I got this handmade pour over for making that single serve cup of coffee that I need to get me through the afternoon. If I make a pot, I'll drink a pot, so this keeps me caffeinated, but not jittery. I love supporting an artist in the process, knowing my cup is one of a kind.
I love my Thermapen! I use it when cooking fish and meat, and when baking bread. It helps me cook things to just the right temp so they come out better. Yes, it's pricey, around $100. But it's worth it if you are a serious cook. Thermoworks has some less pricey options too.
