I don't think I posted this to this thread before, but I found an old fashioned fireplace popcorn popper years ago at a thrift store that I keep in my tent trailer.  I got to use it this past weekend with some Ethiopia Haro Sana and it turned out great.

I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Eric's post reminded me of a Newco plumb in drip brewer at Salvation Army for $20 but it needs a new control board :( but they had brand new, unused glass pots for commercial machines at a buck each, I picked up 6 for all of my other drip machines.

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!
