Suddenly, after a short period of reduced functioning, our coffee machine passed on. It entered the repair shop June 12th with an initial diagnosis of a failing pump. Later was added a failing heater and poor suction. Repeated attempts to recover the device resulted in a failure of the cost-benefit analysis.
The machine bound into our world delivering over 20 cups in the first evening. From then on, each morning it reliably delivered two cups of coffee to me, and God knows for the rest of the family. It served us well at dinner parties delivering countless cappuccino's and lattes.
In lieu of flowers please send donations to you favourite charity.
