    It's not FAIR!! (pour-over kettle)

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I know I sound like a whiny kid, but seriously, why is there no electric gooseneck kettle for the Australian market?

    Has anyone found a solution? Have I missed something?

    Ideally I'd like an electric gooseneck kettle with variable temp like the bonavita ones... I heard they will come to Australia but I don't think any dates were confirmed. Are we destined to use oil decanters or US appliances on step down transformers

    Cheers
    Matt

    Have a look at some of the Asian websites.
    Just about all of Asia use 240v/50Hz, so power will not be a problem.

    The plugs will be different and will need changing.

    Be WARNED however, they will not have Australian SAFETY certification.

    Just a thought, but purchase at your own risk!

    This is the best I could find, do I need to keep looking or this is the best that is out there?

    Can't seem to find anywhere you can order them in lots of less than 1000

    Site sponsor Bombora Coffee & Water Supplies mention on their website that the BonaVita Variable temp electric kettle is due in February of 2013.

    brilliant! I've ordered from them before and they are just great! I think the variable kettle is going to be a big hit. I'm probably going to stick with my hario. I like using it on the gas stove, and it's great if I go camping, but for a really easy elec pour over kettle that is the right temp every time, how can you lose?

    What is important..? electric, goose neck, or variable temp ?
    I have seen a digital variable temp kettle in HN recently.

    I contacted Bombora and they advised me of a place where it can be purchased online in Oz.

    If you can mention non sponsors, then put Easy Coffee in your choice of browser and enjoy. If not, s/he told me to!

    Thanks it's on its way this will be interesting, I had gone back to press after struggling with inconsistency on the V60 for a few months with an ordinary kettle
