I use to be that coffee bro. But quit coffee a few years ago.
It's a fun hobby if you enjoy the taste. You can get extremely nerdy with espresso, and also you can add pid control and sensors to dial in your shots. It's a fucking MONEY PIT though. Almost as bad as high end audio.

:rofl: I love coffee, and grind my own beans, but that's about as far as I go, I use a Keurig for crying out loud :mamoru2: But it pretty much comes out the same every time and it takes like a minute 2 tops of my time to brew my daily cup.

I mostly stopped drinking coffee. Will have it once in a while. Usually Tommy Lee Jones brand canned cold brew.

Holy crap, I REALLY need to go get my eyes checked and my prescription updated! Dropped another AMD CPU while installing it and bent 1 pin in the pretty much absolute middle of the array somehow and I missed it during my first and second visual check. I had to get the magnifying glass out in order to see the damn thing :rofl: It was quite the chore getting it straightened back up while trying to hold the magnifying glass at the same time as well :rofl:

Same use to drink OG monsters in college

Lost a lot of weight when I stopped drinking them wonder why......
When they first came out we were buying so many at the office that we made a deal with the convenience store we were getting them from to buy them in bulk :rofl: I was working 80+ hours a week because I was doing mine and my bosses job because he was out getting a bone marrow transplant. I was mainly getting the Blue ones though, they either had less or no sugar.

I think I drank them for about 3 or 4 months before I gave up and went back to coffee because they were making me WAAAAAAY too jittery :rofl:

I volunteered for something one time that involved training a lot of people face to face everywhere in the region, I didn't get paid anything more, and it sucked. Won't do again. Unless you're getting paid more for it, or expect advancement in some way, don't.

Edited for a little less self doxxing
