I broke my coffee maker this morning.

I woke up a little late, though not late enough that I couldn't have a little breakfast before traipsing off to the office. I lined a small bowl with baby spinach leaves and some mushrooms, dropped some sea salt and fresh black pepper in there, then cracked two eggs in there and stuck it in the oven that had been preheating while I was making my coffee.

15 minutes later, my baked eggs were ready and I went to pour myself some coffee, only to find that instead of the nice dark french roast i was expecting, there was a light brown liquid in its place.

Yes my dear friends, I put the coffee grounds in the water receptacle.
