There are many different types of coffee makers and they can be divided into two main groups. One group which is getting more and more popular is the automatic coffee makers. As people are getting more busy with their lifestyles, they are opting for these automatic machines to help them save time and effort. The other group which is losing out to the automatic technology is the manual coffee makers. Lesser people are using these coffee makers as they require more time and skills to brew a good pot of coffee. Since now is the age of technology, people are less bothered about the manual methods when they can easily use an automatic coffee machine to brew a cup of good coffee.
If you are interested in using a manual coffee maker, you should check out the vacuum coffee makers. These coffee makers are shaped in a hourglass flask, with the bottom of the flask used for boiling the water. The top of the flask contain a ground coffee basket for collecting the ground coffee. You need to place the vacuum coffee maker on a stove to boil the water. As the water heats up, it expands and is forced through the narrow middle channel of the flask into the top of the flask. At there, the water will infuse with the ground coffee and the brewing begins. After all the water is sent to the top of the flask, you can remove the flask from the stove and it creates a vacuum at the bottom of the flask at the original position of the water. The vacuum creates a suction to draw the coffee back to the bottom of the flask. The coffee is ready and from there, you can pour out the coffee.
The vacuum coffee maker is a device which requires some coffee making experience to estimate the amount of water, ground coffee and the temperature of the water to ensure that it will be a good brew.
