I am so sad right now. A few minutes ago I was very, very happy. Darn that few minutes.
You see, several weeks ago our beloved C1000 coffee maker was on the fritz. I called the service number, packed up the machine, sent it back to the manufacturer, paid $250.00 to get an "overhaul" and just got our beautiful machine back tonight! YAY, well, uh, not really.
When I went to plug it in, reset it and start it up I could smell the luxurious coffee in the grinder, I anticipated the carmely golden brown drink to flow through the spout and into my cup.
Nada, nope nothing. I looked at the manual, repeated procedures multiple times and still. It doesn't work.
And my next thought, $250 for wha??? Luckily I have my trusty french press to fill in the gap (and a phone call to make).
