Bottom Line: A very nice, affordable intro into vac brewing
Positive Product Points

Elegant and attractive, very impressive!
Makes great coffee.
Nice after dinner showpiece.

Negative Product Points

Easily breakable- I haven't broken mine yet, but I'm very careful.
Takes a long time to brew a pot.
Not easy to clean.

Detailed Commentary

I like the Hario, they make a very clean, flavorful cup of coffee.  I think the Cona brewer is a little more elegant, but it is also $130+!  So This one is a great way to step into Vac pot brewing.

It does take some time to brew, the alcohol burner supplied is not real powerful.  It will boil, but it takes about 20 minutes.  I always start by pouring boiling water in the lower pot instead of cold.  This helps cut the time about half.  You can buy a small bunsen burner made for this, but it's around $40.

The glass on the top feels thin, I haven't broken mine yet, but I cringe every time I use it.  Especially when I'm seperating the 2 halves, they tend to get stuck together and take a little force and twisting to seperate.

Buying Experience

I've never had anything but great service from Sweet Marias!
