Keeping track of coffee consumption isn't necessarily at the forefront of the minds of coffee drinkers. After all, anyone who has ever delved into the dark elixir has at one time or another--or every day as the case may be--subjected themselves to drinking an overabundance of coffee. Aside from being easy to do, it's fun; jittering through the day can produce some interesting consequences. However exciting that may be, sometimes we just want to see what we are getting ourselves into before we get into it.

Every coffee drinker knows just how much coffee is in the pot, but sometimes it helps to see the magic in action. The Viante CAF-05T Brew-N-View Coffee Maker harkens back to an earlier time when percolating coffeemakers allowed users to witness the progression from water to coffee. It features an illuminated viewing window, allowing a peek into the inner process of coffee-making and supplying an intriguing perspective for the daily activity.

Coffee drinking has of course become much more sophisticated in modern times, and has been integrated into every aspect of our lives; coffee is always nearby. Along those same lines, the coffeemaker incorporates an uncommon feature designed for quick and easy access to the brew: a dispensing tap. Along with a 24-hour timer and an automatic 2-hour safety shutoff, the up-to-date appliance makes it easy to see--literally--how coffee fits into the daily routine.
