Question 303 Perking Up Soon! Where Have You Gone Jo Di Maggio and Mr. Coffee?

It arrived yesterday, out of the past.  My circa 1975 percolator.   I speculated on the Amazon reviews and questions last post.

When I ordered it from Amazon because I couldn’t find it in  any local stores or even at Good Will or the Salvation Army, it had 302 “answered questions” and over 3000 reviews.

On a coffee pot.

This pot…. my new pot….

Coffee Pot

 

I am really trying to think of a question I can ask about it, but after just perking some coffee and having that smell waft through the house I can’t come up with one.

And the taste…. so un-Mr. Coffee.

Sorry again, Joe Di Maggio.    You and the Mr. Coffee clones have had a good run.  Back to the future does not need a De Lorean.

  1. One of my strongest childhood memories is the sound and smell of coffee percolating while my parents played bridge with friends. It’s all mixed up with the sound of cards being shuffled and the taste of the butter mints that my brother and I would “sneak” from the snack bowls.
