Java jones: An in-house story

Our office manager is not a bad man. Everyone likes him, and he looks out for all of us.

But I am beginning to wonder if he brings puppies to orphanages on weekends and then leaves with them an hour later. Because that’s how we feel right now.

Last week, he installed “on spec” a coffeemaker than brews individual cups of flavored coffees and hot chocolate. Instantly. Honest — it takes less time to brew a cup than it does to pour one for yourself. If you’ve seen them around, trust us: They are great.

Just not great enough to keep — it goes back to the company this week, and we’re all pretty bummed.

“It costs five times what we pay now for coffee,” he says. “It’s this or health insurance.”

I’m willing to give it a shot… anyone else?
