BODUM Pebo 8-Cup Vacuum Coffee Maker – 1 L/34 oz : Amazing

Preparation takes several minutes. Coffe is pure like drip coffe but taste is close to diluted espresso – americano. What i do not like is thickness of the glass.

I can’t say it’s my favourite coffee brewing device, but it’s certainly the most eye catching i’ve seen. I use it mostly when i have guests and want to impress them and also to brew a lot of coffee at once. It does a good job in brewing coffee, but as usual, the quality of the cup depends on the beans-roast-grind-water quality. The price is good for a syphon and since you can use it on the stove (with a heat diffuser), it’s also easy to use. Cleaning it might be a bit tricky if you want it cristal clear, but you can get away by only running water in it. Being all glass and quite big it requires extra attention when handling it, so you need to be careful when using it.

A cup of coffee is judged by the taste, and thus how enjoyable it is or is not. And this made me an excellent cup of coffee. It had a lovely strong but clean taste, it was warmer than a drip filter coffee machine with absolutely no grit or sediment in the bottom of the mug, unlike a coffee press. I also enjoyed watching the gadget do the business as wellit arrived on the first of the range of dates i was given for delivery as well.

Looks great, but i have to disagree with other reviewers about the quality of the coffee it makes: disappointingly bland compared with, say, an aeropress. This earlier comment was the result of making a small quantity of coffee. Works and tastes much better when you are making a full pot.

This was a replacement for a long owned ‘santos’ set from bodum. Quality glass, adequate for stove top use. It was exactly what i expected. My prefered way of preparing coffee. Pay attention to brewing time and water temperature, and you will be rewarded with a great cup of coffee.

I love it, i use it everyday and the quality of coffee you get from it is amazing. I was delighted with this buy and would highly recommend it.

This is an amazing piece of kit it produces espresso strength coffee but not thick, it is easy to use easy to clean. My advise if you have only one method of making coffee get one of these. I have tried all other methods, moka, craftier e, neapolitans, filters, automated espresso makers etc etc ut nothing like this.

    Water heats in the lower chamber, creating vapour pressure that forces the boiling water up to mix with coffee grounds. The coffee maker is then removed from the heat and vacuum pressure draws the brewed coffee downward, and into the bottom jug for serving.

    Makes good coffee, looks ace while it’s doing it. Little bit of a faff, but worth it as it’s cool.

    The coffee you make with this machine is great. However, when you get the coffee maker throw away the instructions and google it instead. Love the coffee, hate to clean the machine.

    I find it makes poorer shop bought coffee taste better, but doesn’t bring out the flavours in more expensive artisan coffees. One thing to note – it’s not good for small volumes of coffee – it’s best when used for 3 or 4 large mugs. Mine comes out when we’ve got the whole family over for coffee and i need lots sr the same time.

    It’s a great coffeemaker if you want real coffee and takes less time than my coffee machine. Cleaning is easy if you invest in cleaning balls ( wmf sells them) and i found that freshly ground coffee makes it worthwhile. . What i do not understand is the price. I bought mine in germany and it’s nearly half price.I can’t imagine that it increases the value just by hopping over the channel.

    Very happy with it, quick delivery.

    I’ve been looking for one of these for years. I bought it for my dad’s birthday. Good price, better than buying from bodum.

    An attractive object and fun to watch. I have tried this with three different grinds of coffee: filter, cafetiere and espresso. The first two were medium roast and the last was dark roast. All gave excellent coffee with minimum sediment. To get the strength from the filter and cafetiere coffees, i added one extra scoop, but that’s a matter of taste. The process will always leave some water in the lower pot (i’m guessing about 100 ml), so the coffee flowing back in will immediately be diluted a little. What’s in the box: the two-part glass coffee maker with a plastic handle, a coffee scoop, a plastic lid for the upper pot, a plastic stand that holds the upper pot when not in use. The glass feels delicate, so best to be a bit careful when cleaning it.

    Makes excellent and smooth coffee, fully recommend.

    Bodum Pebo 8-Cup Vacuum Coffee Maker – 1 L/34 oz

    Although i haven’t even bought my bodum pebo on amazon (picked it up at a sale. ) i thought it’s time that i came out in defense of this plucky coffee maker given all the other reviewsdon’t be fooled – most of these really reflect user error. Will it break as soon as i put it on the heat?. But make sure there’s no water left on outside from filling. Like most other things – particularly with two left handsi have owned mine for half a year and have always washed it up by hand.

    This device looks like a cona machine but does not cost in excess of three hundred pounds. It is simple to use and produces a good, clear, grounds free coffee.

    My girlfriend told me on saturday that while in japan she enjoyed drinking coffee that was made with a “glass tube and chain” system. We then found out that it was called a syphon and that bodum made it. The beauty of amazon is that in less than 24 hours we had one delivered. It is a thing of beauty, certainly not portable, but it is fun, quick to prepare and easy to clean. The coffee it makes (we used kimbo coffee ground for a moka), and it takes just 5 minutes on our electric hob, is rounded and complex and not burnt like an italian moka tends to taste like, more like a neapolitan cuccuma, but less bitter than an espresso and less watery than a french press. It also makes a large quantity of coffee which can be useful when one has guests or a large breakfast table to serve. Highly recommended, just be careful not to drop it and handle it with care when washing it as, being it made of glass, it could shatter.

    Medium-fine grind, you get coffee with almost 0 particles. It’s interesting and fun to look at (didn’t think that i’d ever say that about a coffee maker) and everyone who comes over for coffee studies it or atleast asks about how it works once. The big problem here is the material choice. It being glass is cool cause it looks slick and it is transparent. That’s nice, however, glass is brittle as all hell. You better be as ginger with it as with a newborn child beacause if you bang it on any hard surface that beuatiful glass baloon is gonna shatter into a million pieces and you’ll wanna jump through a window. I’d know cause i broke two and finding a replacement top part is a nightmare. Seriously consider your other choices like a french press or something.

    Makes the best standard coffee i’ve tried , unfortunately the top part broke.

    Excellent service and product.

    Very stylish product, works very well but only one issue it will block up if too fine a grind is used.

    Takes me back a few years to be old con a coffee maker which my husband used to brew tea in . Very pleased with it on the whole, but when there are coffee grounds in the top section there is a tendency to r it to be wobbly on the bottom section. So be careful how you move the two pieces when they are joined together like the flavour of the coffee it does not taste stewed as a cafeteria of coffee can be.

    Better than french press but too big to make any sort of consistent coffee if you’re not planning to use half a bag of coffee at once. Use it in an office environment, where you have many people to make coffee for.

    I’m a coffee snob, there, i admitted it. At the moment i have six different implements for making coffee and i use them all (though not necessarily at the same time). I have three different coffees for the different implements. I bought this chappy about six months ago and it made excellent coffee. The only thing i didn’t like about it is the spring filter thingy, it’s crap. I got a cory glass filter rod on ebay, they’re only available in the us and you can pick one up for about £20 inc. The difference this makes is immense and it’s well worth getting one, the coffee goes from excellent to superb. This is the method that works for me:boil the kettle. Spoon out one measure of coffee per cup, the grind should be for or just slightly coarser than what you’d use for filter.

    Makes the best tasting coffee possible. When paired with a milk frother you can make coffees as good as the best coffee shops.

    Since i was a kid my parents would make coffee in one of these, i always loved the taste of the coffee and now i get to own this stunning coffee maker.

    Had this for a year now, and am comfortable that i know this thing in and out, so writing a reviewthe glass is strong enough to withstand minor impacts, and really heat resistant, to the point that i did put it on pretty high heat stovetop while filled with water, or on lower heat while still empty, and it’s still performing strong. Tweaks i recently applied and improved the coffee maker:1) gasket that locks in the upper chamber to the lower chamber: in my opinion is a little too large, this results in too much water always remaining in the lower chamber even at full boil. What i did was simply slice off about half cm from the top of the gasket. As a result i can now push it further up and the upper chamber sits slightly lower, so less water remains in the lower chamber. Careful tho: if you slice too much and no water at all remains in the lower chamber, you risk to overheat and therefore heat damage/crack the lower chamber. 2) filter: no matter what, if my coffee wasn’t really coarse, the filter would clog and the vacuum effect would stop working, resulting in my coffee sitting in the upper chamber for way too long, sometimes nearly 10 minutes. I applied a cloth filter (paper filters would also work), and i never experenced clogging since—————-note: in my experience (this is the reason why i don’t give this product 5 stars) the upper chamber during extraction sits in the vicinity of 87°c, while perfect extraction is supposed to happen around 92/94°c. So far i tried to cover the coffee maker with it’s own cap as well as with a cloth in an attempt to retain a little more heat, but i couldn’t fix it. Note that i rarely use it for more than 0. 5l, while this is made for 1l of coffee, and i noticed when i once did only 0.

    Was very pleased with this product and would recommend to anyone.

    . Bought it because i broke my old cona. . And is just as successful. Definitely the way to get the best taste from your coffee.

    Would get 5 stars if they included a brush to clean it, and took a few dollars off the price. Seriously overpriced for a little bit of glass and plastic.

    I bought this just before christmas so it’s been in constant use for the last 3 1/2 months. I’ve been through many different coffee makers over the years and for my particular tastes this is the best. No, it won’t make you an espresso but if the thing you are after is the best ‘long’ coffee you can get then i think this device takes some beating. It gives the depth of flavour of a french press except without the sludgey bits – very clean and zingy. It’s marginally slower to use than a french press but much quicker than a filter machine and i think the results are far superior. When i use it, i actually boil the kettle and put boiling water straight into the bottom jug. I then put the coffee-loaded upper funnel into the bottom jug and turn the gas on. The water immediately rises into the top jug and starts bubbling. I (carefully, it’s top heavy) give the brewing coffee a stir then i turn the heat down as low as it’ll go and give it exactly 3 minutes. At that point, it’s off with the heat and remove the jug to a heatproof trivet.

    I have got the knack with this coffee maker, it is an integral part of my morning routine, i cannot imagine a superior cup of coffee – certainly not about to hang around with a pack of civets waiting for their bowel movements. The chain for the filter soon broke after purchase which i would assume is due to being positioned right next the heat source during use. Now i simply keep a latch hook with the kit now so there’s no inconvenience, in fact less so, it’s easier to use – today however another part came off, roughly half of that end piece and so it portents the time when there will finally be nothing capable of hanging and tensioning the spring around the upper bowl spout lip – and i am most shocked at the replacement price knowing how soon it will fall into disrepair. I am not using this device like it’s a novelty, but still only averaging once a day, so i would expect it to perform and endure at least on a par with a decent cafetière (and where equivalent priced units ought to last forever).
