Looks neat, I called Espresso Supply (Bonavita's new distributor) and they said to check back in early Feb to find out when it will be available.

In the mean time, does anyone know if there's a good gold filter that fits in a CCD?

Took another look at the large Espro and it occured to me that it could possibly be used as a French Pull if the coffee was placed inside the basket.

Is this a horrible idea?  Can it be easily disassembled and cleaned out if used 'in reverse' of how it is designed?

PTI, but why not do what we vac pot folks do, and just decant into Nissan or other thermal carafe?
Whatever sediment might get in there would sure sink to the bottom in less than 30 seconds.

Trying to minimize the number of items in the coffee arsenal to keep the wife happy.

=)

As the Espro is 'pretty' and insulated it seems that it can serve as an excellent thermal decanter for serving coffee with, so long as I can get the coffee out of it and stop it from getting bitter.

Another possible option is the Sowden SoftBrew but it's not insulated.

The large Espro press could definitely be used as a pull but there could be some issues.

The top 3 cm of the Espro flares outward in a funnel shape and any coffee grounds that do not stay in the basket could stick here and then drop back down into the coffee or be washed into your cup when pouring.

It will be difficult to keep the basket and gasket perfectly level for the final few inches of the extraction. When inserting the basket I like to rest my hand on the handle so I can use my fingers to precisely guide the shaft. You would not be able to use this technique when removing the grounds from your coffee unless you wore gloves, since the shaft will be to hot to touch.

You could eliminate these issues if you did not lower the top of the basket below the surface of the water, but it would likely greatly extend the extraction time required. This might work but I have no problems with bitterness using the normal Espro press method, even if I let some of the coffee sit for an hour. The isolation provided the double filtering, sediment layers and thin layer of coffee is quit amazing.
