Stellar Cafetiere

This is how it all got a little bit serious.

Back in the day, Edge Hill University’s IT Services office had a pretty bog standard filter coffee machine. Then one day it broke and we were left contemplating the future.

Some argued for a big commercial filter coffee machine – “one with the two jugs” – while others questioned whether we could survive on instant coffee alone. Eventually we settled on buying a cafetiere and came the Stellar range. It ticked all the right boxes:

  • Insulated dual walled construction
  • Stainless steel
  • 12 cup capacity
  • Looks damn cool

It was pricey, but split between a few people in the office it was affordable and so a week or so later we were back in fresh coffee and I don’t think anyone would regret the purchase.

Over the last four years we’ve probably brewed thousands of pots of coffee and while the filter is a touch discoloured it’s otherwise as good today as it was the day we bought it.

I’ve got one at home too and while it mainly comes out at weekends – 1.5 litres of coffee is a pretty big drinking commitment – it’s still well worth the money.

Stellar cafetieres come in a range of sizes and while none are cheap, they’ll last a lifetime and look great in any office or home. Available in matt and polished stainless steel and in an Art Deco design. There’s a few suppliers who sell them through Amazon Marketplace:
