Michael Graves coffee maker

You may have noticed that Michael Graves has some designer goods at Target. I stopped in for only the second time to look for and pickup a new coffee maker as ours decided to quit.

His coffee maker was in the mid-price range and seemed to have some good features to make it worthwhile. It is manufactured by Hamilton Beach.

The water container comes out and makes it easy to load.
He still uses paper coffee filters so it is not very green on that front. And speaking of green, did you notice the blue oval! It is bright enough to light up the entire kitchen in the dark. You could use the coffee maker for the dual purpose of coffee and night light, that might qualify for a little green savings.

  1. nice, my coffee maker could totally use a light!

  2. If you want to take the initiative and "go green" and purchase a gold filter. They fit most commercial coffee makers. Say goodbye to paper filters. Only have to buy one and also makes the coffee taste better....not bitter.

  3. @Claire going from no light to this might require the occasional use of sunglasses. This light is bright.

    @Going Coastal - yes, and why didn't it get designed with that already? Mr Graves, when you update the next version, can you include a gold filter?
