European Commission To Make Your Coffee Machine Climate Friendly

And have you drinking cold coffee. I’d say they’ve gone off the rails, but that happened long ago

(No Tricks Zone) The Austrian daily Der Standard here reports that a new European eco-design directive will switch off coffee machines after five minutes. The directive will go into effect on January 1, 2015. Commercial coffee makers will be exempted.

Already harsh criticism is mounting. Some German conservative politicians say that the EU “should focus more on really important issues.” Moreover, the German business association UV Nord criticizes the “regulation madness” of the EU.

But the EU commission defends the move, claiming that it does not regulate the coffee machines in general, but rather only their warming function.

Fortunately, it will be left up to the manufacturer whether they want to include a switch which can reset the 5 minutes for the warmer. How magnanimous! Can you imagine getting up every 4 minutes to hit the button? All Warmists should be required to replace their old coffee machines with the new ones.
