Vacuum Coffee Maker Uses Laws of Physics, Extracts All Coffee Aroma
By Anthea Quay, 07 May 2012
BODUM has minted a coffee maker that uses ‘vacuum’ to make coffee in a fascinating and elaborate way—much like a science experiment—to extracts all the oils and aroma of your coffee.
Called the ‘PEBO’, the vacuum coffee maker made of two borosilicate glass bowls requires a burner to heat the bottom vessel that gets the water boiling.
Because of vacuum physics, as the water heats up, the water vapors make their way up toward the coffee grounds.
When the heat is turned off, the coffee liquid follows the rules of gravity and returns back to the bottom vessel—and your coffee is ready for consumption!
In addition to its visual appeal, the PEBO vacuum coffee maker’s design also serves as functional—as the vacuum brewing process is entirely sealed off and contained, the oils of your coffee are ensured to be fully extracted as it is brewed, and no aroma can escape.
It takes approximately 5 to 11 minutes for PEBO to brew 4 to 9 cups of coffee.
The BODUM PEBO (also known as SANTOS) vacuum coffee maker is retailing at US$75.95 here.
