Starbucks coffee maker recall

Good News! The crappy coffee maker that we bought from Starbucks last year is being recalled. It is the "Barista 8-cup Thermal Coffeemaker" It is so drippy and has to be run twice to get the water to finish going through.

I guess the best news is that I didn't burn down the apartment complex with it! It will be a bit of a pain to return it but I'm just happy to get our money back, an offer to buy an upgraded model for the same $ amount they are returning and a free pound of coffee.

The discounted coffee maker they are offering is a De Longhi. Anyone have one of those?

...just nosey, but how much would they charge for one? Their coffee is so expensive that I'd assume that the hardware was also over the top also.

Re: Starbucks coffee maker recall

We bought this coffee maker on sale for $99.99. They are rebating $99.90, so I guess we'll just be out that 9 cents!! ha

Re: Starbucks coffee maker recall

A small hijack........the regulars know I am addicted to those Starbucks
Frappuccinos (prefer the coffee flavor). It's about the only coffee I
drink any more. However, the other night I am out with friends
and ordered a decaf after dinner. It was fabulous!!! The one other
person who ordered it thought so too. I had the waitress check and it
was "Douwe Egberts". Never heard of it, but I'm considering makin'
the switch.
