4. Vacuum Coffee Maker

Drip coffee is elementary. French press = Meh. Bodum’s glass vacuum coffee maker FTW!

Wikipedia Describes how this works:

The principle of a vacuum coffee maker is to heat water in the lower vessel of the brewer until expansion forces the contents through a narrow tube into an upper vessel containing coffee grounds. When the lower vessel has more or less emptied itself and enough time has elapsed, the heat is removed and the resulting vacuum will draw the brewed coffee through a strainer back into the lower chamber from which it can be decanted. The device must usually be taken apart to pour out the coffee.
