Rowenta Morrison All in One Coffee Maker
The Morrison all in one coffee maker in a design we really like. It looks like you're putting the coffee into some giant sugar cube and surely good coffee will result. We like the stainless steel with the stark white and charcoal grey elements. We've never seen a Rowenta coffee maker in person, but we're going to see one out this weekend just to see it in person. Amazing.

we've had this for 3 years, loved the design but have had several problems. The first was the stainless carafe, and the top of the carafe broke 3 times, was replaced finally with the glass carafe. The thing keeps the coffee hot, a plus. Finally, it is leaking; filling the reservoir, a whole cup will dribble out on to the counter in the time it takes for the pot to brew. We are so bummed, it is so cool and expensive, and now we're going to have to toss it. Friends with the same coffee maker have had problems with the top warping so that it doesn't sit straight, and on both, the plastic is cracking. We suffer some things for beautiful design, but this is feels excessive.
I've had this coffee maker for over a year now and while the design is innovative, it falls short in a few areas. The carafe (stainless) design is weak in that I've had one replaced for leakage, one for the ceramic feet falling off and am on the third broken lid (there are little tiny buttons of plastic that keep the lid on that break off, and fall into the coffee). Now I pour with one hand and hold the lid on with the other. The machine itself now brews with a noize like a diesel engine and fogs up the kitchen. What looks like a good place for storage under the lid for the spoon and filters really isn't, because everything gets wet.
All in all, a beautiful design that falls short on function.
