Coffee Pot Obsession

Okay I'll admit it I have a coffee pot habit. That's the first step to over-coming it right? I have many different coffee pots. I have a french press, old fashioned percolator, assorted drip pots, a low end cappuccino maker, a Senseo pod pot, and my latest, Keruig one cup pot. Is this the end -- Nope!

I'm not too happy with the Keruig. I got it at Christmas and it's already not working properly. I did some research before I bought it and didn't find the information that I needed--they stop working after a while!

When I wake up in the morning I expect my pot to brew me a steamy, hot, delicious smelling cup of coffee. I look forward to that first sip of coffee. I sometimes climb into bed looking forward to the morning anticipating that sip.

Now I want a Tassimo. Most people would just activate their warranty (which I will try to do) and keep the most recent pot. Not me I'm ready to move on. My love affair with Keruig is over. Keruig disappointed me and it will end up relegated to the old coffee pot shelf in the garage.

The only pot that has escaped the garage is the Faberware Percolator. This in my opinion is the BEST coffee maker ever made. I've had it close to 20 years and it never disappoints. Being the lazy soul I am however, prevents me from using it daily. I save it for company. So if when you are here I pull out the percolator know that I like you and I am trying my best to impress!

I can't justify the Tassimo yet, but I'll keep you posted.

So I call Keruig poised to give them a piece of my mind. To share with the poor customer service worker just how disappointed I am in their product and what happens...they are NICE and they not only replace my machine but upgrade me and send me free coffee. Are you kidding? I am speechless. So for the time being I am enjoying (really) my Keriug Coffe Pot. I'm still thinking about that Tassimo though sigh.


  1. I have the Tassimo and I love it! The Chai Tea Latte is the best...get one.

  2. Love my Farberware. Use it on the boat. We have and love the Saeco Vspresso machine. Makes individual cups with whole beans. Got it with christina actually while visiting her in Venice. Worth every sent. Enjoy your coffe ;)
