While I can not stand the smell or taste of coffee, the device itself is beautiful in its construction and elegant in its execution. I particularly like the blend of the Steampunk with the microchip tech, even though purists will no doubt not care for it. But the temperature stability is important to the flavor of the results, and I have always been a member of the Whatever Works School Of Technology. I wonder what other interesting hybrids are waiting for one of us to invent? Thanks to Worlds Without End for the heads up on this one.
