Empty Tray

At work, I usually have my daily doze of caffeine in the afternoon with the co-workers.

Felt like drinking Cappuccino today instead of the regular Espresso.
However, when I pressed the button, the machine didn’t respond.
Instead, the LCD panel said “Empty Tray”.

We were wondering what was empty!

The coffee beans? No, there were plenty of beans in there.
The milk? Nope, the container was filled with milk.

So, I tried again!

“Empty Tray” again.

We were trying to figure out what the problem was, when kvaneesh, who was patiently waiting for his cup of tea, got it!

The “Empty Tray” was not a status message.
It was a instruction to empty the excess coffee powder that had gotten deposited in the tray.

I guess, I need to learn the coffee machine language now 😀
