|10/13/18 Farewell, reliable friend!|
My two-cup Krups has been making my coffee every morning since the ‘80s when I first moved out as an adult. Suddenly on Friday, it died. This sketch for InkTober is a memorial and farewell to a reliable hard worker. (More InkTober sketches from last week are coming up, but this one deserved its own post.)
Now I have to decide what to replace it with. I don’t want one that makes 10 cups (I already have one of those in the basement for when we have the rare house guest), makes ridiculously wasteful single K-cups, plays music, must be programmed or is smarter than I am. All I want is one good cup of coffee each for Greg and me.
Facebook friends have suggested various solutions, including a French press, which sounds the least wasteful because it uses no disposable filters. For now I have my old single-cup plastic cone to get us through.
