       So it's a coffee machine built into a table?
angel, Jul 12 2002
  

       That is correct angel.
For those who need the long form: It is a coffee table in every sense of the word, and then some - height, width and breadth of the table are standard with easily removable parts which are machine washable - though they remain hidden during regular usage, much as a regular coffee maker.
For those who've not a clue as to what bobofthefuture speaketh: I've never been beaten (up) in my life, and never will be - get used to it. The idea's genesis (however momentarily delayed it may have been in posting) came prior to the impotent threats made by the gerbil sodomizers (Note the distinction between being sodomized by a gerbil and sodomizing a gerbil - though I've no reason to doubt the impotent threat posters qualify as experts in either category)

       is it sodomizer and / or sodomizee

       Could you also design me a tea shirt and a chocolate sheik? Since the threat posters were "impotent", it must be the latter, po. I'll have my coffee with a sodom-free, sodium-free, gerbil burger.

       If you can build a coffee table, it's logical to assume that one could also construct a Tea Table along similar lines - a sort of built in kettle/pot system like a Teasmade, with a little refrigerated container for the milk.   

       The big version would be a Dinner Table, and you could I presume design a Breakfast Table as well, with abuilt in croissant-warmer ?   

       Collect the complete set ! No home should be without them !

       Baked! I have one. see link. Vac pots make the best coffee btw.   

       They come up on Ebay from time to time. The heating element is candle or spirit lamp powered but I usually heat the water on the stove and just use the insert as a "stay warmer" the top slides over or even all the way off to reveal the coffee burner.
