14. That looks nice, does it work well?
I have one like this, but with a thermal carafe instead of the glass one. http://www.foodnetworkstore.com/ProductDetail.aspx?R=53... It matches the rest of my kitchen gear.

that's one of MY cups.

And it doesn't seem to be available in the US anyway.

33. Well, there are a few OTHER considerations...
1) Does it do windows?

2) Does it work as a bong?

3) Is it self cleaning, including the filter?

4) How many WATTS of pure thundering bass can it produce?

5) Will having one in your kitchen get you laid?

6) Does it talk? If so, forget it - that's the LAST thing you want.

7) How much wood would it chuck if it could chuck wood?

You have to ask a LOT of questions before purchasing something that looks that expensive!

I'll stick with my Technivorm Moccamaster CDK10. Sexy professional equipment.



edit: I had to smuggle it in from the Netherlands and it cost me $300. It's the best coffeemaker in the world.

37. What makes it good? / What do you like about it? / What makes it worth $300.?

I am thinking of buying a new coffeemaker. Are there any in, say, all stainless steel? (I ask since you seem to be the coffee and tea-making guru in there parts.) This may sound dumb but I always wonder about the piping hot water repeatedly in contact with god-knows-what kind of plastic in those things, and then into my cup; Call me paranoid but I worry about scary chemicals leaching into my joe.

Thanks!

:hi:

38. Well...
It's the best because it works based on pressure (driven by a vacuum pump) combined with a higher quality temperature control than in most brewers. These two factors combine to produce a consistent brewing environment that more completely brews the grounds in less time. Not only is the coffee better, it's more consistent. It features a 9-hole spray-head insuring that the grounds are soaked evenly. These machines are made only from the best available fully-biodegradable and recyclable non-leeching plastics. Some older models are made of glass. There are also stainless steel models, although for weight and environmental reasons the metal of choice on non-food surfaces is brushed aluminum made from recycled cans in a variety of colors. All technivorm machines are hand-made and infinitely customizable.

Admittedly, it's not the machine for everybody. I probably brew 2 gallons of coffee a day. If you're looking for reviews of brewers by people who know a lot more than I and have no agenda, check out coffeegeek.com. It's a messageboard for coffee professionals.
