Something pretty awful happened to me a few days ago. Something so horrible that it is almost too painful to speak of.
Yes, my much-loved and much-used Bodum coffee plunger broke! Oh the horror … With a whole section of glass snapping off, there was nothing to be done to save the poor thing. The worst thing was that I wasn’t able to get to the necessary shops to replace this most essential of kitchen utilities for TWO DAYS!
Somehow I managed to survive the worst, and I am now happy to report that the house is once more filled with the delights of freshly plunged coffee. In the time between the departure of the old and the arrival of the new Bodum, I had to satisfy myself with online ogling of coffee related paraphernalia. Imagine my delight when I found ‘the coffee owl‘ by Christine Clemmensen – it’s literally made for the 8-cup Bodum coffee plunger!!
Once November comes around (and buy nothing new month is behind me), I’ll be purchasing one of these lovelies and spoiling my new plunger rotten. Surely with an adorable coffee owl keeping him warm, my new plunger will stay well for longer (and therefore keep me sane for longer too)?
