The Pebo coffee maker goes back to 1958, when Bodum came up with the vacuum coffee brewer called Santos. Three things make coffee vacuum brewing so effective – the coffee grounds and boiling water are entirely sealed off under heavy vapor pressure, aroma has no escape and every extractable molecule of coffee substance is extracted.
Strong vapor pressure, created by the boiling water in the lower glass bowl, pushes the water to the upper bowl where it mixes with the coffee grounds. When you remove Pebo from the heat, vacuum pressure will draw the brewed coffee down through a strainer, back into the bottom bowl. Now it is ready.
You can make between 6 to 8 cups, while observing the whole process through the clear heat-resistant glass, and the result is well worth the wait. Carafe comes with cool-touch handle and Pebo can be used on gas, electric or induction range tops. The dishwasher safe Bodum Pebo / Santos vacuum coffee brewer sells for about $90.
