“… I like waking up to the smell of bacon, sue me. And since I don’t have a butler, I have to do it myself…”
– Michael G. Scott.
Much like Mr. Scott, here in the Page household, we enjoy waking up to the aroma of something we love each morning: a really good, hot pot of coffee. Also similarly, we don’t have a butler to assist with making it. That’s where our Smeg coffee maker comes in. Rather than mirroring the rest of Michael’s morning routine, we simply set a timer and let the machine take care of the rest.
Disclaimer: We don’t claim to be coffee snobs — unless you’re mulling over your coffee bean growers and roasters, you can’t quite qualify for the title of “coffee snob” in my book. Still, we’ve put in our “10,000 hours” of coffee drinking, from the motor oil they brewed at the construction equipment repair shop I used to work in, to the smooth bean water in Haiti and Italy. At home, we’ve dabbled in CHEMEX’s, French Presses, and Keurigs, and while we’re not snobs about our java, we’ve had enough caffeine headaches to at least be annoying about it.
So with that in mind, let’s start with what we love about the Smeg Drip Coffee Maker:
Common Negative Reviews Debunked:
We bought our Smeg Drip Coffee Maker in the “Cream” colorway and have loved it from a design and functionality perspective ever since. While it is a higher price point than some options, we’ve found that we get every bit of the value from it in the quality of the coffee it produces, the durability of the machine itself, and its design aesthetic it provides. We highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a new coffee maker!
