Morphy Richards Cafe Mattino Filter Coffee Maker £19.59 @ Argos
Ok, parents, here you go! The perfect cure for the 5am wake-up as you stagger, bleary eyed into the kitchen wondering why on earth the sun isn’t out yet. Yes, your kids wake you at hideous hours but perhaps a caffeine injection from the Morphy Richards coffee maker, marked down from £48.99 to a puny £19.59 will help you out.
For less than 20 quid you can own a coffee maker that will deliver twelve cupfuls of aromatic heaven into your shaking hands. Although if you drink all twelve I reckon your hands will be shaking for entirely different reasons...
The Morphy Richards has a flip top lid, water level window, keep warm function and a drip stop mechanism. Look, you can’t underestimate the wonder of a drip stop mechanism. I hate sitting and waiting for the coffee to finish going through before being able to drink my first (desperate) cup but without this gadget the coffee spills everywhere and is a nightmare to clean up.
The carafe is dishwasher safe (yay!) and it has a built-in clock, a timer function and a thermostatic hotplate. Actually, I’m going to buy one right now. Mine is awful in comparison and this one can have my coffee ready before I’m even downstairs. Yes!
