Oh! the Panama coffee seems the best of both worlds to me. Island and
Central!  I am enjoying the last of my Mexican Oaxaca Hildalgo as I
type.  I light city roasted and am having an Americano with plain
whipped cream on top.  A very nice rich coffee with chocolate over
tones.  With the whipped cream it is like malted chocolate!  I am
going to roast some Bugisu this afternoon and some Panama 1700-1800
from last year.  I got to get the stash down in anticipation!

I'm going to have to try some from Panama when it comes in.  Otherwise, I'm
not purchasing any new coffee for a while.
I roasted some Bugisu yesterday and tried Les' suggestion of a 12 hour
rest.  I did a drip pot of it this morning and the chocolate was deep and
dark.

What's a good drip pot to go with?

I have an old Braun cone filter drip pot.  I've toyed with the idea of
getting a Technivorm, but it seems a little pricey since my $30 pot is doin=
g
fine.  I've heard mixed reviews about the Presto Scandanavian: good coffee,
cheaply made.  I'd be interested in hearing about a good drip pot myself.

Lots of good reviews for the Presto Scandinavian, available online at  
Target and Amazon, around $40. I'd heard it recommended in several  
places, so I've recommended it to others and they've reported great  
satisfaction back to me.

Bottom Line:
If it ain't busted, why fix it? What is the brewing temperature of your
Braun, and how long do the hot water and the coffee grounds cohabit before
passing the filter into the carafe?
"I'd be interested in hearing about a good drip pot myself."
The brew temperature is not as high as the water temperature as dispensed
into the brew basket. The basket, filter and grounds start cold in  =
drip
maker.
Even the TechniVorm, which cranks out exactly 200 degree hot water, does no=
t
brew at 200. I've found the actual brew temperature to be no higher than 19=
0
degrees. Whodathunkit?
There is no drip brewer that actually controls the soak time of water/
grounds. The TV is eminently controllable for soak time if you watch it, an=
d
why not? But the 200 degree brew temperature doesn't exist. From the initia=
l
200 degrees out the arm, everything absorbs heat and the brew cools off.
The E61 group in espresso machines is linked to the boiler's heat by therma=
l
convection. Part of the procedure consists of preheating the PF, basket and
tamper, dose and pack. Apart from the packing, a similar scheme could reall=
y
light up drip brewing.
