Favorite Purchase:

My favorite purchase I've made is my Baratza Encore coffee grinder. I bought it in 2018 and even though I've bought newer and shinier pieces since then, every day I am still reminded of the convenience that it adds to my life (no more hand grinding!). The sleek design is a nice addition to my coffee counter, and the conical burrs offer a precise grind and versatility for all of the brewing methods that I have. Every time I walk by it, even four years later, it brings a smile to my face because it's an investment that has aged so well and has become an integral part of my morning ritual.


Jack has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Fordham University.
