Is my SO the only one who can't operate the coffee maker?

He has made mud, mud with grounds in it, old mud (forgot to empty out the coffee filter), cofftea... It is horrid!

This morning he had an early appointment, got up and made coffee, brought some to me and woke me up... I was terrified to drink it. But it was actually good! That's a first.

  • maybe you could fill the new filter and water reserve so he just has to turn it on?

  • Congrats on the good coffee! You sure he didn't run to Dunkin Donuts? LOL Just kidding. My DH is okay with it, but I am soooooooooo anal about my coffee, I try to beat him to the punch in making it!

  • I wake HIM up in the morning with coffee, but I had to take pain meds last night and was completely dead to the world when the alarm went off. I'm almost always the one to make coffee, unless it is the weekend. Even then, he'll ask me to do it. lol

  • My husband has never once made coffee himself. He would have no idea how to do it.

  • No. At my house, I am the one who can't make coffee. That's because I've never had to. My hubby gets up first every morning, mkes the coffee and it's always waiting for me whenever I decide to get up.
