It was called TM Lewis or something.

i am not a fan.

i've wanted to try out tonx too. post reviews if you ever get it started

capnwes just started getting tonx, maybe you should PM him and get his review. (i dont know if he views this section of the forum)

Actually I never even knew this thread existed.


Yes, I recently signed up for Tonx after seeing it on the PTO Christmas gift list. I started with the half order subscription. We received our first shipment last week and are really looking forward to they send in the next one this week. I'm sure you have all visited the site and read the process. The guys at Tonx outsource the beans from various places around the world. They roast them themselves and then ship the very next day. Supplying me with fresh roasted beans right in the mail. The roasting and shipment dates, with tracking are available at all times on their site, so you can plan to receive and enjoy the great coffee. They even have an option to double your order for one shipment in case of company coming or whatever reason.


This is what showed up, the little extras made it even better. I found it very interesting to read about the folks who grew the beans. This one is not overly bold, but rather very smooth with a distinct sweetness about it.






If you want to check it out for a free trial follow this link and I will get a free t-shirt.


Once you join, you will receive a link too. When someone uses your link for a sample, you will get a t-shirt too... and if anyone joins using your link you will receive one free shipment.

I told my girlfriend about it last night. While I have been getting my coffee out lately I am not in the market for beans, but she makes herself French press daily. She's going to sign up.

What grinders do you guys use for your french press?

I use a baratza virtuoso

I have a Baratza Virtuoso as well - great burrs, crappy plastic casing, great customer service. Buy a refurb direct from them and save money.

It leaves my kitchen in a dust cloud when I use it, however.

do they make mini versions? I am tight on space and usually don't make more than 2-3 cups of coffee at a time.

I have a starbucks barista grinder that I got for $8. Apparently it is a rebadged Solis 166.

People say it has trouble going fine enough for espresso (although if you want to disassemble it, you can adjust it to be much finer). I don't have an espresso machine so I don't much care if it can grind that fine.

Seems to work great and doesn't take up much space. I think they now sell a rebranded Baratza instead of the Solis...and the refurbished ones are the best deals out there. Won't be $8 like my unused thrift-store find, but will be a lot cheaper than anything else.

Hmm, ours doesn't, definitely something worth calling service about.

I think he means the static electricity which has always been a problem with the plastic on the baratza. I have the same issue.

Well, I have about 5 different ways to make coffee here, drip and french press for my Peets coffee, a Bialetti 3 cup for the local stuff and a Keurig for company and those days when I just don't have it in me to give a shit.  My everyday drink is a doppio macchiato made on my La Pavoni. 

Here is a picture of on of the fights we've had.  La Pavoni won.
