Road Trip

Would you pay $11,000 for this "coffee pot?" Me neither. But I might be tempted into jumping in the car and driving to a coffee shop that has one. I HAVE to find out what the fuss is all about. After all, I am a huge caffeine junkie and coffee is my favorite source of it.

I was wasting time this morning when I happened upon a story about this particular "coffee pot". The next thing you know, the coffee in my own cup started to taste a bit off. Sure, it was rich, dark and a bit bold for most of my friends and until now, I liked it. I used to really like my grind and brew coffee pot too. Since reading this though, it is beginning to look a bit tired to me. It's not as shiny as it used to be and I'm not feeling the love anymore.

Lucky for me, Ypsilanti, MI is not too far to drive to sample what this brewing orgasmatron of the coffee world has that my tired old pot does not. In fact, looking at the map locations on Clover's website, I have begun to hatch a plot for my road trip to Virginia this spring. Pit stops will include anyplace that has one of these things. I love a road trip that has a theme.

I read the articles, and the first thing that stunned me, apart from the ridiculous price, was that it doesn't even make espresso!

What a croc, reminds me of the Emperor's New Clothes!!!

Insane price WT. And it is meant to brew coffee that costs $30/pound and up. I wasn't aware that (outside of Blue Mountain coffee from Jamaica) there were such roasts. I must live a sheltered life.

I would love to accompany you on your trek to Ypsi. I have missed too many cups with my bff. Let's give it an A.N.R. rating ;-)

Hey there Fanette has emerged from lurkdom. I knew the coffee would get her. I say lets go. We can start Monday with a rev up in Ypsi and end up at the casino. Sounds like a great birthday and road trip all rolled into one. Not as good as last year's road trip to the windy city, but fun anyhow. A.N.R. rating indeed!
