Bodum Santos/Pebo

I have a stovetop Bodum Santos (now Pebo) and like it. Its tons of fun at parties. Its best to use a course grind, and importantly to allow the brewing to take one minute. That is, after the water is in the top, turn down the heat but don't turn it off until the top has churned for a minute. This helps a lot when the coffee is "vacuumed" back down. Otherwise, the filter clogs easily. I do wish Bodum would come back out with their electric version, especially the smaller of the two versions...
