I loved the idea of this coffee machine and while it worked it was flat awesome! I like making those froo froo coffee's. It worked out well for that but nothing I can't reproduce manually.
First it wanted to be cleaned. I get it, we don't use softened water in it but then even after cleaning it had the annoying "clean me" light flashing. Then it would brew only what it felt like. It could be a full carafe, half carafe or a cup. After several attempts we had a full pot. Well, we are heavy coffee drinkers. The time it took it was a no brainer to just go back to the old method.
And here she is, in all of her glory. No moving parts, no vinegar rinses, no hard water issues. We've come full circle folks. Now it does take time, about a half hour start to finish but, hey, I'll take it!
This weekend was all about snow. Here's the first round, starting Saturday afternoon and finishing up Sunday late morning.
Got all plowed out Sunday by noon and it was wash, rinse, and repeat Sunday afternoon until this morning. I think we ended up with about 8 inches in the 2 times. And who doesn't love all that snow with wind to make it a complete blizzard?
Gotta love Minnesota, Mother Nature sure has a sense of humor that's for sure.
