Most mornings, we’re lucky if we make it in to OB HQ with both eyes open and only having hit the snooze button four times (a personal best, mind you!). We cannot function without coffee in the a.m., but we also can’t function enough without coffee to even make the damn stuff. Enter the Hamilton Beach 47686 Brewstation Plus Coffeemaker. ($48) It’s programmable, so before we hit the hay each night we dump in water and beans and set the buttons so that we’ll awake in the morning to the smell of glorious, glorious java. There’s no carafe to mess with, either. Just stick your to-go mug under the spout and the machine will pour forth the espresso-y goodness. Add soy milk, cinnamon, and some Stevia, and presto! We can see straight enough to write these words for you, our faithful readers.
