Lazy Man's Guide to Making Coffee

Updated on July 20, 2014

I have a secret. Don't tell anyone else, but I have a problem. I am a coffee snob, but I am also exceedingly lazy. Not a good mix when the really good coffee takes some effort and work to create.

My all time favorite coffee concoction is the icy goodness they call the frappe.

I love few things better than a good frappe, but I hate taking the time and effort to make one myself; and I certainly do not want to be stuck with the horrible uneven black tar some people call coffee from a standard peculator.

Yuck! I would rather drain, some hot water through my sweaty socks. The flavor might be better, after all.

My snobbery and laziness often send me directly into the devil's den. You know the place; that green and white logo-ed monstrosity, which I believe is government chartered to set up stores every 1/2 mile. Yup, soon enough shopping malls will be replaced by giant Starbuck's outlets.

But I digress. In want to good coffee; too lazy to make my own, but needing a daily fix, I am often driven to go to my local Starbucks, where the prices are equal to some countries national debt. Where the coffee is serviceable, if a little bit burned and the whole place reeks of patchouli and the incredibly "hip" youths that frankly scare an old man like me.

This insanity must stop.

My new years resolution is to stop being such a coffee snob. (Hey, Starbucks itself is not GOOD coffee. It just isn't bad coffee)

I have tried out this Mr. Coffee BVMC-FM1 Frappe maker, pictured up to the right. A friend of mine has one at his house. Knowing my love of this iced beverage, he got me to try it out.

I have to admit, it was pretty darn good. And it doesn't take a Barrista or a 75 complicated and complex steps to mix up a decent frappe.

Nope, this Frappe maker seems perfectly suited for a lazy guy like myself. Nice. Simple. Easy. Quick. (Words I love)

Just check out the instructions to using this lazy Frappe lover's dream machine:

1. Add Coffee or Espresso

2. Add Water

3. Press Button.

4. Enjoy!

I am lazy, technophobic and scared of change, but heck, even I can handle that!

I am going to change this New Year's, and I will be enjoying making my own Frappe's in 2014. I hope you will too!

Want to find out more about this Frappe Maker for lazy folks like me. Just see how simple it is in this video and review.
