Vacuum coffee machines have been around from 1840s, since it was invented by Robert Napier in France. It became very popular in US from after the first world war to the 1950s. Now, it is making a come back.
The big names for vacuum coffee machines are Silex, Cory, Cona, Bodum and Yama. They used to thrilled Americans with their quality brewed and great tasting filter coffee but after the 1950's, sales and market share has been badly affected by the easy to use drip coffee makers and then the instant coffee.
However, as folks are now increasingly more particular about the quality of their coffee, vacuum coffee machines is getting a revival and is winning back some market share.
Other than the demand shift, the little innovation of the vacuum coffee maker itself, by making it more convenient is also a factor in leading more purchases.
The simple thing of allowing the vacuum coffee machines, i.e. Bodum 3000 to brew using electricity, make it so much more convenient, opening the market share to people looking for ease of use.
