Excerpt: The deliberate ritual of single-serving, hand-poured coffee works great for a lazy Sunday. But come Monday, most of us reach for a machine. The Bodum Bistro offers artisan-quality brew to the convenience-seeking masses with a shower-head top that sprays the water slowly and evenly.
Pros: Minimalist design. Faster than most drip makers. Carafe stays cool to the touch.
Cons: No timer. Nearly 16 inches tall — a tight fit under kitchen cabinets. Better than traditional drip, but not two Benjamins better.
