My coffeemaker died about a month ago, and I needed to get a new one.
But first, let me tell you about my relationship with coffee that I make at home.
I’ll brew it – even set the timer to have it automatically brew in the morning. While it’s brewing, I’ll do something else. And then I might remember to actually make the first cup. And I’ll totally forget about my second cup until after an hour later.
Enter this beauty from Black & Decker.
There are two big things that I love about this coffeemaker.
First, it does not have a heating element in the base. I’ve always been slightly paranoid about heating elements in the chance the water boils off.
So how does that jive with my problem of remembering my coffee before it gets cold?
That carafe there not only is the first carafe I’ve ever owned that doesn’t drip all over the place when I pour, but the insulated material literally keeps the coffee hot for four or five hours. At least. For someone like me, it’s great to be able to make coffee for breakfast and still have hot coffee ready to go at lunchtime.
You can find this coffeemaker for about $50 on Amazon.
