♥ / Driftaway Coffee

Big thanks to Driftaway Coffee for sponsoring my blog and RSS feed.

Driftaway Coffee is a freshly roasted coffee subscription that is personalized to your taste. They roast right here in Brooklyn in our quirky neighborhood of Red Hook, and ship all over the US.

All subscriptions start with a tasting kit of four different coffees, you try them out, enter your favorites and based on which ones you like, you will get coffees matching your taste.

Driftaway was started to “fulfill our desire to create, do work we were passionate about, as well as our need for and interest in great coffee.” It’s something we believe will resonate with SwissMiss readers.

Join 1000’s of creatives, designers, developers and coffee lovers by signing up for a Driftaway Coffee subscription. Use coupon SWISSMISS to get 75% off your first delivery (usually $16.50) (expires Apr 20th).

We hope you love it!

Flow state

I watched my coworker Emerline use Flowstate and it blew my mind. It is a writing tool designed to snowball a person’s primal focus into a serene state of creative flow. No overthinking what you wrote. No instant deleting, going back and editing. Just writing! How? You set a focus time, you start writing and when you pause, the app blurs out and makes everything you wrote disappear. The document only gets saved if you complete your timed-writing exercise. Terrifying and brilliant all at once. Try it: Flowstate.
