Topic: New coffee making additions (2 msgs / 43 lines)
1) From: George Miller
I recently finally received my latest coffee craze additions. 
First was a Bodum 12 cup stainless steel thermal press (already had a glass 
4 cup or so press).  Made a couple of pots so far with it and coffee tastes 
great. 
The second was a Panorama Window Micom Electric Dispensing Pot - 169 ounce 
unit.  Boy has improved my coffee drinking experience a lot.  Before I was 
using a cheap 4 cup drip maker for small amounts of coffee most of the time 
as I hated bringing out the electric hot water pot to heat a couple of cups 
of water and the time it took to heat the water then make a press pot or an 
Aeropress when rushed for work.  Now that 4 cup maker sees no usage and is 
off the shelf with the 10 cup one.  Now I'm making AeroPress or french press 
for small amounts, a Bodum vacuum unit for making coffee for work thermos 
and the travel mug, and the 10 cup Bodum stainless press for weekends at 
home (when I want only one type of bean for the day). 
I guess my next purchase will have to be a Technivorm.  That will round out 
my coffee equipment nicely.  I still haven't gotten into espresso, so I 
guess I'll just have to put all that money into greens instead.

Oops forgot I finally got a decent grinder, it's a Solis Maestro Plus.  This 
mill is a huge upgrade from any I have had before, more consistent grind, no 
powder, and a good range of grind.  I can finally use a finer grind for my 
coffee without having to deal with tons of powder.  Oh, what a difference in 
the brew.
