Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

One afternoon last week,  I turned on my coffee pot to warm up the left over coffee, needing that extra boost to last until the reinforcements came home a couple hours later.   Twenty minutes later I poured myself a cup, and took a drink.  I was astounded when I realized the coffee I was drinking was barely warm.  I looked at my coffee pot, yes it was on. I counted it up as a fluke and continued drinking my lukewarm coffee.

The next morning I stumble downstairs and get the coffee started.  A few minutes later, I look over and see that my coffee pot is on but nothing is happening.  Then I recall what happened the previous afternoon.  Aha!  It’s broken.  Oh, no!  It’s broken!  I was unable to do anything about it, having sick little ones and being the only adult at home, so I went without that morning.

So that morning I put out the question out to the masses-french press or electric coffee maker?  I had considered getting a french press before, but wanted some more affirmation for my whim. I mostly received responses about the french press.  Here’s what they said, “It is the best coffee” and “You’ll never go back”. So, of course, I had to get one.  So, I went shopping online, looked at reviews, drove to Target and picked one up.  I also stopped at Starbucks and got some coarse ground coffee. (I know I should have got a bean grinder, but I just didn’t want to shell out that much money at once).  I brought it home, washed it up, read the directions, and made my first batch.  It was good?  It was different.  It… was… okay…

After a week of using it I have come to the conclusion that I really don’t care for it.  My coffee was fine the way it was.  It was …just the way I like it.  It was my coffee maker that was broken, not my coffee.

So, to all those french press lovers out there.  Thank you for your advice, but I am happy with my electric drip coffee maker.  I can’t wait to go home and use my new one.  I am over-excited to set the delay timer, and have HOT coffee ready for me when I wake up in the morning.

Now who’s going to join me?

  1. My favorite line… “It was my coffee maker that was broken, not my coffee.” Plain and simple! I think you have a brilliant sales pitch, if you ever want to sell coffee pots.
