I Love You Coffee Robot

Those of you who are familiar with my The Fefe Monster and The Coffee Fanatic post already know that my love of coffee is so great that “I dream of the day they invent a ‘coffee Robot’ that will brew coffee to my liking and wheel it in to me first thing in the morning saying, with electronic intonation, ‘Here is your coffee…Madeline.’” For those of you who have not yet read the entry, now you know, I long for a robotic coffee slave.
You may laugh, thinking that I am merely joking, but let me assure you, I am rather serious. I have spent many a lazy mornings in bed dreaming of my Coffee Robot, her tin can legs, her flashing R2-D2 lights, and her electronic purr. On indecently early alarm-clock-mornings I experience the excruciating anguish of her truancy and as I pull my weary bones from the warm and feathery comforts of my bed, I am welcomed by the unsavory bite of cold and the shameful sting of reality: I am the coffee robot.

Where can I get one of these 'coffee robbots'??? Does it need batteries? How fine should I grind the beans? Help me peasant woman!

Coffee Robot is not just something you wind up like a toy. You have to find the coffee robot within; she is a state of mind, a way of life if you will.
