Coffee grounds, that is. More specifically, I am speaking about coffee makers. I recently was given a new coffee maker. Most of the time, I have to buy a new one about every year. That goes for the dreaded vacuum cleaner too. What is it with me and house hold appliances? Is a vacuum considered an appliance? Who knows, but in this post, it is! Maybe I have too much energy in my body, I kill whatever I touch! Thankfully, because I have a MIL that has equally bad luck with this kind of stuff, I don’t feel so bad. But it makes me wonder, why? Do companies just not make their products to last? I guess it is smart thinking on their part, it breaks and you have to buy a new one. But if a brand continually breaks, chances are I’ll find a new brand. Catch 22? Or maybe, I just have the death touch.
Coffee makers have all the bells and whistles now days. I was given a Gevalia coffee maker and I love it. It’s the fastest one I have ever had. I like the program options, it’s very simple. I set it for 5am and all Jason has to do in the morning, is pour. I couldn’t figure out my last one for the life of me! (Yes, I read the directions. It just never worked.) Plus, this new one was given to me and that makes it that much better for me. It’s also sleek and good-looking! The only thing I don’t like is I now have to start buying filters again. My last one, I used the permanent basket. I have a thing about buying paper goods. I don’t like to. This coffee maker calls for the cone type filters.
So, if you drink coffee, what do like in the options your coffee maker provides? Do you like a particular brand? How long do they last for you? Do you have the death touch, like me?
