    Question having + PP?(Usage) + Invest(Meaning)

    I have two question.
    My sentence:

    "W: Do you like coffee?
    M: Sure do! Love my java in the morning.
    W: Well, you might want to invest in a small coffee maker. Its a
    nice luxury having brewed coffee first thing in the morning. So,
    weve covered clothing, bedding, bathroom, and coffee."

    1- Which time we have to use 'having + PP" ?What is the usage of this format?
    2- what does invest mean in the above sentence?

    In your example "brewed" is an adjective.

    Think of it as 'it's a nice luxury to drink freshly-made coffee...'

    '...to invest in' means 'to buy'.
