Aah, I just finished a great cup of coffee, but things didn't start out that way. My old coffeemaker broke. The top just fell off, making pouring the coffee awkward and even slightly dangerous. I decided I'd better get a new one because I could scaled myself with the old one. Since it made the best coffeemaker I ever had, I tried to order a new one, only to find out they don't make them anymore. I could order just the carafe, but it would cost me more than I originally paid for the whole coffeemaker! Now I had no choice but to buy a new one.
