Coffee, Tea for Me

Anyone who knows me very well knows I love coffee! As a matter of fact I have at least 3 cups of coffee to get my day started. Sometimes I have a cup around 3:00 in the afternoon, then after supper we always make a pot of Decaf. I love the taste of coffee, I drink it black and strong, none of the wussy coffee with sugar and cream in it!

For years I have had a Bunn coffee maker, those things last about 6 or 7 years. Well mine was on it's last leg, so my son told me he would buy me one for Christmas. We didn't have time to shop for one while he was here, but I knew I was going to jump ship and buy a different brand this time. I wanted one that had this neat spigot that dispenses hot water. I always drink a lot of hot tea in the winter as well.

I had spotted this model at Dine a restaurant supply store. It's a Waring Pro, it's actually a commercial brand and has a second burner and pot. I think a second pot would be great for entertaining.

I love being able to dispense hot water any time I want for tea or hot chocolate!

This is awesome! I love the second burner and hot water dispenser! Did they have more there?

I love it!!! I'll have to check around here to see if it is available in Dallas. I don't know of any restaurant supply houses close, but I bet Cat Daddy does. He built Dallas, you know, or so he says. BTW, a couple of gals sell yellow box at Warrenton. Go see Hayley at Cottage Gatherings. I always get a pair from her for my souvenir of the show. You will be hooked. Debbie

I love coffee too, but I'm a coffee wimp. I get the hazelnut extra light...My husband makes cowboy coffee-I can't even drink it! Theresa, I want you to come right over to my house and make the whole thing over! When I look at your pictures it's like looking into a dream. What's for sale gal? Anything in those pictures you were showing? Did you know you can sell stuff on a site called It's handmade stuff, but they have a vintage category. I'm bummin that you aren't going to be at Brimfield. My friends Doreen, Glen and Wayne are going either. Keep sipping! J- ps I still can't figure out how to be a follower on your blog.

Hi Theresa, thank for the nice comments on Country Roads. I've known Gloria forever it seems. You should see her house, pretty cool. I'm trying to get more photos on my blog of the store. If you scroll down, I think there are some older posts with flickr slideshows. Thats want I want to post again. . . its just time. I'll be in touch, take care, Sue

Gloria has a website:
Wasn't sure if you knew that or not.

That is one big coffeemaker! I have to say it looks great there with all your crackling white paint and all. I need about two cups of coffee to get out the door, and then one more for good measure when I get to work. Tea at lunch, and then more coffee in the afternoon. What do they say, we're "coffee achievers"?

Hey Theresa, awesome coffee maker+. LOVE where you put it, on the little chippy table by the old crackle paint door, next to the collection of ironstone creamers(have one on my kitchen windowsill). Now that is style! Enjoy!

But I found out the other day at Sisters'...OH MY GOD...hers has got mine beat by at least 50 degrees...BELOW o...ARGH!

Hugs Sis...s

I always say that I am too young to drink coffe...and believe me, I am not! Just never developed the taste for it. Don't like hot tea either. I feel so socially inept!
Now, if I could just find one of those machines with a bourbon spigot on it! :)
