Death of a Coffee Pot




This may seem silly, but today I am mourning.  I have in fact been mourning for over a week because my Keurig Limited Edition Coffee Brewer, gem that it was, has come to the end of its life.  I loved my brewer.  Those who have one will understand…

I loved it so much that I bought one for my father-in-law for Christmas; one for my son and daughter-in-law for their birthdays (which fall one day apart); one for my husband’s best friend and his wife when they got married; and one for my friend-since-7th-grade, just because I knew she’d love it (and she does).  I also have a friend in another state who owns one (and she loves hers too), and we have had lively discussion about our beloved Keurigs and the delicious K-Cups that go with them.  My favorite K-Cup, though I have many, is Green Mountain Nantucket…hands-down THE best cup of coffee I have ever had the pleasure of tasting.  Gloria Jean’s Butter Toffee K-Cup is a close runner up to my favorite, especially when I’m in the mood for a really good flavored coffee.

I did telephone Keurig, whom I know to have great customer service.  See, my Keurig broke once before, and they walked me through the process of fixing it over the phone, and at the time I was delighted!!  This time, the brewer is out of warranty, and the problem is different…it just won’t power on, so there was nothing to be done.  They did offer me a new one at half price, and a year ago I would have jumped on it, but my student loans are about to come due, so living frugally is going to be a must.  That means no new Keurig in my future.  And I’m okay with that… I realize sacrifices have to be made when there is debt to be paid.  But that doesn’t stop my mourning.  As I sit here with my normal cup of coffee, brewed in the automatic drip pot (*shudders*), I realize I’m grateful to have coffee at all…but I sure do still miss my Nantucket K-Cups throughout the day.  Thank goodness I know that this too, shall pass.

In the meantime, many thanks to Keurig:  I loved our time together…
