Yuck, I made "cowboy coffee" this morning…
So, we got this new coffee maker because our old one was like 10 years old and it took several hours to brew one freaking pot of coffee. It was evaporating the water before it managed to drip through the system and onto the coffee grounds.
N’s birthday is coming so I thought getting him a coffee maker would be a nice early birthday present for the whole house so I cruised on over to amazon.com and got a programmable coffee maker that arrived in no time.
Since N is away on business I have been the coffee maker and I suck! Well actually the filters suck.. We had all these cone shaped natural filters for our old coffee maker and for this new coffee maker we need the white basket type coffee filters. Being the cheap economical one I insisted we use all the coffee filters we already have before buying new ones..
Well, there is a reason they have special coffee filters specifically for specific coffee makers.. Each makers grounds basket is different and not all filters fit perfectly. Anyway, the coffee filter slumped over allowing the coffee grounds to escape from the coffee filter and they made it right into the coffee pot. My mom calls this “cowboy coffee”… Yuck!
P.S. I found the above image via google images and wanted to share with you that it is not my own, the one I took sucks! It is from: http://snailstales.blogspot.com/. I just put it on my own sever to avoid hot linking the image. Here is my sucky image..
