On a visit to see my very good friend in Arizona, I saw she had a "desktop" coffee maker in her kitchen. It was rubbish for when we both wanted a good mug of coffee but perfect for one person. As soon as I got home, I got myself on Amazon and found one.
I use it every day.
(I have a cafetiere in case anyone visits and wants a coffee instead of tea.)
Oh, and my American friend thinks I am "un-British" for drinking coffee instead of tea!
