Went to turn on my Black and Decker coffee maker and the light went on and nothing happened. Tried it again and still nothing. The light was on but no water was boiling out. The heat plate wasn't even working...SO in desperate need of a cup of coffee I had to get out the old Vacuum coffee maker :D

A good strong cup-O-joe if I remember right! We used to have one of those when I was younger.

I have never seen a coffee maker like that. Looks like it would make one hell of a strong cup of coffee.

A fellow who knows alot more about coffee than I do told me that those glass vacuum makers are the best way to make coffee. I use a percolator myself. Love it that way.

Great looking set up.

I remember my first cup of coffee. Out by the campfire with one of those old fashioned Aluminum perk units brewing over an open fire.

Hadn't seen one of those in awhile. Definitely can't start the day without a cup of coffee. Last time our coffee maker quit, we boiled water and put a filter and coffee in a funnel over the coffee pot. Was a little slow but we had our morning coffee.

Yes, it does make a great cup of coffee!
Everytime I use it I'm very careful when I clean the glass parts.... Looked for parts on the web and the price for parts is pretty steep.

There's good coffee, and there's better coffee. Bad coffee is when you ain't got any.

In all the years I have been drinking coffee, that is the first time i have ever seen a coffee pot like that! I can certainly share your concern ( panic!) when the regular coffee pot quit working!

Here's some history on the vacuum coffee makers.
I believe mine to be somewhere in the 1940's . Mine is a "Cory"

Thanks for the history lesson! That is neat. I never would have thought about making coffee that way! At home when I was a kid we had the old glass perculator type coffee maker always sitting on the stove. I have made lots of coffee while camping from an old aluminum peculator but never anything as fancy as those vacuum coffee makers.
