Vintage Cory Glass Filter Rod in Box for Coffee or Tea Makers | eBay

I suggested using a vintage Cory glass filter rod with the Hario for more luxury; how about trying it with the Bodum for just a little more luxury? There are always plenty of Cory filters on eBay, so like an impatient fool I bid higher than I should have for one that was New In Box. OK, glass can be easily made clean and sterile, so what difference does it make whether it’s new and now what am I going to do with the box? Keep it forever in case I need to sell it back on eBay? But I want to keep it! Anyway, here’s the picture:

To install, you take the old one out and put it somewhere (in the trash, hopefully) and just place the Cory glass filter rod in the opening in the top globe. Start heating the water in the lower globe by itself on the stove, and add the grounds around the filter. Nothing could be easier. Put the top globe on, wait for the water to expand into it and let it gurgle for a minute or two. The glass rod gives it even more of the desired mad chemist look:

Vintage Cory Glass Filter Rod Makes the Vacuum Coffeemaker Perfect

You may all already know this, but I was so please to discover it myself that I thought I'd share.  I got a set of three Cory glass filter rods off of ebay about a month ago ($12), hoping that they'd work in my 5-cup Yama vac pot.  I'm pleased to report that the glass rods are an excellent substitute for the (pain-in-the-butt) cloth filters, which always seem to be in need of a cleaning and a lot of special care (not to mention costing about a buck a piece!).
   
  The Cory rods that I'm using are three different sizes (7, 8, and 2 I think), and all three work great.  The only difference is that the coffee is a bit milder, I assume because the water is being sucked directly only through a very small surface area of grounds instead of being pulled through the cloth filter in the numerous places where there are holes in the filter holder.  I prefer the cup I get with the glass filter, and have been amazed that grounds almost never find their way into the coffee.
