A gouple of days ago my coffeemachine had to go in behalf of more space for fruits and vegetables. Best decision.

@MrVocalplay oh man, you have toots i can talk about :ablobcatattention:
I ditched my coffemaker years ago. I have a temp adjustable electric kettle, an old school ceramic melitta filter holder and reuseable cotton filter. Since the kettle has multiple uses i can :awesome:

@chran oh wow. I would love to learn about minimalism 😄
I ditched coffee nearly completely couple of month ago, so the decision wasn’t really hard. And when I want one I can brew it by hand.

@MrVocalplay i tried ditching coffee, but a cup from time to time is nice :mastoblush: . Here is my setup (the kettle is complete stainless steel on the inside because hot plastic doesn't sound good to me :blobcatdrool: ):

@chran really nice.. and everything reusable, love it.
I have filters which I don’t use anymore and my frenchpress got reused for tea :D

@MrVocalplay Frenchpress tea... I learn new things everyday. Doesn't the tea get bitter (green tea for example) or do you pour the whole frenchpress when the tea is done?

@chran it doesn’t get bitter.. but if so I’m fine with it :D At the moment I often drink peach tea.. so it’s getting more sweet at best 😂

@MrVocalplay Very good decision. Coffee has a be footprint in terms of #landuse. Im trying to cut down my consumption, too. (More or less successfully.)

@LindaG yes the reduction of footprint ist a big part. For me I noticed I‘m feeling way better since I ditched it..

It’s nice that you’re trying.. but don’t rush it. Let your body some time to adjust.

@MrVocalplay How much cups did you consume during the day, if I might ask? - I´m afraid of the headaches and the tiredness that will come when going cold turkey. Also, about the social aspect. As a #vegan, I don´t eat cake in most festive situations. (Not always in the mood to bring my own...) Additionally not drinking coffe, but sitting there with a glass of water looks really cringey, I think.

@LindaG Let's say it was way too much :D Yea I can relate to the fears. While I made a cold switch for both veganism and coffee consumtion (but not on the same time) I wouldn't recccoment it. It also isn't necessary to make a cold switch in my opinion. When becoming vegan I switched my snacks and so on so have mostly always something with me. But here generally people are really open. But sometimes its hard to be prepared not gonna lie 😅
