Vac-pot Coffee

The first cup of coffee I ever drank was brewed in a vacuum pot. I was very young and it gave me a very bad stomach ache. But now I am a grown up.

Vacuum brewing is a method that was popular back in the day, but fell out of popularity when home drip brewers were introduced to the market. They have had a small resurgence among coffee aficionados. The ten thousand dollar coffee brewers used at Intelligentsia are basically high-tech vacuum brewers.

The coffee they produce has less sediment than a french press, but retains all the oils important to flavor. The brewing process also helps to ensure optimal temperatures.

Combined with fresh ground coffee, a vac-pot could the best way to brew coffee at home. Also, it looks bad ass.
