My niece is a Barrister in Oz, and it appears they are coffee snobs and she swears by them, hence why I got one. Its is really easy to clean as you say, and I think tastes better than the cafetiere. Just need to work out if I can get two cups out of it somehow, but its great just for me ( after all it's all about me me me )
I have a stove top perculator but its so much faff I might just bin it
Ground coffee is one of life's little luxuries.
I wouldn't use it backpacking coffee bags do the job for that. It's for home when it's just me having one or maybe car camping..I like the look of the one you posted Ed.
