That's pretty cool, the light looks great with clear water, what does coffee do to how the light looks?

Posted September 12, 2012 link

If I remember, I'll take a pic next time it gets used.  The illumination is only a gimmick of course  (what else !) and they made similar models without, but it all adds a bit of theatre and fun to life.  Very bright to start.  Lights up all the water content and gradually deepens in colour  as the coffee brews.

As a friend of mine said when first seeing it working...."only in America...."  ;o))) **

** but also said the same thing when watching the fountains at the Bellagio
