If you don't drink coffee and do not own a coffee maker would you still serve it at a holiday meal?

My family is coming to our home for Thanksgiving, we don't drink coffee and do not own a coffee maker, but family members do drink coffee. Would you go out and buy a coffee maker knowing you would probably never use it again for at least a year or would you ask someone else to bring a coffee maker and coffee if they would like some during the day?

  • I would ask someone to bring a coffee maker or borrow one from a friend. I do not think you should be expected to go out and buy one, although you can get them pretty cheap, but again, I do not think it would be inappropriate to just try and borrow one or get a family member to bring one. But if you are hosting I you may want to at least buy the coffee to go in it. IDK....that is just what I would do.

  • My family knows if they are coming to my house and they want coffee they better bring their own. I wouldn't even know where to begin in buying a coffee maker or coffee.

  • If it was me, I would buy a very inexpensive coffee maker that I could just use when guests were visiting. You can get decent ones for $20 or less. They can bring their own coffee though.

  • unless it was for my grandparents i wouldn't buy 1, but if they were going to stay with me then i would probably go buy i cheap one (b/c their my grandparents!!!)

  • "....don't drink coffee..."

    Oh....I must have blacked out for a minute there...just the thought of NOT drinking coffee. I...I...I think I'm okay now....

    ....wait...I need to go get a cup of coffee and ponder this one.
