This is my press. I didn't shop this for lowest price, I won mine from Unclebeanz. And love it, very durable.

Sooooo, coffee this morning in the ol Dripper. Sumatra Toba Batak Peaberry at FC. Very tasty. Notes of Vanilla and baking spice.

My wife and I enjoy using our Bodem on the weekends (we use our Kuereg during the week). We generally fill a pot with water and heat it on the stove then pour the hot water into the press. What method do you use for heating your water? I'm wondering if there may be a more efficient way of doing it.

I don't really try to think about resting times honestly. I roast about one 1/2lb batch a week and drink it every day until it's gone. So I get to see what it tastes like as it progresses over time. This Ethiopian just really blew me away with the flavor as i tend to gravitate towards the Colombian/Brazillian beans. And coming back from SA last week, I'm stuck on the liquid jet fuel they serve.

Very Nice. Does it hold the heat very well if you dont drink the whole pot right away?

Monday thru Friday I use my press at work. We have a Heated and cooled Alhambra water jug here. The Hot water is the perfect temp.
On the weekends, I use my press at home and heat my water in the microwave.

I don't know. It makes about 2 big cups, I pour one in my cup and the other into my thermal carafe. I don't leave it in the press, I heard that will make over strong, bitter coffee. But it is a nice thick ceramic, I'm guessing it might hold the heat for a little while.

Even though I said "if you dont drink the whole pot right away" the real reason I was asking if it held the heat is that during the winter, my warehouse gets real cold. My F.P. can loose alot of heat during the brew time. I am thinking about making some sort of insulated box out of styrofoam to put it in while it brews, LOL.

I see, makes sense. It should do pretty good for you. Better than that thin glass, one would think.

I've got a stainless steel press that holds the heat beautifully. I really like it. http://www.planetarydesign.us/catego...tion=tabletops
Frieling also makes one.

Now this looks like your ticket, Mr B :h5

I might have to pick up one if these. Been looking for one with a larger capacity. That 48oz looks about right.

Damn...received my order of 10 # of Negrita from Unclebeanz today. So much for roasting them on my own for fresh coffee as it was all roasted on 12/14.

Wow you got 10 pounds of roasted coffee? Sounds like you need to unload that quick as I doubt anybody could drink that much while it is still fresh.

Yeah, I sent him a PM about it. Invoice clearly shows the $7.00/lb price rather than the $11.15/lb price for roasted.

I'm sure it'll still be good coffee by the time I get around to it, but still, it's just the hassle of not roasting it myself and I might have gone perhaps a bit darker. It smells wonderful, but I might only get through 2# before it is no longer "fresh".

He already left me a voicemail from the message I sent. They're shipping out a batch today and wants me to keep a bag and then return the rest at his expense. I knew he'd take care of it, but he was lightning quick. Glad he's a member of the Asylum.

That is a HUGE bummer mistake for Norman :hn It is gonna cost him plenty to make this right.

Pressed a pot of the Costa Rican today, very nice, better body.

As mentioned above, he left me a VM within 30 minutes or so of me sending him an email from my invoice acknowledgment. Mistakes happen and while I'm bummed it happened, he's doing everything to take care of me and i wouldn't hesitate to order from him again in the future. :tu
