My Parents' Coffee Machine

This is my parents' coffee maker. I have love for this thing. I dream of one day inheriting it, though I'd have no place to put it.

I don't think you have a cabinet in your home that large. I do have a counter-top unit that is about the same thing, and I can't live without it.

WOW, that think looks like it came off the USS Enterprise.

Alton Brown did a coffee/espresso show last night. I had the shakes just watching it.

I'll stick to my crappy $20 Black & Decker. It doesn't have a lot of complicated instructions.

My friend made us lattes on a very similar machine, which ground the beans right in it! I've decided that's my next huge purchase. Well, either that or a large TV. But oh man... I spend enough money on lattes on a regular basis to make it worth it. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

A while ago (when I had a good contract) I got one of those fancy shmancy Starbucks espresso machines. I don't use it often enough now that I have a real job, but on weekends it provides cups of joy.

I use a Chemex (the weird glass carafe with the extra-thick filters) and it makes the best coffee I have ever tasted. It doesn't cost too much for the carafe, and the filters, while more expensive, are so much better than regular filters that it's totally worth it. I love the ritual of making coffee in the morning. Maybe you could splurge on that? Seriously, the job it does is incredible.

Mmmmmm! Coffee Porn.

It looks like you just stick your arm in there and it injects coffee right into your veins.

I have the very same. And after experiencing several of these contraptions, I have to say it's definitely worth paying extra for Miele (but it'll quadruple your caffeine consumption because you just can't help yourself...)

Hey WL. I went to leave this on your FB page but you have several friends from my CITY (scary) and I can't take the chance of revealing my identity. Anywho, I would like you to do your own fluff post. I would like 10 never revealed idiosyncracies or facts about WL.

Also, I really enjoyed the Day without Consequences. Can you make that a yearly event?
