These work great for the pre-ground coffee I have, but my electric grinder grinds the beans far too fine even on the coarsest setting.  Now I'm shopping for a new grinder (damn enablers!). Biggrin

You are starting up a slippery slope

Im in the same boat!

I'm shopping new grinders as well....

Any recommendations guys?

But I will say I'm more than pleased with the pour over.

The ceramic? I just got one but haven't used it yet. Decided on this rather than the Bee House as I'm familiar with plastic Melittas and their single hole.

Budget?

The Baratza lineup is very good. The Encore is $129 and the new Sette for $279 is looking to be an excellent option and will even grind directly into your pour over.

For under $100 there is a Capresso Infinity that my co-worker is pleased with. Not as good for French press as the Baratza though.

The "Handybrew" pour over in the OP is no longer stocked at Sweet Marias.  Glad I bought the 2-4-1 when I did.

French Press all the way.  My 30 year old Melior has a silk screen in addition to metal screen.  No plastic taste.  Easy to clean.  Best flavor and easiest to control tsaste by brewing length of time.  I like Chemex but too weak for me unless I use tons of coffee and its stronger but not the fullness of flavor you get by just lengthening brewing time.

see which method you use in 25 years. I'll bet on French Press
