    Cappuccino machine

    Yeah - I'm not at your level yet. Mainly 'cause the wife has put a moratorium on any more coffee paraphernalia (3x moka pots, 2x bodums, 3x aeropress, 2x baratza encore grinders). All split between my office and home. My daily driver is the aeropress+baratza. Hard to beat it. When I travel I...

    Your Afternoon Routine

    Walk home at 5. Cook, feed kids, wife, myself by 6. Then clean kitchen, wash kids, read to kids, done by 7. High 5 wife if kids asleep by 7:30. Read till 8:15 or until eyes start burning. Pass out by 8:30. Usually wake up around 1am and dose in bed until 4:30. Then gym, work and repeat. FML.
