Jaime van Schyndel wrote:Abid is not a brewing system, it is a brewing device. It does not produce the best cup and I am speaking from two more years of experience with the device than you have and several thousand brews of tasting on it. I once used it quite heavily and was fine with it's limitations but now I can't really stand the cup profile in comparison to the layered clarity of a good v60 or Syphon. When I had Abid and my only other real comparisons were Fetco bulk brews and such, yep, seemed like a pretty fine replacement.
My current v60 brews kick the ever living crap out of Abid but then again, I am cheating. Maybe you just got to get all Mr. Miyagi and learn to use the kettle.

"Can't stand"? Really? As in make you want to gag? I find that hard to believe.

Andy Schecter wrote:The bar at the top is a lever than clamps and unclamps the brew chamber and "portafilter" in position. Brett, I'm not sure your comment is accurate, because locking and unlocking on a Trifecta does not involve the twisting motion of an espresso portafilter. I believe it's mostly the twisting that puts an untoward strain on some people's wrists.
Brett Hanson wrote:Which hand position is more comfortable for you to repeat long-term and while applying weight: pointing (like using a portafilter)?, OR
making a fist (like holding a coffee cup)?
I'm no ergo expert, but the latter seems like it makes more sense.

It's a really cool video and the cafe workflow is a great merchandising tool for selling roasted beans, V60's and kettles. But you can't tell from the video if the coffee is consistently good....

I didn't plan on taking my coffee brewer back to my room anyway.
