I have to say the name of this product is somewhat funny to me. I am starting to think that questions like MP's were somewhat what the maker was going for... :P

Hahaha!  I was going to find a video for mp, but it scares me to think what might come up.

I will be making a detailed video review soon.

What I can say right now is that it is an impressive machine with an equally impressive build quality.

Here is where the name comes from.

I see. So you don't need to filter the various coffee grind fines to get the most ideal grind beforehand?

It's more complicated than that.

For starters you have 2 (maybe 3) different ways to brew with this device and you can manipulate dwell times and/or drip rates independent of grind completely.

So there are loads of variations at your disposal.

I haven't seen or used the sifter so I can't compare them.

John, that was a bit of snark there with the sifter I believe.
It's like a super combo swiss gold / pour over / french press.

Change the drip rates is a good thing, sometimes you want a bit more extraction or a longer soak.  With a conventional you'd have to go oops, too fast, have to grind a bit finer next cup.  This one apparently you can crank it up and down to get where you need with less 'grounds' trial and error and just adjust the process on the fly really.  Im wondering tho, typically in pour over, one cupper setups, the drip problem is they clog or airlock and don't drip fast enough.  Does this have big 'nuff holes so you can get around that without the sharp slap on the counter with it?

Oh and if you decide to pass it around for folks to try and post about, I'd love to get on that list.

It has a series of openings that you can adjust from zero flow to fast flow by rotating it at any point during the brew.

So you can continously change from off to on fast/slow as often as you like and add water at any time so it is very adjustable regardless of the grind. So....after all of those adjustments you can also adjust the grid so it is the most adjustable set up I've ever seen.

Maybe I'll make a quick "how it works" vid before the review vid.
