OK, I've received a reply from Northwest Glass. It appears that when they first listed it on their website, they made the mistake of listing their price they pay Yama for the brewer, not their retail (or even wholesale) price. I assume they're honouring the old price for those who ordered it while it was listed that way, but the new $99 price stands.
That said, there are two important notes here. First, the filter's been improved since my preproduction unit's design. Second, it includes a second filter, a ceramic filter designed to let you brew cold coffee as well as hot (or tea).
I'll be listing this brewer in the Under $500 list later today.
