Ecuadorian beans are very good. There really is no reason to bring any with. I grind as I make my coffee, that keeps it fresh and improves the quality of the brew.
I have heard an induction plate will allow you to control the temperature but I have not tried a press here. My friend has and said it didn’t make a quality cup for him.
He uses a Chemex, pre heats the water and pours it directly on the ground coffee. I would say this is a pretty good system, but the taste did vary a lot more than what I get with my grinder and Moccamaster.
I also use a gold filter.

No clue why the prices is so high right now. I think I paid $50-80 for mine.
