coffee makers

So, I really want to invest in a good quality coffee maker. Until now I've used a french press, but my husband does instant coffee because it is the quickest thing to a cup of coffee. All of the coffee makers I've seen at K's denki and such are flimsy plasticy and feel like they will fall apart in 5 mins, but still cost ichi man. I'm afraid to purchase one online and have the same feeling. Anyone have a brand recommendation on amazon? I'm looking for one with a programmable timer for my mendokusagari husband.

    This time of year it's not as fun, but during summer I make 'mizu dashi' coffee using a one liter glass jar fitted with a special filter. I got it at Nitori for around 1000 yen, but it's Iwaki brand, which is sold everywhere. I love it because I just set it up at night and put it in the fridge, then in the morning, cold coffee is ready. I stick with the pour over hot coffee the rest of the year. I think the quality is better with those and French press, but it is tempting to get a coffee maker with a timer sometimes. Sorry I don't have a coffee maker or suggestions for a good one in Japan. Maybe a simple Keurig is a good solution? That's your optimal lazy coffee maker, although it's gotta be more expensive per cup, especially compared with instant.

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!

Trip to Miyazaki this summer. Any recommendations?

Heading to Miyazaki, Kyushu this summer (4 nights, staying in Aoshima). Any recommendations on places to eat would be much appreciated. Also, any sightseeing spots? The priority is surfing but we'll have a car and will still have time to travel around a bit. Cheers!
