My day does not and can not begin until I have had several cups of coffee...so I always pack a coffee maker when I go to hotels. I know..it may seem strange, but who the heck wants to get out of bed, get dressed, and wander around looking for a place to buy a cup of coffee. Heck..I would have it gone by the time I got back to my room and have to turn around again and go back. Does anyone else do this, or am I the only frugal one thats to cheap to buy my morning coffee? Many times I like to have a few cups in the evenings too, so to me its worth it when its jammie time and relax time.
