Bodum Santos Vacuum Coffeemaker
I keep getting mail about this beauty - and I have to say...it is indeed a very cool non-single serve coffeee maker.
"As beautiful as sculpture, as fascinating as chemistry, and as entertaining as theater, this coffeemaker from Switzerland converts the ordinary process of brewing coffee into an artful performance. And it makes six 5-ounce cups of full-flavored coffee while it entrances. The coffeemaker fits together like this: water goes into the carafe, a filter fits into the mouth of a tube in the top globe, ground coffee goes into the globe (a scoop is included), the globe fits atop the carafe with the tube extending into the carafe, and the carafe goes onto the stovetop with a trivet or heat diffuser between it and electric or gas heat. (This is all much simpler and quicker than it sounds.)"

Why I cannot buy the pods in New Zealand ? I have 2 machines that I bring with my from Europe, and I cannot find proper price coffe pods to buy. I found only one company in Holland that delivers to NZ, but it takes 3 months to be delivered and I have to order 5 kilos+ every time. It's a shame if I have to change my machines as I love the coffee from them.
Can you help ?
I have one of these makers and it's a really fun maker to use. Back then before the drip pots and perolators came along, everyone had these. They came in all shapes and sizes. There is an art to making coffee in a vac pot. Kinda like making a potion. But when done correctly you have perfect coffee everytime.
The trick is to get the water near boiling and then put the top piece on. Right before all the water rises or you see the coffee in the top part bubbling, lower your fire and let it gurgle for 3 minutes. Set a kitchen timer. You will reach a good vacuum and not ruin the coffee. Remove from heat and pull that top off as soon as you hear the air rushing back in so you don't suck the oils and acid from the coffee back into the pot.
