Here’s something you probably don’t know about me, I hate coffee and never drink it. My friends and co-workers can’t seem to start their day without it but somehow I survive. (I thankfully managed to completely rid my body of its caffeine needs a few years ago.) Sure I don’t mind the smell while it’s being brewed but the final product I can gladly do without.
Of course if coffee is a vital part to your productivity then more power to you and might I suggest trying out this vacuum coffee maker from Bodum. The Santos model can brew 6-12 cups of coffee with a strong flavor similar to what is achieved from a french press. It uses a high-tech heating system developed by Bodum and from what I can tell a vacuum is used to pull the hot water through the coffee grounds and then a micron nylon filter. The whole brewing process is closed too meaning no aroma escapes so if you know someone who hates the smell this could be the coffee maker for you.
The Santos is available for purchase on the Bodum website for $99.99.
