The Pebo Vacuum Coffee Maker, designed by Peter Bodum in 1950, is a Danish-designed, stovetop coffee maker that uses a vacuum method to brew gourmet coffee. This coffee maker offers an entertaining and visually appealing way of brewing that creates an appetizing treat for you and your guests. Once placed on an electric or gas stove, the water boils up into the upper globe to saturate the coffee grounds. After removing the coffee maker from the heat source and placing it on its trivet, the coffee filters down through the tube and into the carafe. The vacuum process produces exceptional coffee that retains its natural oils, unlike most coffees made in the conventional coffee maker. Brew superior gourmet coffee with the Pebo Vacuum Coffee Maker!
