I'm Dave, a Jira admin who loves coffee ☕

Hi! I'm Dave, and I'm a Jira admin[1]. 👋

What do you do?

Glad you asked! I help teams on Community and off Community with their project, work, and knowledge management challenges. As a recovering project manager, I sport project management habits that I enjoy sharing with others. Every playground needs rules so no one gets hurt. Likewise, work teams need working agreements to ensure the free flow of information, labor, and beer. Always beer. 🍻

Your whole life isn't Atlassian products, is it?

Nope! Aside from some of Atlassian's products, I love coffee. One of my favorite cafes to work from[2] is Republique of Coffee in Paris. Nowadays, I pretend I'm working there by staring at their Instagram, @republiqueofcoffee and sighing a lot.

Lately I've been downing a lot of 787 Coffee's rum espresso. Yes, rum espresso! It's a treat; you can taste notes of rum, and there's no alcohol in it. Go to their NYC East Village location and tell them I sent you! (I guarantee they'll be confused.)

p.s. I also love smartphones. I rock keyboarded devices - a rare breed - but I've used everything under the sun. (I miss being a blue bubble sometimes.) Portable electronic devices let me carry a ton of novels in my pocket, and even read them sometimes. Back when I had a long subway commute, this was key. 📱

Awesome post ! As an aficionado of rum and addict of coffee I’ll be looking in to those shots :)

Maybe I’ll email them to see if they do a home kit and send it half around the world. 

I’m sure they will if I mention you sent me ;)

@Dirk Ronsmans - updated this article with 787's link! Since they have operations in the US and Puerto Rico, they'll probably ship to you. Or at least tell you how to make their wonderful rum espresso.

Dirk Ronsmans Community Leader Mar 15, 2021

Seems they ship the rum infused beans! 
if the shipping isn’t too extreme I’m gonna be very happy!

I read "rum" and was hoping there will be some alcohol in the coffee :D

@Martin Bayer _MoroSystems_ s_r_o__ - when I learned about the rum espresso, I was sad to find out there was no alcohol. So is everyone I tell in-person. 😅

@Martin Bayer _MoroSystems_ s_r_o__ - I love hot toddies, so seeing your recipe gives me something to look forward to this weekend! Or maybe one of these evenings?

Heya @Dave Liao 

Oh to be in Paris! As a fellow coffee freak - I have to argue that baristas from Oz and Italy in fact, beats everyone else hands down.

@Justine Violante _Appfire_ - Justine! Welcome to Community!!

  • I've yet to visit Italy, but I did like the few Italian cafes I tried in different parts of the world.
  • And thanks to you, I'm going to get a flat white in the arvo - flat whites were my introduction to Australian coffee culture, by the way! 🐨

Hey @Dave Liao

Tagging in folks to chime in:

  • @michael.kimathi since he used to run a BlackBerry group in his country, and
  • @Darryl Lee because he's had as many keyboarded phones as myself! 🏆
Darryl Lee Community Leader Mar 16, 2021

Ahhh, you sucked me in. So what phone is that, @Dave Liao? A Blackberry?

Dave Liao Community Leader Mar 16, 2021

@Darryl Lee - it's a BlackBerry KEYone (well, BlackBerry Mobile/TCL). Keyboard wasn't the best, but it looked good.

@Dave Liao BlackBerry Bold and BB Passport was the last BlackBerry built with love and originality of what BlackBerry should be. “When you go BB there is no going back”. The keyboard worked and the security was guaranteed.

@Michael Kimathi _AC Nairobi_ Kenya_ - the BlackBerry Bold 9700 was probably one of my favorite BlackBerrys...
