I snagged one of these last year and I love it. The only downside is making sure you clean the hell out of the filter every time its used. Mine sat on a counter over a weekend while we were on a trip. Some mold grew in the grounds and it was near impossible to clean the filter with those little tiny holes.
Sounds like if you are coffee person and you were to receive this as a gift for Christmas from your sister and brother-in-law you would thank them graciously for it and forever think more highly of them?
