Thank you!

True. They were glad to knock off quite a bit when I bought the Brasilia and included a lot of extras in the deal. Their tech department is great at helping and sending parts diagrams.

It was on sale and then got another 10% off, came to $444.69.

This was such a cool experience, reminded me of how you guys helped take my cigar hobby to the next level many years ago at CS. Thank you all.

Now, just need to read up on proper ratio of grinds to water for coffee, get some decent beans, etc.

Do any of you guys make coffee at home from a drip machine out of curiosity?

Me thinks I have a new hobby!

When I am ready to make the espresso machine purchase, I will most definitely be using this place....

Had enough points on my AMEX to get the Technivorm for free!

Does anybody here recommend the Swiss Gold filters?

I am surprised you are not going to use a French Press and Thermos. You get the advantages of keep coffee warm, yet the quality of the French Press coffee. No filters or electricity.

I fill a Thermos up and pour the rest as my first cup.

I am definitely going to play around with the french press. The problem is the wife gets up earlier, and gets the coffee on. Tough enough time to get her to grind ("I have to grind?"), hence the Technivorm. I am the coffee person on the weekends, where I intend to "play" more.

But I wanted to make the upfront investment on a top of the line grinder, as it seems to be the foundation of it all.
