We haven't done the list your brewing devices in some time so since Brett
started it I'll join in:
Fiorenzato Bricoletta (rotary leverette)
Bodum Electric Vac (back to using 50oz, 3rd 25oz sprang leak)
Royal Versailles Gold Plated Balance Vac (table centerpiece, entertaining)
32oz Bodum Chambord FP (with Swissgold plunger)
Four 12oz Bodum Chambord FP (all with Swissgold plungers, primarily
cuppings)
32oz Bodum Brazil FP (for travel)
32oz Swissgold Prestige FP (still in box, backup or future gift)
24oz Swissgold Prestige FP (Debi uses at work)
6tasse Bialetti Cherry Moka Pot
.5L Copper Ibrik
Costa Rican Peasant Choreador (coffee sock on plain wire stand)
40oz blue speckled enamaled Cowboy Coffee Pot
Krups Il Caffe Presso Combo Drip Steamtoy (shelf in garage)
30cup Westbend Perc'(shelf in garage)
54cup Westbend Perc'      "
Nope, cant' find a SM5k hiding anywhere
Oh, since SM5k includes built in grinder:
Mazzer Super Jolly
Rocky
Zassenhaus Turkish
La Pavoni whirly chop (never been used for coffee, spices only)
Mortar & Pestle (ok, never used for coffee either)

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

I give up Mike. I can't keep up with you. You have the most toys. I have 3 
roasters though. A Z&D, I-roast and hottop. You can't count your multiple 
Rostos more than once.

3) From: B. Scott Harroff
Not sure, but I think Mike is saying he likes coffee.
Could be wrong though.

4) From: Brett Mason
OK, that reminded me...
I forgot to include my camping coffee percolator, and my 48 cup percolator.
Is your Royal Versailles Gold Plated Balance Vac as good as I always
thought it would be?  I love my Cory vacpot, and have always wondered
about the Royals I have seen out there.
Brewers I have had, but have gotten rid of include:
  Braun Espresso (Steam Toy)
  Cuisinart Grind-N-Brew-Cleanup for another 10 minutes
  Microwave Coffee percolator
  Mr. Coffee (several)
  Bunn Coffee maker of some sort (always hot)
  Starbucks Barista (Saeco Classico - $2 at a yard sale!!!!)
Now you mentioned grinders, so... Here's my current list:
  Zassenhaus 499 - my favorite
  Zassenhaus 126 - an older box mill, on my desk at the office
      Several other Zasses purchased and given away as gifts
  Melitta whirlygig - on my desk at the office also
  Cory electric burr mill (1950's) - standard daily grind
  Rocky doserless - sits with Miss Silvia for my espressos
Roasters...
  Hamilton Beach Poppaire II
      (several other hot air poppers all given away)
  Whirley-Pop - gave away 2 of
  Heat Gun 7 SS Dog Bowl
  Revereware 12" SS Skillet
  SS Drum (homemade) with RNKyle motor
     (Always Recommend the RNKyle stuff - he does it best!)
But someone mentioned toys,a nd these are necessities, not toys...

Since we're allowed to make corrections that 54cup perc' is actually a
55cup. (just got it down and cleaned it for Debi to take to her work
retreat)
Royal brewing wise PNWGI we did a comparison brewing with Wandering John's
Cona-D, virtually identical in the cup.

Barry I am too lazy to list all of my stuff!  Besides, I don't want
Becky to have a written record!

OK mine'll seem weak, but as a rule i dont use ANY auto machines, i cant
stand autodrip coffeepots no matter how good they may be, they take the sou=
l
out of coffe in my opinion
Current brewers:
12 cup Bodum Press Pot
8 cup bodum Press Pot
1 Chemex 12 cup
1 5 cup YAMA vac pot
1 Spidem Trevi Plus Espresso Machine (on route)
2 moka pots, 1 hex design in stoage, 1 really cool stainless in use
1 Krups Electric tea Kettle, Hot water fast for Press Pots
Roaster
Hot air Popper, Stainless Colendar, Wooden Spoon (eyes, ears, nose)
In the coffee graveyard
at least 7 Press pots lost to breakage
1 Chemex 8 cup dropped
4 poppers may they rest in peace
I hope to get a KMB someday reading up about them and they seem interesting=
,
also would love a Lever espresso machine someday.
