Dr. Drip is a Dream Date

Coffee is very important to me.  I can and do start the day without it, but if I don’t have some by 10:00 things can get a little ugly.

My coffee maker has been a faithful and trusty servant and has served me well for years.  (How many we can’t quite remember.)

A couple of weeks ago her burner stopped heating before the pot was empty; a little jiggling set everything right.

Then yesterday I came in to the kitchen and she was gone, passed quietly in the night.

Fortunately, my friend had given me a box of Dr. Drip.  Not instant, nope, brewed coffee instantly.  Sort of like a disposable Chemex.

The coffee is very good (I know these things.)  Perfect for power outages (of which we have many) or any natural disasters (like your coffee pot dying.)  They mention something about fishing and camping as well; to that, I cannot attest.  Dr. Drip Coffee here.

Dr. Drip has done nothing for me other than give me a little pep; while valuable, I would not consider it compensation.

  1. Ah I see I need Dr Drip as a backup in the very least! You can wait until 10:00 am…it is by 8:00 for my fix!

  2. I know a lot of people prefer a drip coffee like this so good to hear another opinion! I've been using a french press for years at home and the coffee at our office (from a standard mr. coffee pot) just can't compare. Maybe you just prefer what you were raised with?

  3. Hi Patricia, My faithful coffee pot went to heaven last week, also. Fortunately, I had a French press–just in case. I do not function at all without my coffee–fortunately, there is a ton of new research making the rounds regarding the benefits of coffee. Now, at least, I can cut my guilt factor by about 25%. Be well. Mary

  4. just in the knick of time. my coffee maker has been acting out of sorts and this Mr. Drip and I might need a rendez-vous!

  5. I'm with Jenny: Kit-chen Tour! Kit-chen Tour!! As we're on the brink of some kitchen sprucing ourselves, I'm curious as to your take on the marble countertops…

    And yes, my name is Pam and I, too, am a coffee-aholic 😉
