We took this with us along with our Kitchenaid ProLine Grinder and we have just had a ball with this Bodum. It makes a clean cup, but I do miss the body of a French Press. We have really enjoyed the Ethiopian Yirg Shannon sold us, it just wreaks of blue berries.
Our little vacation to the mountains of South West Virginia (Jonesville, VA) has been fruitful. We have educated the masses on extremely fantastic coffees. Everybody just stares at our Bodum Santos!
