do you mean, uh..........................percolators?

also why not scrounge some Bunn srs bsns coffeemakers like you see in diners
or restaurants?  they generally hook up to the water supply and have their
own burner or their own thermal carafe, so we can avoid the stove entirely.
 They are NOT HARD TO USE, entire offices worth of software engineers manage
to mostly not fuck up using them every day!  And they make significantly
more coffee than a single countertop percolator.

I feel like there may be warehouses in oakland full of used crap that might
have some of these.  I'd be willing to throw a few bucks at it, I would
spend SO much more time at NB if I could MAKE MY OWN COFFEE (in something a
little less sketchy looking).

also bean roasting and proper coffeemaking workshops++
