Yes, I know that everyone doesn’t drink coffee and that is perfectly fine with me. I am also aware that others are capable of only fine, high end preparations that include on the spot grinding, tamping, foaming and flavors. Also fine with me.

We are a bit simpler here up on the Berkeley Hill – dump in water, grounds and press the button.



which is why this lovely item came home with us.

It has a removable container for the water so that I can fill it at the sink and not have to pour all over the counter. The basket which holds the grounds is a fine mess and washes easily; eliminating the entire issue of filters, papers and replacements. It has one button. Just one. You turn it on when ready. It doesn’t take all that long, I don’t need a timer…

It is not that I don’t like my little French press, but it is slower and messier.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
