|Coffee and tea makers to change your office life|
|We review the new Wise Owl bean-to-cup coffee machine, and (at the other end of the scale) a £54,000 samovar for serving tea.|
This is a tale of two types of drink!
Firstly, we thought we'd share our appreciation for our new bean-to-cup De'Longhi Magnifica Evo coffee maker:
|The De'Longhi website version ...||... and the Wise Owl kitchen.|
We're not in any way affiliated with De'Longhi; we just thought we'd share our excitement about our new purchase!
The idea is that you pour coffee beans in the top and barista coffee comes out the bottom. You can get a good idea of what's going on inside the machine from the dregs tray:
You get neat, dry circles of coffee grounds coming out!
The only maintenance the machine needs (at least so far) is filling the water receptacle, filling the coffee bean hopper and emptying the dregs tray.
One other nice feature: there's a separate inlet for ground coffee (so most people in the office can drink normal beans, but Jane in Sales can drink her favourite Decaffeinated Amaretto as normal).
So now we have a new coffee machine, should we get this Russian samovar for dispensing tea?
This is called the "Brandimarte Firenze" (with a price tag of £54,000 you need a pretentious name like this). You can see more details here.
The samovar is made out of silver and hand-crafted in Italy. Things you can buy instead of this samovar (all of these are on my mind at the moment):
The same website sells wineglasses at £1,000 a pop (at this point I must admit I started losing interest).
