If you are in a bigger company, there are better coffee machines, or so the logic goes. We have a cool coffee machine – but apparently it is too hard for people to figure out because every time I walk over to get coffee, something is wrong. There is either overflowing coffee (typically because people think a carafe is empty and it isn’t, so the new coffee comes spewing out the top), or people standing around dumbfounded, asking the custodian to make the coffee (like she has nothing better to do) because they don’t know how to do it themselves.
This is how easy it is to make coffee with this machine:
That’s it. It is even more simple than most home coffee machines because you don’t even have to add water.
These are mostly people that have advanced degrees!
I can understand the trepidation of something like this, but this is ridiculous. It takes less than a minute to learn, and less than a minute to make.
