let me start by saying that my mom and dad are wonderful.
They only make coffee 4 cups at a time. Andrew took over for a day and was making a pot at a time of 'strong' coffee. My mom had to add hot water to hers, Andrew and I thought it should have been stronger. Everyone gets 3/4 of a cup and then it's gone and my dad gets mad. I even brought my own coffee from home and I will get one of the french presses down so I can be the boss of what I'm drinking: good strong black caffeinated coffee.
