Tragedy.  Total and utter tragedy.  We have had the same coffee maker since......well forever.  It is our very first coffee maker. We got it shortly after we were married - so it has been our faithful companion for over 25 years. It has been with us every single morning bringing complete happiness to our hearts. It is one of those coffee makers that mounts under the cabinet. It has no timer. No bells, no whistles, no bean grinder.  Just a simple coffee maker. Today the glass carafe of our dear devoted coffee maker shattered. NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!  No coffee!  No morning cup of Joe! No kickstart to the day!  TRAGIC! So of course now I am in desperate search for a replacement glass carafe! The coffee maker is no longer produced and it could be quite the task to find a replacement carafe.  I have to find one.  We have tried fancy coffee makers but nothing makes a cup of coffee like our dear faithful old coffee maker.  There is something about it that just makes the perfect cup. I am fairly certain Mr. Yesteryear Acres has something to do with the perfection of our morning coffee. He buys the very best coffee beans (Mahogany is his favorite) and grinds them fresh each morning. He never brews flavored coffee. EGAD!  Mr. Yesteryear Acres would perish! Just rich deep dark lovely coffee.  Whenever I ask him his secret - he says it is his good ole coffee maker.  Dear coffee maker - I am on the hunt! I will find a new carafe for you!  Hang in there!
