"Pumibel, why the hell would you want with this thing when you have all those other really cool coffee things?", you ask. Well, I'll tell you. Do you have only one pair of black shoes? (don't answer that if you are a guy). If that is too glib of an answer, I also have logical reasoning for buying the manual brewer, and here it is:
Most days I make a 10 cup pot of coffee early in the morning, from which I have a mug or two and my mother drinks most of the remaining coffee throughout the day. I am picky and will not drink reheated coffee or coffee that has been on the burner for hours. My mom, on the other hand, will drink it to the last bit of sedimentary sludge without batting an eye. If I want a cup of coffee later in the day, and there is still some of the morning dregs in the pot, I have to transfer the old stuff into a container and brew fresh because we do not waste the coffee. Mom has to heat up her coffee, too. Now I can just fix up my one cup and leave her sludge on the burner until it either solidifies or she slices herself a cup.
