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 isn’t really a flex (though it literally would have been a weird one if it was), it has something to do with this post’s topic.

Coffee before a meal. Coffee after a meal. (SEO, baby)

YouTube (this isn’t a piece about YouTube). I have shifted through several genres of YouTube videos throughout the pandemic but the most consistent have been commentary channels. One of these guys, Leon Lush, had a nice quote in one of his recent videos related to Qanon. He said “The internet is a fickle bitch… no matter what you want to believe is true, you will be able to find a version of that online to latch on to.” So, should you drink coffee before or after a meal? Let’s talk about a version for each.

Coffee is mostly associated as a breakfast thing, but it’s normal to drink it around lunch and dinner
