Instagram Co-Founder Picks Seattle's Bonavita Gooseneck Kettle as One of His Tech Essentials in This Week's Wall Street Journal

Talk about an incredible surprise!  Love it when the Wall Street Journal's photo editor gets in touch seeking a photo of your product because Mike Krieger of Instagram's included it in his must-have list of Tech Essentials. 

This was a case of unsolicited love from a loyal, creative customer who just so happens to have the ear of the editors of the WSJ Off Duty Section.  Check out how he uses the kettle beyond just coffee.  The article read:

"My Tech Essentials.  Instagram's Co-Founder Mike Krieger's Favorite Gadgets.  Mike Krieger, co-founder of Instagram, shares his favorite gadgets and apps for setting goals, brainstorming and keeping his house plants healthy.
"For my morning coffee-making ritual, I used to wait until the temperature of my water was exactly 192 degrees before doing my single-pour—yes, bordering on OCD. But this Bonavita lets you set a precise temperature and then holds the water at that temperature while you go about your morning. Someone told me that the neck is also great for watering plants, so I've tried that, too. Apparently plants like water that's slightly above room temperature. Anything to help keep them alive!""
The entire list of Krieger's essentials may be read here.  Congratulations to Espresso Supply, Bonavita and a big thanks to Mr. Krieger.
