So what's the story with coffee then? Well as I have a home office I have to make my own coffee, as there is no fancy coffee machines around I can use. So for years I have been living off regular filtered, instant or stempel -coffee.
I made a promise to myself that I would buy a coffee machine when I get my royalty cheque. Well the cheque has arrived a month ago.
There is a lot of different types and brands of coffee machines. So I spend a while reading the web and watching you tube reviews of the machines. I also got advice from Johan Edstrom, who has a machine.
As I do not want to be my own barrista I was looking for a full automatic machine. At first I got my eyes on a machine from Gaggia, but recently spotted a new machine from Jura. I wanted a small machine as the daily use would be at my home office for a single person; our dog don't dring coffee, and my wife only drinks coffee in the weekends. The latest Jura ENA 9 Micro seemed like a great machine. It's small and compact, full automatic, and has a nosel to take in milk directly from the carton (or from a thermal bottle). So basically it's a one push button machine making coffee, expresso, cappuccino or latte.
So last wednesday I put in the order, and this morning the machine arrived at my doorstep.

If I have to guess how many hours I have spend working on the book, then 1300 hours would be a good guess. So that's 1$ per hour. And that's before tax.
Just wanted to share this with the readers, so you know how I spend my royalties.
Thank you, the readers, for making my coffee a pleasure to drink from this day forward.
