The Creativity of Coffee Culture

I happened to find this via the Homeroasters email list last night.  I’m always amazed at the creativity and envelope-pushing of the homeroasting/coffee snob crows.  There’s never any end, it seems, to their creativity.  This little trick is billed to be similar to the Aeropress, but a poor man’s Clover.

If you haven’t heard, the Clover  is a coffee brewer that aims to make the perfect cup every time.  And it should, since it weighs in at+$10,000.  So, a poor man’s version would be good.  The one described over at CoffeeGeek uses lab equipment and a hand vacuum pump to create the brew.  It’s something, as I read it, like a Vacuum Pot.  Read and decide.

Sounds interesting for sure!  Once again, the coffee crowd amazes!

    I’ve got some catching up to do on my commenting. Hopefully, my internet connection will last long enough to make some kind of comment.

    I’ll never have $11,000 to spend on a coffee machine (unless I open my own little shop) but boy would I like to have that Clover! That does look like the ultimate brewing machine. I wonder how closely the knock-off version can replicate the coffee produced by the Clover? This may be something I have to look into more closely sometime next year.

    If what the CG forum posters are saying is right, it sounds like the Clover is a simplified version of a Vacuum pot. That’s my take on the lab hardware version.

    A simplified version? Yet that simplicity costs $10,955 more than my vacuum pot? Wow, the price of simplication is high!

    By the way, how is Chris doing with his coffee, etc. Did he ever get a Yama pot? I’m feeling guilty about recommending it to him since I almost never use mine anymore—and never with good results when I do.
