In our eternal struggle against coffee maker dependence my household had risen above the rest. Today marks the end of our dependence. Both Mer and I use a French press and my other roommate uses a single cup brewing system. Mer is now ready to make cold brew coffee and drink it by the gallon. When questioned about the sanity of this endeavor she said,
"Oh it will be funny. It will be really funny."
The jury is still out on the fourth roommate's coffee brewing methods but I suspect that she does not drink coffee. None-the-less I call this a triumph for the world of collegiate coffee dependence.
