Can VMI cadets have coffee makers in their rooms?

No coffee for 4 years would be cruel and unusual punishment, indeed. I believe my DS and Brother Rats got a coffee maker after break out. They certainly have one their 3rd class year. There are some very good instant coffee choices these days for when you can't brew. Writing this while I enjoy a fresh cup of wonderful coffee.....
Above is correct; after breakout you can have a coffee maker. No microwave or fridge though.
I know people in my company who had a coffee maker during the Ratline.
I mostly just get coffee from Crozet though even though I have a coffee maker in my room
Don’t worry, Starbucks is served in the PX ;)

But yes, you can have one officially after the Ratline is over.
