    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric.

Both are good choices, though I prefer OXO's steel carafe. Even simpler could be a big French press.

Also congratulations on the upcoming baby!

Just because you're having a baby doesn't mean you can slack off on SF.net posting.

This msy push us over the edge for a moccamaster too....

Work has a keurig machine. I am ashamed to say that the Caribou Coffee kcup is not bad all things considered

After reading some reviews like this:https://www.reddit.com/r/Coffee/comments/i5sqoi/the_gang_tries_an_oxo_brew_8_cup/
and

I think I'll go with the OXO 8. Seems like it is a better choice if I might use it to brew small quantities since it has the small filter cone option.

Really impressed with my first beans from Passenger after a month-long rest. The Montecarlos Gesha are an unusual mix of milk chocolate and citrus that work beautifully together. The most outstanding aspect is the velvety texture. Very different from any other coffee I've ever had.

Also, I've got a lot resting at the moment. Here's the lineup:

I'm a sucker for blueberry in Ethiopian beans, and when I saw Perc listed it on their tasting notes I had to try them. The Brandywine is a blueberry co-ferment of a Colombian bean, so it should be an interesting comparison.

Also, I have been doing a lot of back-and-forth comparisons of the same beans between the Kalita and the Aeropress. I feel like the Aeropress has a lower floor for getting a passable, good cup of coffee, while the Kalita has higher ceiling for getting those truly incredible cups.

You should try a Nextlevel Pulsar if you like the good cups from the Kalita: it's the most consistent pourover method out there.
