Coffee Dilemma’s – Who needs a Cup?

Phew… I did take just a bit of a break there. After the chaos and suffering of April from the A to Z challenge I really needed to take some time. It’s all gone now, the time… it spiraled off into the universe as a stream of clock hands and a busted Coffee Maker. Oh just to clarify my life was chaos. The suffering was nothing more then a way to make you read this. Well… except for the broken nail I got during that time frame which I already discussed (patent pending).

It seems there is not going to be enough coffee again in the house for a while. Today the third pot is now brewing for those of us allergic to both Chaos and Darkness, which is everyone in the house.  You see there are now six coffee drinkers in the house. We all use BIG cups, this is the one I have on my desk right now… 20oz coffee goodness holding Tigger-effic awesomeness. I figure My jitters should come with a mascot.

My middle Daughter wakes around 6:30 or 7am and she sometimes grabs a travel Mug for school. Two down out of a 12 cup coffee machine… twelve cups? There is not an 8oz cup in the house except measuring cups. 7:30 to 8am the other four people in the house wake up and stumble for the coffee super serum. That’s pot number 2 and sometimes 3, by 9am… NINE IN THE MORNING!

This is our machine… the side piece takes coffee grounds in case someone wants to make a cup at 10 at night… 11, 12, 1am and on it goes. Great machine, love it… but the pots are not big enough. So here is the dilemma… Should I get an urn, one of those big ones like a 96 ounce coffee supreme machine the kind they use at functions? Oh.. and I just made Pot number 4 for the day, Wife and I are both home, she on the phone all day doing office work and me typing here and there. Mom is working on a 2000 piece puzzle. I just heard my Son get home , Daughter will be soon… they may want coffee… so Put number 5 is in the pipe already.

60 Cup Commercial Coffee Urn (D50065)…. So what do you think? Seriously… I’m asking. I would have to find a different one since this one wouldn’t fit the mugs under it… but you get the idea right?

  1. Yikes! My mugs are just as big. Who uses dainty cups? We don’t go through quite as much coffee as that since there are fewer people in our house and generally, after my first pot, I’m done for the day. I switch to water with lemon through the day and then tea at night (I’m in weight loss mode). Interesting side note, my husband used to work for Sara Lee Coffee and Tea. We got free coffee for 18 years. The first time I had to buy it I almost choked. He came home smelling like coffee. It was delicious. Then he worked in a chocolate factory. No free chocolate but he came home smelling like fresh baked brownies 🙂 I don’t think I’d like one of the urns because I am not a fan of coffee that’s been on all day. I’d rather wait a minute and make a fresh pot. Just my opinion.

  2. My mom has one of those giant urns… she uses it at holiday gatherings. Sometimes she has to fill it multiple times. She just pulls it toward the edge of the counter to accommodate larger mugs.

    I always used large mugs but my coffee was getting cold too fast. I’ve been using smaller ones lately but refilling more often. I also got a mug warmer as a gag gift last Christmas but as it turns out, it’s pretty useful! 🙂

    I am a fountain of useless information.

  3. I second scr4pl80’s comment about the urn. I don’t want coffee that has been sitting for too long. I normally have a full pot by myself by 9am. I know cause I am the only one here drinking it. I will opt to suffer and wait for a fresh pot.

  4. I hit a point where I was so tired, or maybe bored that I was drinking a large 4 to 5 cups of coffee a day. It doesn’t keep me up though, I’m up anyway caffeine or no caffeine as I have insomnia. Coffee or no coffee bedtime is around 2 or 3 in the morning. Heck I could fall asleep with a cup of coffee in hand if it’s late enough and sleep like a baby…well that is until the actual baby demands my attention.

    I love fun mugs too! Mom had one made with my Shopgirl logo on it for Christmas…my second favorite was hand painted by one of my best friends since high school.
