  1. We didn’t see the coffee maker enough in order to know which part he connected with which other part. We don’t know how exactly he used it but the principles he talked about can actually work, although there are easier methods of obtaining a coffee which tastes just as great.
    Gale uses a brewing method at a reduced pressure and a reduced temperature. Both the reduced partial pressure of oxygen and the reduced temperature hinder oxidation of some of the constituents of coffee. The reduced pressure allows for the water to boil at a reduced temperature. He carefully adjusted the pressure so that water would boil at 92 °C. Boiling is useful so that you can quickly extract the right amount of tannins and gallic acid.
    There are ways to achieve the same process at home with a much more convenient apparatus. All you need is a multi-story pressure cooker as is commonly used in South Asian cuisine. One story inside would be filled with boiling water which saturates the atmosphere inside and reduces the partial pressure of oxygen, the other story would be used for actually brewing the coffee.
