This morning, I awoke to the smell of fresh coffee, but my mood turned sour as I saw that only 4 cups had been made. Since we always make 6 cups, that meant 2 cups of it was stuck in the filter bowl still. The reason for this: somehow, the filter’s edge deflates or something underneath where the hot water comes out, thus blocking the coffee flow. Eventually, it all drains out, but I don’t feel like drinking a cup full of coffee grounds (which tag along with the bong water that gets stuck up there). This happens about 3-4 times out of the 6 times a week we make coffee, and I am ready to kill. It is like waking up, walking out in the kitchen and noticing a steaming pile of turd waiting for you in the middle of the floor. The worst part of this is that our coffee-maker is made by Mr. Coffee.
How do you make a shitty coffee-maker when your damn name is Mr. Coffee?
I’ve had better luck with the 10 buck generic coffee-maker that you buy in grocery stores. They just die after a few years, but c’mon! Mr. Goddamn Coffee! Is coffee-making technology that freaking advanced after all these years?! I would have thought that we’ve come about as far as we can go in that realm of human achievement!
I want to blow up my Mr. Coffee crappy coffee-maker. Better yet, go Office Space on it like I did with those pumpkins, if the Chief will let me.
Maybe I just buy cheap coffee-makers? Should I take it to the next level, and I mean really invest some money into one?
What kind of coffee-maker do you have?
