I have been home roasting for two and a half years. I have used the AP exclusively for most of that time. Recently I decided to try a Vacuum Pot after reading all the good feedback from the board. I ordered a Yama 8 cup from SM and use the cloth filter. I have tried it about 8-10 times. I have been very disappointed in the results. It seems to give me a flavor I don't seem to have using the AP. The best I can describe it is sour. I roast using the Behmor and grind using a Baratza Virtuoso. I use a grind setting of 30. (For those of you who have one.) All the coffee is roasted to City+; (at least that is what I believe it is.) All are either South or Central American coffees. My draw down times are in the 1 1/2 to 2 min. range. I put the top on just as it starts to boil and the water rises within a few seconds. I stir one time after the water has risen to the top and let it brew for 30 sec to one min.
I need help-advice! I would really like to use the Vacuum pot on those days I want to serve more than the one cup at a time my AP makes.
Thanks for any suggestions,
