I used this stainless-steel Wave (ideal for one mug) briefly this summer. It's in great condition (it's stainless steel after all) and includes nearly 100 Kalita white filters. Kalita makes top-notch filters--when brewing, I smell the coffee bloom and nothing else, and I get no paper taste in the cup.

The steel Wave retails for $35 at both Prima and Wrecking Ball and the filters are $11. Shipping runs around $11, so I'm offering the combination at around a 26% discount.

I think this Wave is the best coffee-maker out there--the 155 Wave in particular--but I've decided to (try to!) quit coffee, hence the sale. Happy to help buyer with my brewing recommendations.

No to be negative but I was curious as to which dripper this was.  First search on google found a new one for sale for only 34.95...

Might want to adjust pricing.

Oh I don't mind the negative comment.
For the record, Wrecking Ball sells this combination, new, for $57 shipped.
I'm offering a like-new combination for $45 shipped, about a 26% discount.

William, FWIW, on the Prima website, where I purchased my 185 Kalita, the 155 stainless is priced at $29.95, filters (100) at $10.95.
Rounding things off, that's $40, not $58. That price is for a set, including a carafe.

First, I sold my exact same dripper with filters for this price here in about 3 hours when placed on here.

Second, you guys need to get your facts straight and keep your noses to yourself before pushing off any potential buyers.

The 30 dollars you site is for the glass dripper at Prima not the stainless, the stainless is 35 when in stock. It's out of stock there. More importantly Prima doesn't have free shipping so you are going to be paying 10ish dollars to have it shipped. The poster is including shipping in his cost. He is actually selling it to him for a net benefit of around $35.00. So when buying this you are really getting the filters for free. A savings of around 12 dollars when buying it used.

Look I know you guys mean well, but perhaps you should just let the market dictate the price and not just what you THINK it should be. If you want to buy the stuff shoot him email and see if he will go down not torpedo his posting. :@

Thanks Intrepid :-)

Rob, with respect, you're incorrect - you're referring to the more fragile glass dripper, and you're neglecting Prima's shipping costs. I appreciate the effort to safe-guard buyers, but you guys are barking up the wrong tree.

To be honest, then you should have made that clear in your original ad. If you included a picture, the discussion would have been moot. Pretty silly to call others out (even respectfully) when you didn't put enough effort to explain your what seemed like premium prices. In any case, GLWS

It is (and has been) the first word of the title! :-)

I purchased a Ceramic Tiamo from this seller a while back - the price was fair, the packaging excellent, as was the communication. He threw in a stack of filters to get me started as well.

Good luck with the sale!

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Perhaps you should take a look at this:
The SMALLER stainless filter holder IS $29.95. It's $10 more for the Larger 185.
Do your home work before you accuse so cavalierly.
