Just curious about what has swayed saesoned chemex users to select one chemex type over the other. Have you found any differences in coffee produced by one as opposed to the other? What made you choose one over the other: Convenience? Clean-up? looks? Durability? For discussion purposes, I am not distinguishing between the hand-blown and machine made wood collar models, but maybe I should be.

I have a machine made model with the wooden collar. it looks cool and works fine as long as it's tied on firmly. I suspect the model with a handle would be a bit more convenient to pour from. I'm happy enough with mine. I doubt there's any difference in brew quality.
