Thanks, I'm glad it's working out! Yes, it has lots of quakers (the lighter colored beans). It's just good stuff, I couldn't pass it up based on that small flaw.

PNG is great. Interesting mix of bean sizes, mix of arabica and robusto?

I'd say Brazil, probably! I have 2 hario mizudashi cold brewers around, as well, if someone wants a custom bundle.

That price is absolute madness. If you need a brewer, you're getting a $350 brewer for under $100.

Yessir. It has mixed reliability reviews, but it's designed by Tim wendelboe, who's a hell of a name in specialty coffee.

Bought one based on your recommendation alone. I hope it doesn’t suck!

Well, the black model gets 4.5 stars on amazon, the silver 3.5. There really isn't another brewer that brews at the right temp for this price.

Let me know how it goes!
