This week I’m traveling, which means I’m ensconced in a cozy rental unit I found using HomeAway. I generally enjoy my experiences with properties on the service, but this one has been exceptional, and one reason is the BonaVita coffee machine that makes some of the best drip coffee I’ve ever experienced.
I had never encountered this brand, which apparently is well reviewed and beloved by coffee folks for being a cheaper way to get that pour-over coffee taste.
Why do I bring this up? Because I’m likely to purchase one of these machines after having the chance to live with it for a few days. Which leads me to think that short-term rental units might be one of the best sales channels that connected device companies have.
