needless to say, my husband does not and never will drink coffee, so we don't have a coffee maker. what i have been using up to this point is a sad little plastic cone brewer, which was a total bummer when i had my parents + aunt in town over christmas who are big coffee drinkers.
so, since christmas especially, i have been thinking about making an upgrade. while i'm not quite ready (nor will i ever really be) for the likes of a beast like this, i'm thinking that something like the following are right up my alley.
of course while i was looking around i happened to find this amazing tea brewer (honestly, i didn't know that such a thing exists). get this: it lowers the tea leaves into the water once it reaches the optimal temperature, and then lifts them out after the ideal steeping time. hello, love!!!
for now i think that i will stick with one of the simple coffee makers above to get my fix.
