Since my first fascination with vacuum brewers, I've bought more than a few of them. In fact, at last count I was up to 37 vacuum brewers, including balance brewers (side by side), 70 year old antiques, and ultra modern electronic models.  Why so many? The thing is, they are a bit of forgotten history, and I'm a student of history. But am also completely fascinated by them, and the coffee they produce.

This section might just end up being the largest "sub" section of this entire website. I've got a lot of content to add regarding vac pots, including the one and only FAQ on the subject (well, I don't know of any others out there), photos of some of my favourite models, and even a how-to on brewing with one. I hope you enjoy.

If you have any interesting links on home roasting or would like to see a special feature or how to on the subject, please email me but also keep in mind I do get quite a volume of mail through this site and cannot answer it all.
