Welcome to this week’s Winners & Losers, featuring original art by Ben Blake of Draw Coffee. In the spirit of TV Guide’s long-suffering “Cheers & Jeers” feature, we’re presenting the winners and losers from the last week in coffee.

Winner: Mr. Coffee


Mr. Coffee has effectively upped the game with a $170 luxury-class coffee brewer. The price tag makes it the most expensive Mr. Coffee brewer to date – and the hottest! No, seriously, by hot we mean it can heat water to 205 degrees fahrenheit (other Mr. Coffees heat water to 185.)

Winner: This Shirt
