I'm enjoying a Rwandan this morning, and  channel surfing the TV ... when I
get to TCM and spy an old movie where a Vacuum Pot is brewing coffee.

The movie, "The Skipper Surprised His Wife" from 1950, stars Robert Walker &
Joan Leslie.  "A Navy Commander runs a tight ship at home while his wife
nurses a broken leg."  

A comedy, he tries to keep everything ship-shape, with some predicable
disastrous results.

At least he was brewing coffee correctly -- 55 years ago.
