Hey, I’m not asking for tips, but you are welcome to tip.

I have seen others use Patreon to provide exclusive content or access to special Discords, and while that’s their right, that style doesn’t seem to fit me.

I only setup Patreon in an obnoxious way, but I don’t like the idea of putting content behind a paywall. Obviously, I wrote a book, and that is behind a paywall, so I should clarify.

I don’t aim to build a second income or change my primary income to be from coffee data science. My interest comes down to:

  1. A desire to share my journey with anyone it would benefit
  2. The cathartic nature of writing as it is a calming influence for me.

Even my book is drawn from material that is already available online. I’ve decided to publish my YouTube videos on Instagram rather than just links because it is simpler.

I don’t need money to fund my coffee adventures, so I will continue on this way. However, if you enjoy tipping, feel free. If you want to buy me a coffee, or a bag of coffee or whatever, there’s the option. I enjoy my profession and its impact on the world.

I hope you enjoy my content, and I hope something I do can help you make better espresso or laugh.
