This Bodum Bistro brewer came in the mail today - since I am off from work and it's rainy here in my part of North Carolina the timing couldn't be better. Also, my wife just received a visitor so I have been dismissed to the coffee den while she catches up with her friend Christine - it's good time for me to play with this new toy!

The last sip from a 0.6 liter (20 fl oz) pot - some sediment but the filter works well:
The 20 fl oz pot brews in a little over 3 minutes - the temp in the unheated glass poured from the unheated carafe measures 160 degrees F - brew temps are up to spec's and the taste is pleasant - for $250 retail it should be, right?
