Wow, for something as simple as a vacuum pot, the diversity of experiences
with it is astonishing!

Sorry, Phil, sorry you've had a mess on your hands. I've seen some pretty
big blooms (the fresher the coffee, the bigger the bloom), but I've never

Thanks for sharing!

P.S., I'm with Pecan Jim: if it's not worth crying over, it's not worth
brewing. :)
