My third coffee tool is more expensive than the Aeropress and the Hario combined, but worth the expense. It is a Porlex hand grinder for coffee beans. It makes me work for my coffee :-)

Usually, but not always, good tools are expensive. My two top picks for making great coffee are both cheap. The Aeropress is great for hot coffee, and the Hario Mizudashi is fantastic for cold brew. In “bang for the buck” terms they are both unbeatable.

Not having to fake dates to have tasks appear in the OmniFocus forecast view has removed a lot of friction for me.

Yesterday I got a bew cold brew pot, so today I had a nice, refreshing cold coffee with breakfast. Tonight I will have some with tonic to compare with Espresso Tonic.

It is official. Yesterday I signed the contract with my new employer, and I will start working for them in July.

Given the small footprint of the stand, it is easy to put it on some sort of shelf. In this picture, I put it on a wine box as a proof of concept :-). It might be more of an issue if you are out and about a lot, where carrying a shelf is not exactly practical. @justinhudgins

Visiting The Lisbon Book Fair

We went to visit the Lisbon book fair today. At lunchtime there was not a lot of people, so it was easy to walk around. As soon as lunch was over it filled up as if someone had opened the floodgates. A very nice day out with the family, and we got plenty of reading material for the summer.

The Microsoft Foldable keyboard is a really nice accessory for my iOS devices. Small and portable, and OK to type on once I got used to the “two halves”-layout.

I doubt that I would have discovered Espresso and Tonic on Twitter. This could quickly become my favorite summer drink.

Getting a new rucksack for travelling

I am thinking of getting a Goruck GR2. I am in love with their rucksacks, and since 2011 the GR1 has been my daily “go to work” ruck, and I also use it for occasional travelling. Now I will be travelling a bit more, and for trips of 1+ weeks, the GR1 is just a wee bit too small. It is an expensive piece of gear, but I know first hand that their gear is of top quality, comfortable to carry, easy to pack and durable. A little bird told me that around 4 July there will be a sale, so I will be holding my horses until then.
