As soon as my daughter was tall enough to reach the sink tap I taught her to make coffee so that should I ever break both my arms or become otherwise incapacitated, someone could make the coffee (and serve it to me, doy).
Now I am NOT like my uncle, who is one of those people who, if they don't finish the pot, don't mind REHEATING IT THE NEXT DAY OMG.
But unfortunately I DO let a lot of coffee go to waste, because I'll make a full pot and drink 2 or 3 cups and then get busy and the coffee pot will automatically turn off after 2 hours. Then I'll forget about it for awhile and when I remember, what happens is that I just make a whole other fresh pot.
Then one fine day I was approached by a representative from Tassimo who offered to let me give the BrewBot a try so of course I'm all OH HELL YEAH BABY! Or words to that effect.
UPS, YOU AND I ARE GONNA HAVE WORDS, MISTER. YOU DELIVERED THIS TO MY NEIGHBOR) and when I walked up on the porch I grabbed the box and I... well, I hugged it. And possibly wept a tiny tear of joy. There may have been a booty-shaking little dance as well but I'd never tell you that.
I DID have a small disappointment though - when I opened the box and took out Brewster (that's his name, yo), I kept waiting for him to open up and start busting some moves like he does on the commercial.
FYI: if you wait for yours to start dancing around or pushing buttons for you, you are doomed to heartbreak.
This is the cutest coffeepot ever! It's small and space-saving (which is excellent because my kitchen is about the size of a postage stamp and I have about a square foot of counter space), and SO easy to use!
THE FUNNEST COFFEE POT IN THE WORLD. (yes I said funnest and I meant it even though I know I should say "most fun" but whatever and WHOSE BLOG IS THIS ANYWAY?)
You can make one cup at a time so that it is ALWAYS fresh - and maybe I want a cuppa black coffee right now but want some French vanilla next? Easy peasy lemon squeezy. I can have 5 different flavors one right after another if I want. I AM THE BOSS OF COFFEE.
I made STARBUCKS Primo Latte just now - it was easy and took like one minute and YUM. In the morning I'm going to try the Gevalia. I can't wait to try some Chai tea and I know Becca will want some hot chocolate.
So if you still need an excellent Christmas gift for your favorite coffee drinkers, GO GET THEM A BREWBOT. They will love you for it.
And you will thank me later.
