Same again (hacking the beast-machine)

bialetti - one more

There's no way for me to directly control a lot of what I do. Essentially, I've given up responsibility for my actions as and when they occur, and instead as much as possible focus on the set and setting ahead of time. Fortunately [but mostly not] I'm good at getting habits, so I can set up workarounds and little hacks and see what they produce.

I used to drink way too much coffee, and I couldn't stop myself. I started grinding my own beans and using a little stove top moka pot so that the time / effort required for each cup would act as a restraint. It works very well - down to three cups a day - exploiting my own laziness / intertia to get things done.
