Just a few days ago I ordered a new Bodum Santos coffee maker from Amazon.co.uk. I love being able to buy things online that aren’t available here, or are just cheaper. Contact lenses for example. With the shipping included, the price is still less than in a shop here. Especially if you buy bulk.
I’ve been wanting a siphon coffee maker for some time now, but the price has always prohibited me from getting one. When I found the “Pebo”, (formerly called the “Santos”) in a shop in Amsterdam I was shocked to find it selling for 99 Euros! I like coffee, but that’s waaayy too much for a piece of glass and some plastic. I love my coffee and Bodum does make GREAT products, but I’m not crazy.
When I saw the same unit for only 50 Euro (plus 5 for shipping) I jumped at the chance. And calling it a birthday present for myself also helped to reduce the guilt.
Just two days after I ordered it from the UK, it arrived by UPS! WHAT?? Not bad! Sending it by courier was surely a mistake, but I’m not gonna say anything. I signed for the unit and hurriedly opened the package.
Later I’ll be posting more about how to use a siphon, but be assured the coffee tastes great and it’s not as much work as you might think!
