So I got this for Christmas
It's a vacuum siphon coffeemaker
. I know a couple other Icrontians have them too (@djmeph
. Those of you who went to the coffee cupping at Chazzano
know what this is all about.
So far, it's my favorite way of making coffee. It solves the super-sensitive bitterness problem that comes from the French press and it's cheaper and less messy than hand-pour. You get a mellower cup from it, so it takes bold beans really well (I'm drinking Sumatra Mandheling right now and it's super smooth).
