The Barista & Co One Brew Coffee Maker is a cafetiere coffee without the press and the hassle, in a perfect single cup serving.
It’s been just over a year now since I made the leap into the unknown as a single Mum, and what a year it has been! I’ve found myself, had breakfast with President Jimmy Carter, rediscovered my love of kayaking and been introduced to the wonderful world of mountain biking. I’ve learned how to cope with singledom during a global pandemic and I’ve learned what to do when the boiler breaks.
I totally feel like I’m winning at life at the moment, and that’s not just because of the energy provided through my coffee addiction.
And an addiction it is, I confess. Kids are hard work. Being self-employed is hard work. Homeschooling (what was that all about!) was hard work. The energy to deal with all. of. the. thinking. does not willingly come from within. I need an outside boost.
I rather do like my morning coffee sitting in my rocking chair with my feet up in the windowsill looking over the voe. My little piece of paradise, early in the morning before the kids awaken; that quiet bliss where I reflect on how utterly awesome life is and fill out my daily goal setter. (Because also, I have the attention span of a gnat, and when you’re the only one doing all of the things and there’s a lot of things to remember planners are essential!).
I confess I do also love a decent coffee. The thing is, most cafetieres serve at least two, or four. That’s a whole lot of caffeine for one small person, and if I manage to drink it all (before it goes cold) it gives me rather unpleasant palpitations. Too much of a good thing, y’know?
Which is where the Barista & Co. One Brew Coffee & Tea Maker comes in handy – perfect coffee for one. It’s completely fuss-free, super easy to clean and uses gravity to brew your cuppa.
It’s got a sturdy heat shock proof borosilicate glass beaker with a removable silicone base to protect it. It also has a BPA free plastic filter lid with a stainless steel fine mesh filter, perfect for brewing your favourite ground coffee, loose leaf tea, herbal infusions or even iced teas for one.
This coffee maker retails for £21.99 and you’ll get a 1+ year extended warranty if you buy straight from Barista & Co. directly.
With huge thanks to Barista & Co for sending me this review sample.
