Good old fashioned pot

 

It makes great coffee...just like 60 years ago when I first seen a double-bubble coffee pot.

Super low tech product for good coffee, vac style....

 

My wife bought two of these on closeout for $20.00 each (one for use, one for spare parts). It's been twenty months since purchase and the brewer works just fine, makes good coffee, although you should not grind the coffee too fine, the brewed coffee...

Simplicity ; Ease of use on the range ; Makes very good coffee ; Good price for its function

Plastic handle ; Cheesy plastic stand for holding upper coffee bowl ; Plastic filter plug

If you want to get into vacuum brewing, and have limited funds, go with the Santos.

 

When I first got the Bodum Santos, I was ecstatic. I brewed my first cup and thought, this is my new brewing method of choice. Then I realized I had been doing it wrong, too find of a grind was keeping the coffee at the top too long. So I tried again,...

Quality parts (for glass) ; Great looks ; Incredible coffee every time (so far) ; Easy to break apart for cleaning

Consumer review by: Joseph Bendzinski (coffeegeek.com)

Like very much and coffee is great.

 

I have had this coffee maker for about 5 months. I have had no problems making the coffe at all. No boil ups or volcanic reactions like I read in some reviews. I took out the plastic filter and bought a Cory Glass fileter to replace plastic fileter....

Very easy to use had no problems whatsoever. Coffee is excellent

Have to stay near pot while making coffee. Takes longer to make coffee this way

Consumer review by: L Mats (coffeegeek.com)

Great coffee, fun to watch brewing, inexpensive, glass construction was easy to clean - but found the glass funnel easily breakable.

 

Nice to see the Santos around again after all these years. We bought our first Santos at Macy's back in the late 80's/early 90's, and enjoyed it so much we purchased 5 over several years. Coffee made in the Santos tasted great, and was entertaining...

Great little setup ; good coffee ; inexpensive ; looks great during brewing ; glass construction cleans easily

Glass funnel - broke many during washing or storage ; Removing carafe from funnel can be challenging

Consumer review by: Tim Eggers (coffeegeek.com)

All in all I love my Santos and I highly recommend it, and excellent first vacuum pot!

 

Being the typical coffee hobbyist I selected to get a Bodum Santos out of curiosity and I'm glad I did. It has proven over the last 2-3 years to be a worthwhile purchase producing excellent unique flavored coffee. I've not had any significant...

Widely available (making finding parts much easier, just contact Bodum) ; Exceptional brewing method for rich excellent flavored coffee with all the oils and none of the sediment ; Nice size for a few coffee drinkers ; Overall pretty good

Ok these are minor gripes and more just observations ; Plastic handle is a little flimsy but has never been a serious problem for me ; Funnel holder stand is really pointless (but it does work fine); I like to rinse the top globe immediately after...

Bodum Santos Coffee Maker

 

Excellent coffee, fun to watch, easy to do.

Fragile, a little complicated for daily use.

Showy Fun, and Great Coffee!

 

I love good coffee, sometimes roast my own green coffeebeans, and am always looking for a better way to brew. I dimly remember my father brewing coffee in a vacuum pot, from many years ago, and I guess a little of his love of gadgets got passed to me...

Excellent coffee, fun to watch, easy to do.

Fragile, a little complicated for daily use.
