COFFEE MAKER FAIL.
« on: May 10, 2011, 09:15:35 pm »
Damn coffee maker.

It takes about an half hour for it to make a whole pot of coffee.

That's like 2.5 space years.....

My guess is that it is probably mineral deposits causing your problems.  Try running vinegar through it once or twice, then running water through it a few times until it doesn't smell like vinegar any more.

What he said.  I've had good results with that before myself.  White vinegar is best, I hear.

or buy a packet of CLR at the hardware store, mix it in with a pot of water and run it through a few times. That'll take it back to almost brand-new, but be sure to run a few pots of fresh water afterward to flush it out. I don't think you want to drink CLR.

I will try that. Waiting half an hour for coffee isn't healthy.

instead of waiting for the whole pot to fill up just put your cup under the thing and let it run fresh coffee right into your cup. When cup is full, stick the pot under there while you pull the cup out and enjoy your cup while it FILLS THE POT IT'S THAT EASY!!

Thanks for the thread, guys, reminded me I am OUT of coffee at work.

Would NOT have been a good day.

Thank you.  I remembered coffee.

I've become a huge fan of these things.

Available from Asian groceries for making Vietnamese (iced) coffee.

Takes just a few minutes for a fresh brewed cup, require zero sharing with coworkers, easy to wash regularly, no paper waste from the filters, no glass pot to be broken (of course, we all know decent coffee makers use metal carafes anymore), and they're made doubly awesome if you work in an office with a point-of-use water heater on the water cooler.
