Thanks, Mark, for the updated Gift List. I use it as a starting point when I am contemplating an upgrade. (Yes, I use the Gift List for myself, too!) For example, I used your updated list to help me select a new grinder, to accompany my new Breville Dual Boiler. I do not rely on a single recommendation, but it makes an excellent starting point to dig deeper.
A "Best in Category" guide is very helpful, since I'm otherwise unable to sort through all of the CoffeeGeek data and reviews to find a collective, ranking. (Hints on how to achieve this? New CoffeeGeek feature?)
