It’s the most underrated skill ever. Something that I consider highly desirable, yet so hard to attain!
Don’t get me wrong, I love Linux. It’s the perfect environment for development. The problem is having to deal with hardware support on bleeding-edge hardware. When Apple decides to release a MacBook 13” with 32GB of RAM and a decent GPU, without leaving you bankrupt, I might reconsider it, but for now, I feel like it’s not worth it. I’ve got tired.

Before moving to the US, I’ve passed all my coffee gear to a very dear friend. After some research, I’ve settled on:
coffee gear Kalita Wave is my new dripper - While I still love my Hario V60, the Kalita is way more forgiving and yields me better extraction overall. Bonavita Stovetop Kettle helps me to do a slow but steady stream - I kinda regret not getting an electric kettle, but I’m happy with it Porlex Stainless Steel Grinder for getting a decent grind without going bankrupt with a bigger electric ceramic conical burr grinder.
