There's a thread in General Chat about coffeemakers. Bialetti, maker of stovetop espresso pots, has come out with the Mukka, a stovetop cappuchino maker where you just put in the water, coffee and milk in separate parts, put it on the LP range and stand back while it produces the finished product! Not inexpensive at $90, however.

For French Presses, I have one of these, Big Sky Bistro Press. Insulated cup to keep the drink warm outside at the picnic table, plus it's good for hot or cold stuf besides coffee.

I think you're confusing it with the transporter.

You guys just ruined what was to be a good cup of coffee while I red the forums, thanks a bunch.

Really though, we use a "Black and Decker Thermal Select" which brews the coffee from the top and dribbles it into a GLASS carafe,no heat under it. The coffee makers with the glass pot thats heated gets bitter while the burner keeps it warm. We have thought we found that the glass carafe keeps the coffee hot for a couple of hours without radically changing the taste. I think the ones with the stainless steel carafes tend to keep the coffee cooking and turning bitter while keeping it hot at least thats what I thought till you chemical engineers got into the discussion.

Speaking to the aroma of the coffee only, it doesn't matter WHAT you do with it. Within minutes of being brewed the molecules responsible for the odor start to change and the aroma decreases. Hot, cold, canned, makes no difference.

Bitterness primarily develops during roasting. The compounds contributing to bitterness are primarily lactones and phenylindanes. The longer you keep brewed coffee hot, the more the acidit increases, because the lactones turn into free acids. This influences the perceived bitterness.

(Chemist, not Chemical Engineer, but the article is from Chemical & Engineering News.

The reason I don't like microwaved coffee is that it tastes too radary.

Hmmm,,, I think much of the time I would have a hard time finding the right kind of current bush to make this one work, or the Microwave for that matter.

Gerry,
Cuisinart makes a small 4-cup electric coffeepot with a metal beaker. You used to be able to buy it at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It works great!!

Gerry, I recently bought one of the cuisinart coffeemakers with the metal beaker at Bed Bath and beyond, so I know they are still available.

I've never heard of one of those before. How does it work?

I'm looking to get one of these. Read the reviews from the Coffee Experts and check out the video on it's use. I'll have one of these before the week is out...

I had seen them, but not had a good look. With a photo and the maker for guidance, I found these:
Bodum Santos Vacuum Coffee Maker - ProductWiki (reasonable description except that it misses any reference to a filter)
Yama Vacuum Coffee Brewer TCA-3 - Green Beanery (says even less, but at least says it's filtered)
Vacuum Coffeemakers - Fante's (illustrated step-by-step operation)

Personally, I don't see any "siphon" effect going on, and little if any "vacuum", in most of these. It works much like the recently discussed Italian style (such as those by Bialetti), but the coffee ends up in the bottom (instead of the top), and passes both ways through the grounds and filter (versus one way, upwards). Both are driven by steam pressure; the Bialetti et al are done as soon as the water passes through; these ones need to cool to relieve pressure and allow the coffee to flow by gravity (and maybe slight vacuum) back to the bottom.

The Retro model from Fante's really does need a vacuum to return the coffee, and that return is via a siphon. I think it would be a fascinating toy, but the models from everyone else look more practical to me.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
