Meta_Kate wants to marry my coffee maker. You see, the übercoffeemaker does not merely make coffee. You put the whole beans in one side, the water in the other, a filter in the middle, then give it a time. You then have freshly ground and brewed coffee in the morning without even getting out of bed. That, plus the sound of the grinder makes a pretty good alarm clock (at least, until I get used to the crackling whine of the airplane-engine-sounding grind motor). Unfortunately, it takes a lot more cleaning than the old coffee maker and old-fashioned hand-crank grinder, but, you know, I could get used to the tradeoff between choice (a) manually making coffee before having consumed said coffee and choice (b) having to clean up after having the chance to consume coffee.
That, plus it makes a damn fine cup of coffee.
