I am a coffee addict....well, let's say fanatic since that sounds better...even though, addict is probably more appropriate. After doing some serious blame-storming, I've decided that it is my Grandpa's fault. He was a mailman in rural Iowa. I used to go with him now and then on Saturday mornings to deliver the mail. (Boy, do I have stories about that, but that's for another time) He always kept his glove compartment full of Brach's coffee candy. I loved those candies. I must of gotten hooked on that flavor because to this day I love coffee flavored anything. There is nothing like a good cup of coffee in the morning. Now, I have a very nice $1000 coffee machine. No, I did not buy a $1000 coffee machine.....it was given to me........long story. Even though, I have this incredible machine, there is still plenty of times I use this. This carafe is ingenious. You simply put the coffee in, pour in the boiling water, wait four minutes, and pour. You don't have to remove the grounds or press anything. The filter keeps the grounds in the carafe and the lid is even drip proof. I love when something has a simple classic design, but is so functional.
If you are in need of a thank you gift, you can't go wrong with this coffee carafe. Tell them how glad you are that they are a part of your daily grind. Don't forget about your corporate gifts. This could easily transition over to clients.
