So Much for Starbucks (2nd Verse)
November 27, 2006
Well, I waved bye-bye to my beloved Barista Aroma today.
It seems that they’ve been recalled, due to a fire hazard of some kind. Starbucks says they’ll send me a check, and suggested I go check out some new DeLonghi brewer at my local emporium of over-roasted coffee and indie xmas music (Starbucks).
Hmph. It’s getting harder and harder to find a decently priced coffee maker that is actually designed to brew a decent cup of coffee. For that matter, it’s getting harder to keep one.
If you’ve bought an 8-cup stainless steel Barista Aroma and haven’t heard from Starbucks, you need to A) unplug it before you burn the house down, and B) call Starbucks and see if it’s one of the recalled units.
Better safe than sorry.
