    We went 15 years, with another brand, until a mishap broke the carrafe. A replacement was outrageous, and would need to be shipped in, so we decided to spend a lot less, and bought a MR. Coffee.
    (Do not repeat our mistake. Not one of the 6 we have been sent, has made it to the warranty date. I had to ship them the first one at my expense, and told them to get stuffed on 2-6.
    We are still waiting and it can take as long as two weeks for the replacement to arrive.
    I want my coffee! [GR]
    @tacmotusn made a suggestion in the shoutbox, and this morning I decided to give it a try.
    I filled a coffee filter with ground coffee suitable for a drip coffee machine. Gathered it carefully, and stapled it shut. Put on a pot of water, and brought it to a boil, then removed heat and let it steep like tea. When the color looked acceptable, I dipped coffee from the pan, and I'm haveing my first cup of coffee at home, in more than a week.
    Thanks for the idea, TAC[ghrit]

    You all do know that you can boil coffee in a pot let it set, pour a sprinkle of salt in the pot the grounds will settle, and wa la, coffee.

    Congratulations Gyro Gearloose aka Kellory. I knew you could do it.
    .
    You see folks, Kellory is owed a working coffee pot by Mr. Coffee. He don't want to spend a damn extra nickel to make coffee any other way. He has succeeded. It ain't rocket science, and soon hopefully he will have his replacement Mr. Coffee free.

    All your suggestions for better coffee makers mean nothing at this point. jus sayin'

    This is what I use when ever a coffee fix is required.. Bring the water to a boil, put in the basket, lower the heat and let it purk for about half an hour.. MMMM, good strong Lifer juice!!

    We're refined monkeys around here. We bought a Krupps 4 shot expresso machine for $60 bucks and were so impressed with it we bought another so that my wife and I have our coffee ready at the same time in the morning!
    We both have a full pot each!

    Rockets? ROCKETS?! Now there's an idea, where did I leave that JATO rocket? That should speed up delivery and brew it in flight! Now what did I do with that mobile rocket launcher and games tracking system.....(I wonder what it will do to the taste, though)......:cautious:

    Never tried the Single serving, however, I have tried multiple versions of the Expresso Machines and MR Coffee was the worst only lasting about 2 months, Krupps is awesome had my last one for over 2 years replaced it before there was even a problem. The old one is in storage just in case, don't want to end up like Kellory, hating life without a decent cup of coffee!;)
    Starbucks tasting Latte's for about 50 cents!

    I'm thinking that green unroasted coffee beans will last a good long time in a burlap sack, imagine they could be kept almost indefinitely in a vacuum sealed container with some oxygen absorbers. Roasting your own is a pretty simple procedure, even if over a small fire. You won't be able to conceal your location though because the smell of roasting coffee carries for miles. :D

    The longer a coffee bean is roasted the less caffeine is contains. I tried to buy a 50 lb bag of unroasted beans, They go for about $7 a pound. If you make coffee out of green beans I think it might give ya a heart attack! YEAH BRING IT ON!!!:cool:
