What are you doing in the middle picture? Looks like science class! Also, your fridge is very clean!!
Hey, Ali - The middle picture is a Chemex coffee maker (http://www.amazon.com/CHEMEX-Cup-Classic-Coffee-Maker/dp/B000NTMHRW/ref=sr_1_4?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1297462309&sr=1-4) I got from Amazon for under $30. I just am trying my best to get away from BPA if possible. We had a Mr. Coffee reg coffee maker that heats the water INSIDE the plastic then drips down to the glass carafe....also, it makes the best cup of coffee EVER. The flavor is so different. You basically just put a filter in the glass coffee maker (it takes special filters that you can get from amazon as well), then your beans, then boil some water on the stove in a pot or pan and then pour the water into the top and it drips like a normal coffee maker. It sounds complicated but its not really. And then to keep it warm, you can put it directly on a gas or glasstop stove. If you have electric stove, they sell a grid you can use to warm it. I will bring it to the canning class that we can hopefully talk Jason's mom into teaching. And my fridge is just in dire need of me going to the store....something I try yo put off as long as possible..ha!
and actually they are on ebay for a good deal if you are interested in trying one out!http://cgi.ebay.com/Chemex-CM-10A-10-Cups-Coffee-Maker-Filters-/130483633311?pt=Small_Kitchen_Appliances_US&hash=item1e616e3c9f
