Request to purchase coffee maker
Mindy, at our department meeting last
week, I agreed to research the purchase of a coffee maker for
the department. The research has yielded a clear preference, and
I am ready to make the purchase.
Potential uses for the coffee maker include service for
- Group meetings
- Coffee lovers
Consumer Reports recommended three specific coffee makers. The models and prices are listed in Table 1.
Table 1. Coffee maker options
and model #
|Drip||12 cups||Brown K345-6||$39.95|
|Percolator||12 cups||Toastmaker 89123||$24.00|
|Instant-reserve||15 cups||Benn H001-A2||$89.50|
Please initial the attached requisition for the instant-reserve coffee maker, written to Slade's Hardware against our budget #50. Coffee can be purchased out of petty cash. I will stop on the way home from work to purchase the coffee maker and a couple of varieties of coffee--including the French roast you like so much.
We will all enjoy a cup or two of coffee at the morning staff meeting.
