bodum columbia ///

I want to assure you that I’m not a complete January 1st masochist — after the 10k run, things took a much more civilized turn with homemade waffles and coffee. The latter didn’t come out of a machine, though, and I didn’t run out to a coffee shop (there’s only so much running a man can do in a new year). After accidentally breaking a few glass coffee presses over the years, I found the  Bodum Columbia and I absolutely love it. You just grind up some beans, drown them in boiling water, and let them sit for a few minutes — a low-tech way to near-perfect coffee at home. And, not only is this press beautifully-designed and durable, it’s also double-walled to keep your second cup warm until you’re nice and ready for it.
