A few months ago my employers thought it would be nice to install a coffee pot, one of the big mamoth ones that can hold 4 pots on 4 different heating elements. Worked out great, people were drinking coffee, I always ran into people I hadn't seen in a while. Generally, the coffee stank but it wasn't so bad that we wouldn't drink it.
Then one day it was gone. Apparently, after someone decided they wanted to steal the entire stash of crappy coffee grounds, they figured it was just costing too much so they took it away.
Well, where did that leave us coffee drinkers? It left us at our own devices. And the I.T. Departments device was a crappy old coffee pot that has been in use for the entire 5 years I've been here and the one that I keep complaining about no one cleaning. I think I'm the only person who ever used soap on the damn thing. But I digress..
I refuse to drink out of the cesspool of a coffee pot.
So, I went out and bought my own little coffee pot and all my supplies to set up my coffee bar right here in my office and you know what? It's awesome! My boss in the office next to me likes the smell and I like to drink it so hey, it all works out.
