Well, I tried.
My good old reliable office coffee maker is still good, old and reliable.
I did try to update and upgrade with a percolator thinking it may be a welcomed change since I know they make the coffee PIPING hot! I just could not find the right combo of water/coffee/grind so I am mothballing it for now and will try again in the cooler months.
Until then, it is Friday in America! I think I shall have another cup.
