    I am distantly related to the family that used to own Bird's Custard. They sold out to Nestle. Does that mean I'm tainted?

    I shouldn't think so - but I expect you would like to make a tasteless joke now.

    Yes, I know

    It's Friday, I'm hot and tired, and I have had enough

    Since when did I ever tell tasteless jokes? I'm deeply offended.

    I have enough of:
    projectors that won't switch on
    computers that won't allow me to put the proxy in for no discernible reason
    teachers who look at me with puppy dog eyes because I can't get their new laptop sorted for them to take home
    sitting in a room with a server that is very very warm
    dealing with aging parents
    dealing with recalcitrant children (mine and others)
    doing all the housework/shopping/cleaning/dog walking despite the presence of said children at home)
    looking at smarta**** posts

    Enough?

    And now....back to topic

    I'm always tempted to get a coffee maker. Any recommendations for something cheap but decent?

    I had a Morphy Richards one which was pants - the jugs kept cracking and then when it was only about 2 years old, it started leaking. I bought a De Longhi one on special offer, and it is much better.

    My personal choice for coffee beans is Sumatran Gold Organic Fair Trade Coffee - 250g Beans.

    Also comes ground if you don't have a grinder, but since you can get one for around £20, I'd say go with the beans and keep it that bit fresher.

    At home I switched to an espresso maker rather than filter, as I can easily do a single cup quantity of industrial strength coffee.

    For the beans, Costco do big bags of beans which Starbucks have blended for them, which I find makes a very decent cappuccino.

    I still recommend a Senseo. Fast, and good coffee. The coffee pods are reasonably priced as well, commonly available in your average supermarket and there's a good range.
