Mad at Coffee
Half an hour ago I was happily grinding up some coffee beans, placing the ground coffee in a nice fresh filter, filling the carafe with filtered water, and flipping the switch on my coffee maker. I went to check my email and such while the perculations took place. Then I get back to the kitchen, expecting to simply pour a nice cup of coffee. Instead my coffee maker has somehow spewed coffee grounds all over the top of (and into) the carafe, gotten jammed up, is barely trickling out some super strong coffee, and is dripping coffee and grounds down onto the hot plate at the bottom. I attempted to rescue a cup of coffee, and I'm drinking it now. But one more mouthful of coffee grounds and I dump this batch out.
