Everybody wants to save the environment. Unfortunately nobody ever told us that saving the environment might involve personal sacrifice. For example, one of the thing currently killing the environment is our coffee makers. From Forbes:
In a recent analysis prepared for the California Energy Commission Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Program, Ecos Consulting found that the typical coffee makers in a California office building consumes nearly twice as much energy as a normally used desktop computer annually.
As someone who's spent roughly $4000 at Dunkin Donuts this year alone, I think the only solution is to come up with a more efficient way to brew coffee. Because if you think cutting back on coffee is the answer, you're sadly mistaken. Coffee isn't just an essential part of a balanced breakfast. It's doubling the productivity of American workplaces. You know how during the NCAA Tournament nobody works and America loses $1 billion in productivity per day? That would be every day if coffee didn't exist. In fact, I haven't had a coffee in over an hour, so I'm not even going to try to come up with a clever ending for this post. Anything said or written by someone who hasn't had coffee is just gibberish anyway. Kim Kardashian's tweets? No coffee involved. Courtney Love? NEVER drank coffee. All of Karl Marx's theories? He came up with those pre-coffee. Meanwhile Einstein pounded lattes like it was his job. You see? Coffee = productivity. No coffee = communism.
