I met the inventor (Mark) at MICE16.  The story of the Trinity ONE is a great one.  ....from an idea to a company and manufactured product.  It's just amazing what crowd funding can do.
.....and the product is AMAZING.  Very innovative and very high build quality.
Here's a pic:

Is this a cheaper implementation of a Bunn Trifecta?

No, not at all Brett. It's unique. Old school quality and old school simplicity.

I thought that the Bunn was an overrated and overhyped piece of ... Equipment that I could do without - this however is a beautifully crafted piece of equipment that I've followed since inception that I'd be glad to have on my bench !

I'm glad to hear that  because I went out of my way to try coffee from an excellent roast if you and Brisbane out of their Bum Trifecta .   It was poop And yet the same beans from them ( roast batch and all)  were fantastic in my French Press at work.   What does one of these cost out of interest.?

I took a look at the picture of this thing and didn't get any further.  I just looked very unattractive.
I expected poop - thanks for confirming ;)

Well I'm sure somebody somewhere has had some transcendental results from them but it wasn't me on the few times I tried single origins on it.  The variability of steep temperature and agitation looked exciting but never yielded anything for me greater than a half-decent pour over.

I'm being completely ignorant on this one Brett. I have no idea if it's any good but I saw a pic and just didn't like the look of it.  It has an over-complicated appliance look to it.
I like simplicity... :)

Ive made coffee on the Bunn before too many variable that needed adjusting for my liking that could easily be tweaked using a manual pour over method ...

The shop I visited also had reliability issues with theirs also :/
