I always tell people when they ask if I want coffee, that I have not gotten old enough for it yet. Well, I am forty now and still don't like it so I guess I never will. I was given this Cooks coffeemaker however. So I put it to good use brewing tea! As much as I have a disdain for coffee, I love tea! I can make tea by boiling water on the stove, but I believe it brews better with two tea bags and water in the Cooks coffeemaker. I remember my grandmother brewing tea in a coffeemaker years ago and after she died I could never seem to find the right taste for tea. I think I really discovered her touch. It was brewing it in a coffeemaker. The thing I also like about the Cooks coffeemaker is when I have guests, I can make them coffee if I need to. I believe that is why it was given to me in the first place. The giver of the gift expects coffee when they visit. The Cooks 12 Cup Coffeemaker is easy to use, extremely easy to clean up and not bulky so it stores relatively easy. It is also good for multitasking, in case if you have to say, coffee or tea anyone!
