Subject: Bodum Electric Santos Brewing Question
Hello. I dug out my Bodum Electric Santos for use for a weekend BBQ I
am having at our home. I haven't used it for such a long time that I
have forgotten the best coffee ground to water ratio for this quirky
coffee maker.

Per 8 oz. of water, what is the best amount of grinds to use? (in
tablespoons please)

I will be using a Bolivian bean roasted to Full City +, fine grind.

And while I am at it, I have a programmable Percolator (heavens no!)
that I will be using for DeCaf. Not a big one, just your standard
home perc. Anyone have the ratio of coffee grounds to water for
that? DeCaf for that is Indian Monsooned, roasted to Vienna roast.

FYI: This party will be comprised of the relatives and some close
friends. The friends will get Brikka, French Press, or Aeropressed.

I think you know where I'm coming from.

Thanks much,

Len

You can try filing off the bottom of the funnel and see how many
minutes it extends the 'up north' time. I filed off about 2 mm and it
is good for about 2.5 mins. YMMV

Does anyone else worry about the material. They say Nylon breaks down
at 180 degrees. I feel funny using any plastic parts in my coffee
making.

Thanks, I will give that a try. Makes sense.

Thanks. I personally don't like the Bodum Santos Electric (I feel it
does not allow the grinds enough time to steep); it's design is
definitely modern however.

Thanks for the info.

I love my E-Santos. I have them in both sizes.

There is a trick to solve your problem. Put a coin, a chopstick or
some other stable object under the front of the machine. This will
tilt it back and leave the sensor covered with water for a longer
period, which delays the cutoff.

Hello Marshall. 2 tablespoons per 6 oz water for brewing, correct?
And that is just for the Bodum? Any thoughts on the Perc?

Thanks,
Len

It's the standard for most non-espresso methods. You can adjust a bit
up or down for taste. But, if you use much less, you will wind up
either with a thin brew, or (if you grind very finely to compensate)
one that is bitter from over-extraction.
