How to Make a Great Cup of Coffee...

So how many different coffee pots have you had over the years?


I think I always purchased Mr. Coffee brand.


Of course, I've always had the "Go BIG or Go HOME" model

Let's get honest, these don't last.  Luckily the company supported their product and sent free replacements.  However, I think they aren't quite as accommodating as a few years ago.  Get out your paper clips to try to fix it.


At one point, I thought espresso was the way to go.  It is pretty good if you take the time to steam and froth the milk.  I still have it, but only use it once in awhile.  It is good if you are going to travel for the day...more caffeine less liquid intake. :)

I never had one of these, but my father-in-law always gave me coffee out of one.
 I remember it being pretty strong, but it was always hot all day long.
Honestly, the coffee grounds on the loose kind of scare me.

I was looking into these coffee pots, and come to find mom had one from years ago!  I guess I don't need to buy one.  It makes a great cup!  All you need is hot water!

Here is a more expensive, yet very modern and appealing version.  It essentially does the same thing as the black mug my mom gave me - but on a "more caffeine" scale.
