We're not shopping at Sam's Club anymore because of their racist CEO, a position that is made easier by the fact that BJ's just put a store in a couple of blocks away, offering pretty much the same stuff at the same prices. We bought a Ninja Coffee Bar at BJ's today. With it, we can make a regular sized cup, a larger cub, a half carafe, or a full carafe of hot coffee, or we can also brew iced coffee and a number of specialty brews. Since we will mostly be making regular coffees, at least until the summer heat comes, we can also choose between a classic brew or a rich brew, for a stronger coffee. That's the up-side. The down-side is that we might have to go back to school for six months to figure out how to make it work. Or it might turn out like my juicer, something that's very nice except that it's so much of a hassle to use and to clean that I have only used it a few times. Usually, I don't have to bother with directions but, with this thing, I am reading the instructions before I even try it, as it has a complicated look about it, and a lot of pieces. Right now, I'd like a cup of coffee but if I make a pot of coffee in the regular drip coffeemaker, my wife will get upset because I'm not using the new one. Time will tell.
