I have a Cuisinart conical CBM-18, and I think it does a fine _enough_ job for french press.   However, I would gladly (and will be at some point) upgrade to an Encore.  That refurbished encore deal seems to be dead because I would have snapped up one myself.  I think it would be more than good enough for the french press job.

Check back on the Baratza site on Wednesday evening/Thursday morning, which is when they post this week's refurbs...

That won't work for him as he's in Canada & Baratza doesn't ship north of the border..

Aha!  A very useful bit of information.

Not necessarily a deal breaker, as I'm ~90km from the border (in Ottawa) and frequently travel down to south ON, so a slight re-direct off to the bridge and back isn't going to kill me.  I don't think I could find it in Canada for anything approaching that price, frankly.  Also would be tempted to pull the trigger on the scale add-on.

The addition of the Esatto scale makes the Preciso, just a joy to use. One of the best (two) purchases I have made in a long time. The Preciso is extremely easy to clean, so easy, that I routinely do a full clean every time I switch coffee, which is usually every 12 oz. bag of beans. By cleaning it that often, nothing ever has a chance to cake on or build up. Soft brush and a vacuum cleaner removes everything. Take care!

The pathologically precise are annoying, but right!

I've just added a refurb Esatto to my Preciso as well, and I concur.

I guess the price of the two is similar to that of a Vario W, but you can purchase them in stages...

I agree!, & I've been using my combo for just shy of 2 years now. {;-)
