Caffeine for the Sleepless

#shareyourkape #caffeineforthesleepless #complexcoffee

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Financial Management and have been fortunate enough to find jobs where I was actually able to use that degree. The bulk of my professional career has been working as an analyst for a bank and an insurance company, and my coffee consumption, scrutiny, and tolerance has increased during this time.

This is a rant

I had a recent revelation. We have an uncle (well, he’s my mom’s cousin) who lives with us. He helps us out in the house and I pay him a wage on top of what he earns being employed by the barangay. I confronted him about going out drinking with people not living with us (we’ve also talked about this several times during 2020) even when there were recent confirmed Covid-19 cases inside our village. One of the reasons he gave why he thought it was not reckless (what he did) was that they were drinking gin – because he was told that gin kills the coronavirus. What was my revelation? My wife and I live with someone who actually believed that.

A Colombian-Israeli startup named Demetria is reported to have created an artificial intelligence data platform that supposedly can determine the quality of beans. We’ve seen that viral video of a robot making a latte, complete with latte art, but this takes it to another level – this is automating something only experienced professionals with impeccable senses are able (and licensed) to do.

I was on TV and it was not, in any way, about coffee – and I said “more power”

I have on TV three times (that I know of): I got interviewed for a news show when the LRT 2 was just newly opened (I was still a student then, yeah I’m old); I got focused as part of the crowd watching an NCAA game for hamming it up to the cameras; and I was on Tulfo.
