My Desktop Coffee machine died today
I've barely had it a month and my Desktop Coffee maker has decided its not going to work anymore. Its got power but won't actually make me any coffee I'm massively gutted as its summer holidays and I don't have the break time coffee provisions to fall back on.
In other news my Bento box is in excellent condition and I enjoyed some rather nice Hoi Sin noodles for my lunch.

Oh no caffeine shortage. Have you tried turning it on and off?

Have you tried chucking it out the window and retesting?

I bought a cheap one from Asda. Works well.

My £7 coffee machine from co-op functioned perfectly for 5 years. It was eventually replaced by a better model (got it as a wedding gift). Brought it in to work to replace a dead unit, and some t--ser broke the jug within 2 days.

May I suggest a kettle?

It's being replaced by Firebox but still I'm going to be machineless till next week. I'm risking a replacement rather than a refund or credit note as when it was working it was brilliant. It makes filter coffee by the cup in less time than it take our kettle to boil

If it is proper coffee you are after, get one of the 'mug top' filters. Comes in 3 bits, a lid, the water container/drip and the filter. I've been using one for years.

No! They make instant.

I prefer loose ground coffee to those prepacked things, that way my first coffee in a morning can be an extra strong heaped scoop. Also there is more variety in available products and the possibility to nip over Londis to get more if needs be.

My first cup is Taylor's Hot Lava Java, No.6 on the scale of 1 to 5.

Linky linky! Show us the machine!
I buy coffee from coffee compass (but Richard is on holiday this week, so you'll have to wait if you want some) by the box-load. We usually get some interesting stuff - think we're on the Zimbabwean at the mo.
Still, Taylors is excellent, just a bit expensive for use in the office, and lacks the variety we get at Coffee Compass.
