ok the worst thing to happen when everyone needs to get out for work/school/whatever is to come down and find the coffee maker has died.
This happened here this morning, at 5:30 this morning there still was no coffee .... 3 very unhappy people for sure.
I'm asking, no begging, for some suggestions on a good coffee maker, that doesn't cost an arm or leg, but makes at least 12 cups relatively quickly. We are desperate. Not having that big pot in the early morning makes for a very unhappy family
