Latte, espresso, chai and too many of the appliances

I love coffee, espresso, lattes, cappuccino, chai, loose leaf and bagged tea and iced tea. Consequently one whole 20 ft kitchen counter is covered by an espresso machine, drip coffee maker , percolator, Keurig, French presses, and tea pots. The 2 20 ft shelves above that are filled with teas, coffees, coffee syrups and between are hanging my coffee mug collection from all over Europe and the US. Oh, and coffee grinders. My question is: Might I possibly be on the verge of becoming a caffein hoarder? Am I the only one?

Could be....I love coffee myself but I am a simple man. I still find myself amused by the look on the face of the kid behind the Starbucks counter several years ago. I asked him for cup of regular black coffee. I thought he was gonna have to get his supervisor to help him.

I don't know if you're the only one, but I think you're past the verge!

Should have paid with a couple of $2 bills and really sent him into cardiac arrest!

Yes. Yes, you are. However, check out my signature line, it may apply to your coffee and tea appliance hoarding.

You are a prime candidate for an intervention. Pack up all your gear and supplies and lock them away somewhere very inconvenient. Buy yourself a large jar of the cheapest instant coffee you can find. Every morning stir a double dose of instant coffee into a glass of body temperature water and chug it down as fast as you can. Repeat as needed and revel in your vacant counter/shelf space and all the productive uses you can put it to.

To fill the counter space consider a KA mixer, a nuwave oven, juicer, roaster, toaster and coaster. Please post a picture.

This just begs the question Rasp, do you have counter space to work on? Or do you do all your meal prep on the kitchen table?
