the saga of the broken coffee maker!!

Saturday, February 08, 2014

I got up Thursday morning, did my morning routine, got dressed, groomed, got the dog fed and walked, and sat down to Facebook, while awaiting my pot of coffee to brew.
Friday, repeat. Only, something was differerent, I kept waiting for the beeeeep beeeep beeeep of the coffee maker.
It never came, So, I went to the kitchen to check and all the water from my coffee maker had leaked out of the bottom and the back and was all over the counter-top.
I unplugged and sat it in the sink and began the task of cleaning up water, which seemed to be EVERYWHERE.
What had befallen my beloved coffee maker???
I have had it, oh, maybe 4 years or so.
It has never failed me.
But alas, coffeemaker, gone astray!!!
Then my plan was to go to the store and purchase a new one. But, I was offered a job recently, part time, trial basis type deal, and the lady just happened to call wanting me to work.
Which by the time I was done working, ON NOOOO COFFEE, I was way too tired to go shopping and too grungy.
So, today I guess I will go to the local dollar store and buy an el cheapie cheapo.
I had a fall back coffee maker, but honey saw fit to give it to his brother.
Why oh why.
So, day two, no coffee.
I am going to go for a cup or two today, maybe three.
I have been having some tasty orange juice.
I tried to make myself a cup using the old timey method of straining, but it didnt work too well, and ended up with grounds in my coffee and that is a pet peeve of mine, that and HAVING NOOO COOFEEEEEFFFEEEE!!!!
Help me!!!

    Oh my! I'm sitting here laughing because I can relate! NEED my a.m. coffee! You can make coffee in a sauce pan, after if boils and brews, turn off the heat, let it sit, the grounds will settle to the bottom, pour CAREFULLY and you'll be ground free. We've even made it in an old metal coffee can when camping, can be done, but a coffee maker is sooooo much easier! Good luck on finding you next cup 'o joe!

    I hate those days of a broken coffee makers. A cat that I had broke one that my brother bought us and now we have one that I can't figure out how much grounds to put in. If I put in too less, too weak. Too much, too strong. It's a 4 cup type coffee maker that my dad's oldest brother gave us and it has to be a cheap on. So we get it when we get breakfast somewhere or at Target getting it.
