Sorcery and Cecelia, or the Exploding Coffee Pot

October 8, 2007

You know that coffee is close to a religion in our house. Yesterday, we were not even in the kitchen, and we hear this “popping” noise. R. went in and noticed coffee all over the place. Our coffee pot EXPLODED! It’s one of those carafe-type things – the coffee maker drips the coffee into the carafe and it keeps it warm. It’s glass lined, under vacuum – or at least it was under vacuum until yesterday when there must have been a pressure change, or some defect finally gave way, and bam.
These are the cracked-up insides of the pot (with and without flash):

BTW if you’re curious about the title of the post, check out the excellent YA book, Sorcery and Cecilia, or, the Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Wrede & Stevermer.
