Hi, all.  Saw this and thought it might be a great travel brewer.  The
review seems very positive.  Anyone have any experience with it or
know about the company or its other products?http://tinyurl.com/477nc--

There was some chatter about this maybe a year or so ago.  At the
time, there was only one store in the states that sold it (as best as
i could tell) and that was actually a chic bar in manhattan.  so i
stopped by to look at it.  it's cool.  it's basically a french press
where you pour instead of push down on the screen.  I didn't have the
cash to make a purchase, but i still want one.  they're just not so
easy to find.
cheers

Good.  That's certainly a change from the last time they came up on
the list.  Just know it's not going to be that different from a press.

Hi,
I have seen the thing, and I really like the idea with the "jacket" that
will hold the coffee warm during the time it takes to brew the coffee.
I really think that the drop in temperature is a major problem with standard
press pot especially when using the small ones.
It is the first design gagit I would like to buy sometimes in the future,
the only good reason I can think of is that it produces less mess than I can
produce if I am not  carefull with a normal press pot.

I agree that the Eva brewer looks really cool but I personally
couldn't justify the price.  I can utilize the same concept and get a
great cup by brewing in a preheated and covered stainless pitcher and
pouring off the grounds through my Swiss Gold one cup.  And it's a
great travel setup if you don't want to worry about breaking anything.
However, if you don't mind spending the money, the Eva would earn some
serious points for style and convenience.

Claus, the real term (at least in Scandinavian Minnesota) for a
"jacket" on an inanimate object like a toaster or mixer or other
kitchen object is a cozy.  The neoprene is actually a french press
cozy in my world.  Jared

10) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
I have been pondering the merits, and problems, of the eva solo 
brewer. It's a somewhere between a filter coffee (like chemex) and a 
french press; you mix gorunds and hot water in a glass flask, stir, 
wait 4 minutes, insert a filter that holds back the grounds when you 
pour, and there your have it. It has strenghts and weakenesses (if 
you want a second cup 20 minutes later, your coffee has also been 
steeping that long - not good). Price is an issue. It is very 
elegant, simple, well designed, but it is $75 to $80. The neoprene 
jacket, the main design element, lends itself to a bit of humor, not 
that I think its a bad thing. It works, and hey, coffee people can 
take a joke. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone on the list has the 
eva solo and uses it regularily. Of did anyone buy it and NOT like 
it. Thoughts?
Tom

A timely post;
I was looking at the Eva Solo just this morning; I was close to
ordering one. What stopped me was the cleanup. It looks like a bigger
pain then the Chemex but less of a pain than a press pot. Does it make
a good cup? I have only seen pictures of one, I am  not even sure what
the filter looks like. I will wait and see what others have to say.
How long would it be before they were in stock, Weeks? Months?

It's difficult to "say no" to something having such a great aesthetic,
but its entire coffee brewing principle is just wrong. Good design =
"form follows function," and this device, alas, has the cart before
the horse. "Let's have a second cup [of dreck], shall we?"   ;-)
The company makes a LOT of cool stuff -- some award winning:http://en.red-dot.org/279+M5be95f374d5.htmlNow if you could sell the Quack (not a Eva design) for under $50, I'd
be pleased:http://en.red-dot.org/273+M5f57ea60520.html;-)

The .6l will fill my 20oz mug so no dreck for me, unless the first cup is poop.

14) From: Ed Needham
I have several one cup glass Pyrex teapots.  I add coffee grinds, pour in
water and steep a few minutes, then pour through a fine mesh filter into a
warmed mug.  One cup of perfect brew.
I can easily compare coffees this way too.  It doesn't replace cupping but
it definitely makes it easy to sip each brew and compare.

Tom -- I've used a .6 liter Eva Solo for about 1 year; I purchased it hopin=

Eva Solo is a beautiful thing and very easy to clean -- I think it's much e=

into one of my  Thermos containers  (the "Backpack", purchased from you -- =
very nifty top.)  One REALLY great thing I discovered (and I'm quite proud =
of this):  the ES filter fits perfectly into the top of the Thermos BackPac=

 snugly.  This method makes a smaller quantity -- but it's perfect for 1 cu=
