Made of convenient coffee WIN!

May I suggest, for your coffee-drinking convenience, the Hamilton Beach BrewStation with timer?

In the kitchen of Casa G, we've got the large one, the model 47665, which not only will brew you 12 cups of drip, but it will dispense it without pouring from a carafe, it will keep it hot for hours without burning the coffee down, and it will make it in the morning for you after you set its simple timer.

No more broken glass carafes. No more spilling. A small footprint on the counter. At $55, we were pleased.

Look, it's not French press, but you're not going to do that every day. You can cover a lot of sins by using good fresh ground (even better: fresh roasted) high quality beans. And, seriously-- this thing is really, REALLY convenient.

Better & Better gives it Two Thumbs Up.

I DO french press and fresh ground every day. When I am not at Lucky's house. Do too.

Your local accountant firmly endorses the sentiment that Freshly Roasted Beans that are freshly ground are vital to good coffee. Leave it to Matt to point the way to caffinated bliss.

If this is the same accountant that I'm thinking of, then he's found me in a very private, very loving moment alone with my coffee, on a very cold wretched morning in the kitchen of a tired old house. ;)

Thanks Matt, my Krups blew up the morning I left on this road trip, so now I know what to try to find when I get back home. Since I drink coffee morning and evening, this will work nicely!

I have that same coffeemaker, and I love it. Cleaning is a breeze, too. (The metal plate at the bottom of the reservoir will develop a bit of build up, even with rinsing after every brew... which means it's developing elsewhere, as well...) just a little hot water and bleach, and let it run through the flow valve, and rinse.

One-handed coffee dispensing is a lovely thing, especially since my other hand is reaching for the sugar and a spoon...

I carry a stainless steel brick so that I don't have to drink cowboy coffee :P

Is this going to be like when you started going on about your Fresh Roast, and the next thing I know, I'm in my kitchen, surrounded by 25 pounds of green coffee and a $300 Behmor roaster?
Curse you, Matt!

I loves me my coffee, too...I'm thinking of going with an Aeropress. It seems like a pretty cool idea, and it'll keep the coworkers from bitching about how I make coffee.

I'll have to see how well it works with the brick coffee they have over here at the PX.

Coffee is the white man's crack. Fo shizzle.

Come back to us, Matt! I miss your snark!

The wife and I have had one of these ofr several years now.

Beware the little grounds-screen that sits over the dispensing valve in the coffee reservoir.

If it comes loose, it can jam the valve open, and coffee will continue to flow out until you either reach in there to grab the screen (OW, Hot!), or the reservoir runs empty.

This has happened to the both of us!

I just got a smaller one (I think) for Christmas. I've been enjoying it since we got home, but we made tea with it last night. I'm sitting at the computer waitin for my first two cups of coffee from it now (I figure after we make coffee with it, there'll be no more tea.)

I wonder if the "tanks" are cheap to replace. Maybe we could keep a Tea Tank handy.
