RIP my Coffeemaker and How Gevalia saved the Queen

This morning our coffeemaker died and may it rest in peace.  Now granted, it was a wedding gift back in 1998 so I think it had a good, long and happy life.  I loved how it lived under my cabinet, reliably dispensing my daily dose of caffeine every morning, without fail.  It is survived by an antique sugar bowl, assorted coffee cups, a Boden coffee grinder and a Boden French Press.  We knew it had not been well the last few days, so this was not a total shock.  It was a Black & Decker SpaceMaker and it was a good and faithful friend.  After an appropriate period of mourning, and drinking my coffee black, I am thinking of buying this new Black & Decker SDC850 SpaceMaker Coffeemaker.  But that was not going to help me get my caffeine fix at 6 AM this morning.

The King and I were staring at each other, debating our choices.  I had some Free Nescafe samples but they were flavored and neither one of us likes flavored coffee.  I found the jar of Folger’s instant that I keep for my parents, but we nixed that also since it was decaf — and instant– ok call me a coffee snob I don’t care.  Decaf totally defeats the point anyhow.  We were about to play “rock, paper, scissors” to see who was going to run to the Circle K for coffee…when the King said, “Hey, didn’t we get a free coffeemaker a while back?”  Why, YES we did!  So off to the basement stockpile room he went, and (cue cheering crowd sound effect) when he returned he had the Holy Grail in his hands…the FREE coffeemaker that I got from Gevalia last month!  I unwrapped that box like a kid on Christmas morning and washed it as fast as my non-caffeined hands would go.  There was even a coffee scoop and filters in the box!  And since we still had some of their yummy beans left, we were able to save the morning in spectacular fashion.  Good thing because I am not as nice of a person without my caffeine.

Gevalia coffeemaker and coffee


The offer that I took advantage of IS still available! 

Score yourself a FREE Coffeemaker + get FOUR bags of top quality Gevalia tea or coffee for Only $9.99, shipping included.  

Plus it comes fast.  Not Jimmy John’s fast, but within a week I had my order.

Here is how it works:

  1. Go to Gevalia through this link in order to score the FREE coffeemaker.
  2. Select your 4 coffee or tea choices.
  3. When my order arrived, all I did was go on their website and cancel the auto-delivery.  It literally took 30 seconds, and I did not have to call or jump through hoops.  Make sure you do cancel unless you want to stay in the program.

We use whole bean coffee because the King loves fresh ground, and I have to say it is the best smell ever when he is grinding those beans.  There are so many kinds of coffee to choose from I had trouble, but we went with these 4 and each one is a great choice.  I almost ordered the Civet coffee, but the idea that those beans were first eaten by a big cat…well, it is not for me.  Sometimes delicacy = gross IMO.  LOL. 


There is also an awesome $1.00 off ONE (1) GEVALIA Coffee – 12 oz coupon available if you want to buy the coffee in a store.  I know Walmart and Target carry it.
