Where Personal and Professional Life Collide...

My life in 8 words: Organized chaos, by preference. Exhausting, but never boring

I come seeking wisdom, but will settle for caffeination.
Oh Internets, show me your combined wisdom. I need to replace my coffee maker, aka "Old Faithful." I have limited counter space, no need for an espresso machine (I had one and gave it away), and generally drink 2-3 cups of coffee a day (real cups, not what they claim is a cup).

So. Hand over your recs.

Also, I am tempted, based on the love I have for my wee travel-sized French Press, to buy a larger size one for everyday use, but am not sure how well that would work out for a full morning's iv drip....

Americans, at least in the Northeast, tend to use "cup" to refer to any drinking vessel that isn't made of glass (and sometimes even those that *are* made of glass). Even when we're talking about mugs. At the same time, measuring of ingredients is indeed based on the 8-oz "cup."

And believe me, around here you have to make an effort to find drinking vessels smaller than 8 oz. This is, after all, the country that pioneered the cardboard drinking vessel size range that *starts* with "large."

(And what are drinking vessels made of glass called? Glasses, of course. Even when they're imperial pints. Isn't language fun?)
