The Pact Coffee team is made up of a wide range of characters - from coffee-lovers to tea-drinkers, tidy-desked organised types and messy ‘creative’ types. Wanna see how they’re getting on with working from home? Of course you do!
Top tips: Bring some sort of excitement to your day by sitting or standing at different angles - right now I may be staring at a blank wall but I know that in another hour, I get to face out the window.
Biggest challenge: I have suddenly become very caring of our slightly sickly houseplants and so must resist the urge to attend to them throughout the day.
Coffee habits: Our team have been having a video call each morning where one of us has brewed a coffee live - there is something quite meditative about it. I brew around 11am and for me it involves hand grinding coffee and a V60 or an Aeropress so it can turn into a proper break from work which is definitely important!
Top tips: don’t leave the TV on, listen to music instead!
Biggest challenge: definitely trying not to drink too much coffee.
Coffee habits: I brew using a Hario V60, grinding my beans fresh using a Hario Mini Slim Grinder. I’m trying to maintain my office routine of one cup at 9:00 and another at 11:00. Never after midday!
Top tips: wear clothes at least one step up from pyjamas - still stretchy, of course, but something you could plausibly wear outside without shame. And tune into the radio to feel connected - we’ve been listening to Radio 2 non-stop, and it’s like Ken Bruce is our friendly live-in uncle.
Biggest challenge: not taking twice-hourly strolls to the fridge.
Coffee habits: Shamefully, I’m more of a tea-drinker - but I keep my coffee cred up by brewing a V60 or two a day for my partner.
