My small, trusty Bodum French press, after years of service, bit the big one this morning, apparently from complications resulting from a fall.  It had previously taken a tumble out of the dishrack and survived a three foot drop onto tiling, causing me to marvel at its resiliency.  But when I poured the hot water into it this morning and stirred, it popped a perfect triangle of glass out of its side and onto the cutting board (along with a good measure of coffee.)  Bummer.

Also, that was the last of my coffee…

Perhaps someday, or in a different timeline, I will switch over to the macchinetta.
