum all the time to make a single mug of 
coffee. I don't see how it maters that some of the water stays south, as 
long as there is enough water to brew, you get the same result.
