What has coffee maker ratings got to do with...
cow boy coffee
You wanted to buy a great coffee maker to brew great coffee, so you read numerous coffee maker ratings and finally you found a brand that is said to be good and all by many people.
You buy that machine and then what? In the end, you are the one using the machine not the rest of the people. In the end, you still have to "brew" that coffee, so in the end it is still about you!
If you absolutely do not know how to brew the coffee, you would just contravene whatever is said about the coffee maker, don't you think so?
Here in the Last Great wilderness, I never bother with any branded coffee makers, I do it the cowboy style -open fire and a pot would suffice as coffee.
And seriously until now, I have no complain about the coffee, I wonder if any coffee maker ratings or reviews ever mentioned this sort of coffee maker!:)
