One Thing A Coffee Addict Does Not Want to Wake Up To

The other morning, beginning my week, I woke up to this lovely note by our coffee maker …

Coffee Machine Broke

I am not sure if the three little hearts at the bottom of this note were meant to make me smile? You see, I woke up with my kids before school, the worse time of day to not have a big ole cup of coffee. I was sad. Bummed. I may have even pouted.

A new coffee machine, even a cheap one, just wasn’t in our budget until his payday either, so all week we went without coffee. Okay my fiance didn’t go without because he is able to drink .. gasp .. instant coffee. Gag me with a spoon! I cannot handle instant coffee, but rather had hot tea all week long.

I survived. Now it’s end of week and I am ready for a coffee machine, just a cheap cheap coffee machine, whatever we can afford that gets that coffee caffeine flowing into my blood stream for a long weekend with my kiddos!

CLOSED AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker Giveaway #win #giveaway #contest



This is it, we are into November and today is my fourth giveaway for the 2011 Holiday Gift Guide at Happily Blended! Today’s feature is the AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker.

About AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker

The AeroPress utilizes a rapid, total immersion brewing process that is unlike that of other press-type coffee makers. AeroPress brewed coffee is smooth and rich, without the bitterness and high acidity found in coffee brewed by traditional, press or drip processes.

In these economic times, the AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker is a budget-minded mom’s best friend. A latte made with an AeroPress is as good as it gets and you can save the $3.50 you were spending daily at the coffee shop.  Amazing savings!

My Personal Thoughts on AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker

I love the idea that I can save money with this product, but I am not an espresso dinker so I use this more for coffee purposes. I would think taking into consideration the cost of my already ground coffee I purchase and compare that with the price of beans not grounded yet I would be saving some money and not wasting coffee.

I tend to waste a lot of coffee using my regular coffee brewer. This is a money saving machine for those who want a simple coffee or espresso in the morning!

Get this For your own Family! Yes, I said it, one person will be randomly selected to win their very own AeroPress Coffee and Espresso Maker!
