… The title for this post should really be GOT instead of Found as it was one of my Christmas presents. And it just keeps on giving – every morning! It’s no secret that I love my coffee and my mornings just wouldn’t be the same without a big mugful of this fine nectar. So outbursts of pure joy were witnessed when I unraveled a shiny Chemex Coffee Maker on Christmas day!
It really is a simple pot where you pour hot water over your coffee, but the secret (if I have my info right) is in the triple filters that give you a smooth scum-free cuppa. It was designed by a scientist on a search for a way to make a good cup of coffee and Chemex is what he came up with.
It’s good design and function all in one! And I’m a big fan of good design.
Ps. Top tip! If you’re thinking of purchasing a Chemex, make sure to shop around the interweb as the prices seem to range from £30 to £100 on different sites.. crazy.

Toast! This found comes with a serious swooning warning. Everything is beautiful and all of a sudden you can visualise your home and wardrobe full of ‘can’t live without’ Toast items (and in the process your home has seamlessly transformed into a mountain hideaway or a beach house to accommodate all these). Just be careful, your bank account might/will not love this new found crush. That’s why these Toast goodies are usually found on my birthday/christmas wish lists.

To make things even more appealing wherever possible they support organic production and discourage throw-away fashion. Love that.
If you’re just up for a good day dream get a catalogue! These are a reason why our house guests often spend a few minutes longer in the bathroom than perhaps necessary (you see, our powder room has been a home for a good collection of toast catalogues for a while now) And in good recycling form use as wrapping paper when the piles are getting too high (pun not intended!:)
