Time to start my morning ritual at the office, a hot cup of coffee (watered down double espresso), with a single tea spoon of sugar. One of the things I can’t live without. Ever since my first job as a creative, coffee has been part of my work life (I rarely drink coffee at home during the weekend). I even put my affinity of coffee somewhere in my resumé, and I guess it could be what landed me the job. My last boss was a coffee junkie, too, :). But before he departed from the company he took the espresso machine from the office (it was his to begin with). It was an Italian espresso machine, a Gaggia™, so I could understand it. Then, before we become coffee deprived, my office bought a Krups™, which is not Italian, but to my surprise, it makes better espresso. You can see on the second pic, how creamy the coffee is.

- The final product, ready to be enjoyed.
- Just a whiff of the coffee smell, and somehow for that brief moment, I forget whatever burden I have. It’s one of the little things in my life that can bring so much joy. To other people it could be exotic food (mango oh mango), a pint of Häagen-Dazs, an unfiltered cigarette, holding hands, snow fall on christmas morning, and many many more. It may seem too melodramatic, but as Jason Mraz say, ‘I love a little lift cause I’m an optimistic, In an altruistic way’ (from his song ‘Try try try’.)
