This baby is made from glass, steel, aluminum (in the outer frame only), hardwood, with the tiniest bit of silicon, and one tiny piece of medical-grade food-safe plastic. It uses a Chemex pot, and dispenses water at 202F. The hot plate keeps the coffee warm at 170F.
But... the price is, shall we say, prohibitive. $570 at the current moment. And, due to living with a coffee-hater, (and not enough counter space), it doesn't really have a place in my current home. Someday, I'm going to have my own coffee shack (sorta like the, ahem, person-caves you see around) and then ... maybe.
