This is probably more of a British thing, but do you remember waking up to a machine, by your bedside gurgling away making a fresh pot of tea in the morning?
In the 1980’s, we had one, that we bought used. There is nothing better than a nice hot, fresh cup of tea, in bed, when you wake up. Without, of course having to go downstairs, fill the kettle, then wait on that to boil, then make and bring tea back upstairs to bed. Especially on a cold winter morning.
