073: 2013 Gift Guide – Pt. 1

Well hello there fine chaps! It seems it is that fine time of year again when we all start gearing up for the holidays. The parties are planned and scheduled, good times are shared, and goodfaith compromises are made on how much weight gain is acceptable between Thanksgiving and Jan 2nd.

Or maybe you have say, 8 other people waking up from a night of drinking and your piddly little press [no offense intended, I love my press] just isn’t going to cut it. Time to call in the BFG of coffee makers, the Technivorm Moccamaster. Capable of making 40 ozs of perfect coffee in mere minutes, it fits the bill for fueling up for a day of cloistered work-from-home or assuaging the hangovers of your closest amicis.
