Sounds like you re getting yourself stuck between a ROK and a hard place :)

That has never changed. I received a Kone 1 and couldn't get a decent cup from it. It was worse than what I had feared. What I had feared was that it was just an overpriced Swiss gold/frieling gold. What it is, a good coffee ruiner.

Normally I would say I love mine and how improved the coffee is by it, but y'all know how I hate to jack a perfectly good thread.

Some people love coffee-mate and Brown/natural filters too ;). It's funny I noticed, a kone at InterAmerican a few months ago. I asked them how they liked it? A few of the cuppers/traders that were there had the same opinion as me. But they have so many much better options nowadays...I bought a $5 pour over filter with stand on sale at Amazon. It has a Swiss gold style foil exterior in the same size and shape of a kone with a mesh screen on the inside. It makes excellent coffee, but so does my plastic Melita pour over with a white filter.

so it sounds like there is a kone ucopia of brewers to choose from.
I actually like the swiss gold, I really don't like paper filters, I like it ALL in my coffee, oils, etc.

So Joe, if you are such an expert now, do we need to call you a ROK star?   8)

Ok, Ill stop PUNishing you now.

Well from past posts, Joe already has the purty fingernails, so a Boa may not be that far off in the future ...
