We picked up a cheap coffee maker in the black Friday sales.

We have wanted one for a while. Our old coffee maker was simply too hard with a little man running around, the time needed for dealing with grinds was simply not available any more.

But the ones we liked were expensive so we couldn’t justify it. That was until a cheap on one special came up which seemed low risk.

No sooner had the box been opened and it was nicknamed “The Coffee Penguin”.

Really, what were the designers thinking? On the plus, CJ thinks it looks fantastic.
