Vacuum Extraction

I bought a Nicro vacuum coffee pot on eBay and enjoy it every day. I was concerned that it might boil the grounds, like a percolator, but it doesn’t. I measured he water temperature at 190 degrees Fahrenheit (88 C), which is the optimum extraction temperature. The flavor is released but bitter oils are not. I prefer fresh-roasted Tanzanian peaberry, but have switched to Fair Trade Certified.
