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.
