Subject: Glass/Stainless Steel Brewing?
 

I wonder, and hope so, apart from Chemex, is there a coffee maker in existence that has no plastic or rubber? Would appreciate any info and advice. I'm not a high end user, just a couple of cups per day, and am on limited income. Given that, what would you suggest for a coffee maker for me? Thx.

Hario also in Glass, Kalita in stainless, glass, ceramic.
Sowden brewer is immersion, ceramic with stainless filter. There are other ceramic type devices as well, and of course, an Ibrik for Turkish coffee.
And various metallic stove top "moka" makers.

You are not only saving money for an affordable coffeemaker, but you can also get away from plastic poison in a bottle called BPA (bisphenol-A). This BPA is a compound that can cause cancer when ingested even in a very small amount from almost everything that is made of plastic.

You can try Bodum Chambord 34-Ounce 8-cup French Coffee Maker. It is BPA free. It has metal parts and glass instead of plastic. You can try also a stainless Steel Percolator. The taste of the brew that comes from a percolator is between espresso and regular coffee. It has more bitter taste than the brew you get from French Press, but it is still good.

Taste sometimes may not be the basis to have a good coffee as long as it gives caffeine that we need.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

Please,  less  hyperbole. BPA is  present in  some clear  plastics.  Not "most"  plastics. Come  on  "poison"  in a bottle.  Scary  stuff.

The percolator I'll  give you  as  a matter  of  taste. Just  not  mine.  But generally boiling coffee is  to be  avoided.

It is poison in a bottle.  They crushed sample bottles that contained BPA and fed it to rats.  The rats died of intestinal bleeding.  Rats that were not fed the crushed sample bottles did not die.

In an interesting related experiment, rats who were fed crushed BPA-free glass bottles also died of intestinal bleeding.

Why thank you sir.

An equally valid experiment. Now I might  have  been concerned if  this had happened after drinking only bottled water (plastic bottled,  naturally).

I forgot to mention that the plastic bottles that contained BPA also were the color blue.  Were the BPA-free glass bottles ALSO the color blue?  HMMMM?
