What’s a coffee maker doing here?

A good cup of coffee is absolutely vital to the productivity of any software developer or writer.
For those looking for a good coffee machine, look no further than TRU’s Single Serve Coffee Brewer. It allows you to brew a single cup of coffee at a time, ensuring that no precious ground coffee is wasted. It’s also quite speedy too. You can find this at Amazon, with free delivery.
