Hey, he's using a coffee siphon!
Do science in your own home for the dizzying price of $33!
Swap your areopress for a vac-pot with a cloth filter.
I really like my Yama stovetop siphon, which runs about $35. The mechanics are the same, but you use your stove for the heat source. The 22oz model makes two American-sized cups of sweet, delicious coffee.
How about 8 cup Yama Siphon Brewer? Amazon link ;)
Here you go.
Just so you know, you can find Siphon's in the 50-70 range on amazon. Take the Yama 8 cup for example.
Here is a thermometer similar to the one I use for siphon brewing for $17. It won't work for home roasting. If you think you might get into that, you will need one that has a higher max temp (500 F+). I haven't bought one yet because I am considering a roast profiling setup which would port to my pc. This is a good grinder at $45. This is the kitchen scale I like for $50 but you might be able to get one for less. The scale only measures down to grams which works fine for this siphon at 40 oz. ($36) but for a smaller siphon you might need a scale that measures down to .1 grams. To summarize, you could get a decent set up for ~$120 or for a roast compatible thermometer ~$145. You will also want a wooden spoon for stirring the coffee in the siphon.
I forgot. You can make siphon coffee on a stove top. I didn't think of this because I have an induction cook top and can't use this unless I have an induction plate to cook with non metal materials. Plus, an open flame looks better =)
It's very finicky and I suggest you do alot of research, use good coffee, use the right grind, timing and patience to get it right. The coffee also changes flavor as it cools. It's great.
Let me know what you end up doing. Keep me posted =)
look at a coffee syphon. They make some bad ass coffee and with experience you can tweak the strength, mix and temperature with this baby. makes EXCELLENT coffee. makes a french press seem like a mere coffee maker.
anybody know where to get that actual vacuum/siphon coffee maker? because they sell them for a lot less than OP posted: link but none of them ever look the same
You can get a vacuum brewer cheaper than many automatic coffee machines http://www.amazon.com/Yama-Glass-Stovetop-Coffee-Siphon/dp/B002CVTKW4
I'd like to add a siphon brewer into the mix. To me, this is the best of both worlds. While I do enjoy a good cup of french press once in a while, it is typically a lot thicker than your standard drip coffee. On the other hand, drip makers offer little in the way of control, and you tend to end up with something weak and thin. With a siphon brewer, you get both the control and a cup of coffee that really has a full body. You have to play around a bit to get the feel for how to do it just right, but you need to do that with a french press as well.
Others might say Chemex is another option for a good compromise, but I've never used one, so I don't know. When I want to make coffee for my wife and I on the weekend, I always go to the siphon pot. Well, until I broke it the other day, but the replacement is coming soon.
PROTIP - don't keep the stove on high after the water has moved to the top part of the device. Turn it to low or off. I kept it on high, smelled burning glass, then removed it quickly only to lose the entire bottom portion of the pot. This can happen on a drip machine as well if you keep it on for too long with nothing in the pot.
I have the Yama stovetop, and had zero complaints from it. http://www.amazon.com/Yama-Glass-Stovetop-Coffee-Siphon/dp/B002CVTKW4
I'm not big on table top siphons since without a bunsen burner, they're kind of a waste, and to me that's just too much hassle when i have a perfectly good stove.
