For more than 30 years I worked in a company where there was no coffee dispenser.
I know: it sounds unbelievable, yet it is true.
My colleagues, however, organized themselves with a mocha and made coffee mid-morning and in the afternoon.
As soon as the coffee was ready they used to call me.
My contribute was for to the expenses and for the chat 🙂
So I never really witnessed situations of the kind represented by the famous sitcom Camera Café for instance.
How about you instead?
I guess anyone can tell several anecdotes, do you have any?
I think it is also possible to group characters into categories, such as the profiteers … that is, those who never have any coin, or do we want to call them by a slightly more slang appellation?
Perhaps a form of suspended coffee should be created for distributors as well.
Speaking of inventing … do you know who is the author of the first device to distribute automatically?
His dispenser however was for holy water, and thinking about it … I get a big smile 😉 I would very much need it …
Joking aside, the idea came because Heron noticed a waste of water outside the temple.
Through Heron’s mechanism, a coin struck a lever that dispensed a given amount of water for each person.
What to say. I love brilliant minds.
What kind of dispenser would you like?
So, it’s ok if we take this week’s coffee at the dispenser?
The coffee coming out of dispensers is often of minor quality and overpriced. So I prefer to make my own coffee, if possible.
You’re right Olivia, absolutely there can be no comparison between vending machine coffee and home made one.
Loving the way this post speaks to the way that coffee brings people together in a shared moment of understanding and solidarity! Truly being able to make it when needed is a blessing.
True Layla: I also think that sharing and solidarity are a blessing.
And in my small way I try to do my best to be useful to others in this sense.
