It's Complicated

I have a love/hate relationship with the coffee machine in my office. I love the fact that the firm thinks enough of us to offer freshly brewed Starbucks coffee at several stations throughout the office.

When I first arrived and saw these beautiful babies, I was impressed, to say the least. My first thought, "Wow, this is class." I mean usually the office has an automatic coffee maker or a Keurig or even a Flavia.

But, to have a great big "Cadillac" of brewers that brews - get this - one cup at a time. You can have full strength caffeinated, or half-caf, or decaf. Pretty cool, huh?

And then you can set it for short or tall or grande size cups. You can hear the beans grinding as you're preparing your cup.

It takes about a minute or so - maybe a little longer to get your "perfect" cup.

You can even smell the aroma! Ahhhhh. If you've got to work, this is the place, right?

So. . .how come every time I've used this machine there's sediment at the bottom of my cup?

Which leads me to the moral of the story - bigger isn't always better.

Have a great day - we're almost to Friday!
