And if you happened to be a List cop it would be quite appropriate to point
out besides being bad manners it's against the List rules everyone agreed to
when they sign up.

Ultimately the quest for Koffee Nirvana is a solitary path. To know I must
first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

Not a list cop but linking a direct competitor to our gracious host seems a
bit thoughtless.

yrs.  I have a couple of items that I'd love to hear feedback on.  First the
roaster:   I've been roasting for about 7 yrs now, mostly with an iRoast2.
Generally, I prefer FC level and my favorite is Ethiopian dry processed to
capture the nice berry notes.  I also have a drum roaster that I built with
an RK drum for more capacity but rarely use it these days.  Only roasting
from 2 people and the iRoast every few days is less hassle than the drum
roaster.   I'm considering upgrade to a roaster with more capacity than the
iRoast (but easier and more convenient than drum roasting outdoors.  I'm
wondering if anyone on the list has tried the Hukey (correct spelling...
even though there's a picture of a Husky on the front!), a very nice
stainless roaster made in Taiwan.  I saw one of these in a shop in Portland
and was impressed with the workmanship and asthetics!  It believe it will
roast ~ 1 lb and looks like a

Taiwan occasionally and may be able to pick one up there and save some
bucks.  I'm also considering the Behmor.  Can anyone compare this roaster to
a Behmor?    If my roasts are (almost) always less than FC+ level and I like
the results of iRoast, will I be happy with Behmor and should I be looking
at others?  I'm hoping to spend less than a grand.

My wife prefers a French press (I usually use an aeropress), but she's
broken the glass on 3 pots now and it's getting a little expensive replacing
them!  I'm assuming the Sowden will be a very similar cup, about the same
cleanup and maybe a little less fragile than a French press.   I would
likely get the smallest size which is advertised as a 4 cup and wondering if
the filter goes all the way to the bottom and allows a small brew of only
~8-10 oz.
