Fabulous coffee, quick + easy, inexpensive to buy, cool vintage look, easy to clean, no filters to replace

Watch grind to ensure proper pulldown, thin borosilicate glass seems sturdy but makes me nervous

Detailed Commentary

Great coffee and a floor show- these are just flat-out fun to use. I never get tired of watching this thing work, and the coffee tastes great. I'd considered buying a Cona D before picking this one up for less than 1/10th the price at a local antique store, and I couldn't be happier. I tracked down a matching vintage Cory DEO stove made for these, faster, cooler, + cheaper than butane or alcohol burners made for these.

You'll need to adjust your grind to ensure proper pulldown- these won't stall out with a proper grind and a good seal. New, food-grade silicone gaskets are available for around $25, and I assumed I'd need one as mine was hard as a rock. After one use, though, it turned nice and supple and is working great. I'd expect that the gasketless models would be a bit trickier to ensure a good seal.

Wish I'd bought one years ago!
