A collection of sorts...


I know, I know, there really is no point in collecting coffee makers. I know that. There might be reasons to have different kinds of brewers, but one of each should do the trick.

Still, as mundane as coffee makers are, many just look absolutely awesome. And every time I come across one, I'm tempted. Very tempted. That's basically the reason my tiny apartment is stuffed full of coffee makers. I call it a collection, because that sounds nicer, but I know it's the result of obsessive-compulsive behaviour...
