Today I'm in Heaven
About 10 years ago my Dad bought a BUNN coffemaker. He loved the coffee, but hated the idea that the thing was constantly hot, so he gave it to me.
I loved the thing. 5 minutes from hitting the switch to a full pot of darn near boiling tea- yeah, I drink tea, not coffee; because of a caffeine issue.
But about a year ago the damn cat knocked my BUNN off the counter and ever since it has leaked while brewing. I tried getting the parts from BUNN, but their customer service SUCKS. And, because BUNN's Customer Service SUCKS, I wasn't about to cough up a hundred bucks for a new one.
So for about 8 months I just got accustomed to adding an extra 2 cups of water to the tank and wiping up 2 cups of water from the counter. Yeah, it was a bad situation.
So I bought a $10 Rival at Walmart. Took 30 minutes to make a pot of tepid tea, and the pot was so poorly designed that it leaked whenever you poured anything from it. For the last 4 months I have still been wiping up half a cup of water from the counter every morning.
Then yesterday the wife went to a yard sale and found a BUNN for $10. This morning, for the first time in 4 months I had a HOT cup of tea in 5 minutes. I start the tea, prepare my cup with a little sugar and a little milk, pour a little milk in a bowl for Daisy, and Voila! Tea is done, and too hot to drink.
I don't care if it does rain today; Heaven on Earth has returned!
