The Day the Office Coffee Makers Went Silent

So yesterday was an odd day working in Boston - the coffee makers were mostly silent at work. The water main break that happened over the weekend created a boil water advisory for most of metro Boston through the workday Monday.

I saw people toting coffee makers and gallon jugs of water into work early in the day on Monday for the morning ritual. It was a little surreal. Word spread through the office of what store was serving coffee and what store wasn't. The whole morning routine was thrown for a bit as a result. The office makers that are hooked into a water line were DOA for Monday, because they would have been pulling water from the contaminated water lines. Personally, my Nespresso Essenza that I have on my desk at work had "good" water in it from Friday, and performed perfectly in the face of the minor crisis. Clean water, relatively little water used with each brew - it was good for the day.
