It’s been (I guess?) sort of a joke for a while that people give me coffee powder as a birthday present. Usually, this is accompanied by an apology, or a casual “this is just a symbolic stand-in for now”.

Well, what can I say: there is one more week until my salary comes in, money is tight, and I’ve used up the last coffee powder I bought. And… Coffee is expensive!

Can there be any better gift for a grad student than an extra package of coffee for exactly these situations?
