Now, each of these appear to mark the water line for many an accomplished toast lover.
Indeed, it's commonplace to see either sitting comfortably at the top of veterans 'top 5's'', and they're almost always in someone's nose or mailbox.
I've noticed, however, that it's rare to see both rated equally highly by individual snuffers, who appear to stick with either one, or the other. Very rarely are both ranked equally, along side one another.
So, my question is... why? What qualities contribute to your preference for one over the other? I imagine it to be a mix of basic things, such as availability, grind, and aromoas... but am wondering what other subtle nuances, contribute to such differences of opinion?
I myself use both, but gravitate towards IHT No 22, if only due to it's slightly coarser grind, which makes for a more rookie-friendy toast. But what are your opinions / views?
