One might think, using an electric water kettle when being "unplugged" is all the rage, is sort of counter-intuitive. Well, not really. Even the French press - one of the greenest ways to brew quality coffee - needs boiling water. The BISTRO electric water kettles are as small as possible, and they deliver that boiling water with the lowest energy consumption possible. The most environmentally friendly thing you can do boiling water is to never boil more than you actually need. They're made from plastic, silicone and stainless steel and come in a variety of colors that make a statement on any kitchen counter. Simple to use, an on/off button is built into the hand for a perfect grip.
