...a nation turns its sleepy eyes toward you.

Before Joltin' Joe DiMaggio could pitch for Mr. Coffee, the now ubiquitous household appliance needed to be created. Samuel Glazer along with a business partner, did that in the early 1970's. He died this week in Cleveland.

So here's to you, Samuel Glazer. This morning cup is for you (although mine was a Hamilton Beach coffee maker!).

I have a Gevalia brand now but have had Mr. Coffee's in the past. Thank you Mr. Glazer for making my mornings much easier.
