MY MR COFFEE QUIT!! What is this world coming to when a coffee maker only lasts 20-25 years!
Guess I'll hit the Mountain Dew alittle early this morning.

I'm sorry to hear of your coffee maker's passing. I have a french
press - no electronic (breakable parts).

Why don't you make your drip coffee manualy until you can get to the store? I've had coffee makers bite the dust on me before and I just boiled some water and got the drip basket off the coffee maker and put it over the coffee carafe and poured the water slowly into it. All your coffee maker really does is heat the water and release it in a slow stream into the basket anyway. I get pretty desperate without my morning coffee! :)

I could. The thing shot pretty blue sparks at me the last time I touched it. Sounded like it was perkin' away but when I went to get a cup the pot was dry. Water was at the level that I poured in it. I'm gonna miss that machine, I could make coffee with my eyes closed with it (can you tell I HATE change?)8^)

There's always "cowboy coffee" our's broke down this summer, and just got a flour sack and filled it and tied it and placed into boiling water, strong, but good. I don't used a drip maker, Perculator all the way.

kinda like sdg just said except take a filter and a bread sack tie, take your coffee and put in the filter and wrap it up and tie it off with bread tie and trim off excess filter and drop into boiling water. i do this on camping trips. egh

TimV--no, no!    Posted 09-15-2004 at 06:25:33       [Reply]  [No Email]
If you're going to make cowboy coffee, you've gotta use the right recipe! Take a big iron pot, fill it with water, bring to a boil, and throw in a horseshoe. Add coffee until the horseshoe floats, then drink. You can tell if it's right if your legs bow after one sip.

Thanks for the suggestions and *prayers*(:^)).I'm just going with Mountain Dew this morning...wonder how cream and sugar would taste in MD?!?

That is, indeed, a heart rending tragedy, Mojo. my sincerest, and most heartfelt condolences on the passing of such a "soul mate"..I find, "to brew, or not to brew, such a burning question, at this time of the day when one needs the glorifying, uplifting, and sensuouse whafting of arouma that can only be acheived from the beloved coffee maker....true....there are those amoung us that have never achieved this level of uninhibited uforia...poor souls are at a loss for the finner things in life as they blunder along the way....must go and rejoice, and give praise to the the pot......have a gooder, R.E.L
