Days are supposed to start off quiet, with a cup of freshly made coffee from a very expensive, complicated, European coffee machine. My day didn't. My machine sounded different when the beans were grinding. There was some malfunction and the beans did
not grind and hot water only was in the coffee carafe. Not a good sign. The machine, when on our counter, is bigger than I am , so I needed to get a two step ladder to see inside of the coffee hopper. I also needed a flash light. I removed the beans
into a Starbucks cup that was sitting on the counter. Being helpful, but not,Bob knocked over the cup and there were my beans that I import from Chicago, all over the floor. I was getting a little testy . I took the hopper off, cleaned off what I could from
the grinder and put water in the proper container of the pot. I just don't know why, but the water poured out onto the counter and then onto the floor. The day before I had someone in to just concentrate on cleaning the kitchen. Too bad. It was now a scene
of coffee beans and some water. Not to worry. I Would make coffee in the Mr. Coffee that I had stored away. That would have worked, except I only had beans, no ground coffee. I went out for coffee and then had a 90 minute massage that made me forget my earlier
stress.I'll try the coffee machine manyana. I'm to mellow right now. I don't want to spoil the feeling. .
