Nothing against bodum, but I'm looking for some products to sell at our shop-grinders, brewers, storage etc.- for home use. I like bodum but there's a coffee shop two blocks away that stocks loads of bodum products. I would like to offer something different at the same (or better) quality and price. any ideas?
there's Freiling german brand for a fancy expensive step up from Bodum press pots aka french presses. You can check em out on amazon, and the first thing i figured out in the learning curve of being a Freiling consumer was that they are a lot smaller than they might look on Amazon, so better to err on the side of getting one thats too big.
If you would really like to offer something different than that other shop, I would look into Chemex brewers, Hario pour over equipment and hand grinders, and perhaps Eva Solos (similar in theory to a french press). This would be a nice alternative and would peak interest with your customers with brewing equipment they may have not seen before. You can do a google search for any of these. Prima Coffee (www.prima-coffee.com) also sells them.
