Was fun to watch while sipping my afternoon cup. Thanks for sharing!

I actually recognized a couple of those brewers although I wonder what type/brand of pourover that was with the insert that went into the filter? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_HPx_gRhtE&t=8m28s

Had to chuckle watching them scoop the ground coffee out of the big can. No mention of freshly ground.  It was also interesting seeing the cigars and cigarettes accompanying the coffee "scenes" at the end of the video. Talk about ruining the taste! Times sure have changed. Take care!

It was funny in the beginning when the person was measuring out the coffee with a metal tablespoon and getting about 1/2 of it on the counter.

I've seen it on eBay a few times, but I forgot the name of it. I've considered bidding a few times but never did.

Found it. It was made by Curtis and is just called a Curtis Coffee Maker. They also released a Bing Crosby branded one..which is the one I saw on eBay.
