There are a lot of coffee fans here at the office, myself included. I blogged before about my love for Nespresso (Nicole is also a fan), but sometimes all you want is a good ‘ol cup of the regular stuff. One machine that passes the test for both design and functionality is from Krups. If waking up to the smell of coffee is your idea of a good morning, then I highly suggest you register for their Precision Coffee Maker. It heats up faster than any other machine on the market, has a warming function, and has separate programming for weekends and weekdays. Plus it has a sleek stainless steel design, so leaving it out on the counter isn’t an eye sore. The glass carafe version retails for $150, while the stainless steel carafe is $180. Remember guests expect you to register, so if you’re looking for a coffee upgrade to include on the list, this is the model for you.
