Mark,

It's a great list, but why wasn't the Behmor Brazen included in the list?!

Or LIDO?....seems to be getting fair praise around here and HB lately.  Mine is in the mail (can't unwrap until Christmas)

.......I am seriously having trouble not getting the HG-One.  I see it everywhere. Thanks for putting it square at the top of this list just to taunt me.

I considered adding the Lido grinder from OE, but in the end, the one I wanted to list was the Pharos, which is not currently available.

Good tip for the forum comments. But for the articles, I have to link to companies that are advertising supporters of CoffeeGeek where I can ;)

Two gifts that I wouldn't mind seeing under the Christmas tree, just a smidgen above the $75 gifting group:


1st, Double wall press from Hario.  All of Hario's equipment is so well crafted.  $80 from Prima Coffee in Louisville.   Prima's customer service is tops.
