Caffeine. Who first thought of roasting then grinding then infusing then drinking the black stuff that's essential for life? And then, joy, having coffee bars where people can meet and be clever. For, unlike alcohol, I think caffeine actually does make you sharper, not only think you're smart. Our local is Attibassi. Many supporters are customers I've only got to know in there. Although this is a virtual Shed and crowd funding focuses on having an online presence, I do like the fact that real relationships, some over many years, have proved most valuable both in terms of immediate financial support and sharing. Add to this mix the real excitement of seeing new names in the list of supporters and this is what keeps me going in this final straight. That, and coffee.
