I was right . . . you're in a much better pay-grade than I.

My last two coffee-makers (admittedly I put the scoop in the coffee and add the water myself) were (1) free after rebates, and (2) ca. $25, refurbished.

Both featured reusable filters and you poured the water in from the copy you wished to brew into, thus assuring a precise measurement (sans that absorbed by the coffee). The former, which also included a ceramic mug, only lasted about ten years.

The later has helped bring me to a better place this very day and will likely continue to do so. ☕

So - will what you got really make coffee over 40x better? What am I missing?

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
