Fans of colorful kitchen appliances, fear not: the Delonghi kMix Collection ($100-$300) has you covered. Available in a variety of colors — including black, white, blue, red, green, yellow, orange, magenta, and the ever-popular un-color stainless steel — the collection includes a toaster, tea kettle, 5- or 10-cup coffee maker, and an espresso maker, each of which features a durable die-cast aluminum exterior, high-quality components, and a simple, elegant, and perfectly-matching design.
Unsatisfied with the quality of coffee created by your average drip machine, Bodum went about re-inventing it as only they can. The result is the Bodum Bistro Pour Over Coffee Machine ($250), which aims to replicate the tedious yet tasty pour over process. It uses a spiral heating element to get the water as close to boiling as possible before transporting it over to the fine-mesh, titanium-plated coffee filter. It then passes though a shower head to ensure even distribution, while the filter lets through all the flavor and none of the grit. Finally, the double-walled thermos ensures the stuff stays warm, yet still opens with a simple press of a button. [via]
