When my parents were visiting not long ago I went to the store to get decaf coffee pods for them. The shelves where they normally could be found were empty. I looked at other stores and still I couldn't find them. And unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, continue...) this particular coffeemaker can't use other brands of coffee pods.
Oh no, I thought, they must be discontinuing this coffeemaker and its pods. I need a new coffeemaker.
I bought this coffeemaker after sampling the coffee at Williams-Sonoma. There were tons of different pods (called K-cups) and they seemed readily available. Target had them. Williams-Sonoma had them. In my mind, I think I must have imagined dozens of other places that would have them. My problem seemed to be solved.
Or was it?
Last week I went to Williams-Sonoma to buy more K-cups. You can just guess what happened. It starts with a dis and ends with a continued. They no longer carry them. And neither, unfortunately, does Target (who only ever carried two varieties of which I was tiring).
My name is Amy and I have a problem.
I don't normally hoard things. Really I don't. But I went a little crazy at the Keurig site. I don't have to worry about buying more K-cups for approximately 300 1-cup-aday days.
p.s. The original coffee pods for coffeemaker number one indeed have not been discontinued and can now be found just about everywhere, including my grocery store.
