My Old Coffee Machine is now at the SFMOMA - Braun and Dieter Rams

Braun Coffee maker - I had this one for about 15 years!!!!
When I moved in to my flat on Telegraph Hill, I was given 'hand-me-downs' by family members to help me out with household items I needed and couldn't really purchase at the time. I received this coffee machine from my cousin in Menlo Park, CA. She didn't want it. I needed it. Now the same model coffee machine is on display at the SFMOMA. Crazy! I ended up putting it curbside in 2007 when I went full on French Press.

Coffee Machine
Here is a little information about the Bruan Coffee Machine I used for years. Thank you designer Hartwig Kahlcke.

This was one of the highlights at the museum - I love design and consumer products. It was fun to look at all the stuff we once used or thought was high-tech, HiFi
