I have no idea about this company. Never heard of them till now.

But, they are located in Metamora and I get there at least once a year. It is a nice motorcycle day ride destination for me. I'll be sure to look them up this summer sometime.

I thought brass was a no no unless pickled first. I would want to know before purchase.

Braz- I ride bikes as well. If you do take a ride over to that neck of the woods I would definitely be interested in hearing your findings.
Stilly- I didn't notice the brass fittings, I'm glad you did. I will do a search on whether its ok or not. However if someone knows off the top of their head I would be interested in knowing. Thanks guys for your replies, this is a real nice forum.

Unless you are really wanting a copper boiler. You could make a nice pot still yourself. Have enough left over to get just about everything you need to go with it. For the same price as one of those stills. Don't get me wrong. Those are some nice looking stills. But man I could build one hell of a still with a keg for a boiler for a lot less.

PP- Its my plan to build a stainless steel pot for a starting point. But, If the hobby o mine keeps I would like a copper one. I have limited copper experience, but would prefer to make my own for privacy sakes. All that stated, I really liked the looks of the guys copper work and wanted to find out more about them.
Good luck with your next coffee batch ;)
