Topic: Technivorm Convert (5 msgs / 100 lines)
1) From: Coffee
I just bought a Technivorm from Sweet Maria's. I was pretty satisfied  
with the coffee out of my old drip coffee maker, especially after I  
upgraded to a SwissGold filter (also purchased from Sweet Maria's ;-).  
It was not my favorite method of brew (The Vac Pot won the Great Can/ 
Am Brewer Throwdown), but the Technivorm is hugely better. I was  
hoping for an improvement, but I was surprised by how much better it  
is. I brewed a pot of Yemen Mokha Sharasi (C+). This has one of my  
favorite coffees in my short time roasting and I've tried it in the  
French Press, vac pot and my old drip brewer. But it's even better in  
the new Technivorm. I'm going to have to have a brew-off between the  
vac pot and the Technivorm... I'll do that tomorrow. I'll have my wife  
pour the cups so I'm not influenced by the "new shiny toy".

Peter,
Curious, have you done any other manual drip brewers, like a pour-over or a
chemex?  I recently acquired a chemex and it is interesting...

No Manual drip ... probably something I should try.
I don't have enough ways to brew coffee! ;-)
Technivorm KBTS
Cuisinart SS-1
Bodum Santos (non electric)
AeroPress
Ikea Moka Pot
Bodum French Presses (3 and 8 Tasse)
Andreja Premium
and a few others gathering dust on a shelf and still more that have  
been gifted/sold.
No, it's not an obsession...
