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.
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

Braun Tape Player and what I think is a radio - I don't have any information on this product. If you do, please comment. Do People have TAPES anymore?
OK I do have information on the above photo: It's a Mobiles HiFi System or a Portable Hi-Fi Audio Unit made between 1976/1977 - Designed by Dieter Rams
What's on your wall? Talk about streamline and so 1970ies!
He seems really cool! Thank You Dieter Rams for all your work, products and passion for Less and More!
