Work in the embedded systems industry.
Hi, I'm a frustrated artist whom has had to do other thing's in life to pay for the everyday things including the coffee habit. I've been a builders laborer, storeman, delivery driver, salesman, freelance illustrator, art tutor and the last fifteen years or so mainly a wardie/orderly including the previous couple of jobs on the side. Still do some creating on the side more hobby than anything to keep me sane as well as enjoying a nice coffee two to three times a day.

produce cryopreservation equipment
Used for freezing embryos, sperm, oocytes and other (small) biological material, before long term storage.
Civil design engineer here. Roads, dams, drains, sanitary systems, etc. So long as there are no moving parts or eletrickery, chances are I would enjoy designing it. Mainly involved in the project engineering side of things now, but looking to fill my spare time with some volunteer work and keep the technical skills sharp.

Coffee is required here
I studied law, worked in animal rescue for a while then ended up on MasterChef.
Software/web developer (mostly, and appropriately, Java) along with admin for some Linux boxes.
Carpenter by trade. Once my first child came along two years ago I know I needed to have a superb coffee fix at home. Once I bought the rocket Giotto home it has become an obsession. Even the little boy has to sit on the bench behind me watching the shots get poured. I've even been considering changing jobs recently and opening my own cafe. Who knows maybe sometime in the future.
Pharmacist turned web developer around 1.7 years ago.
Restaurant owner, apparently I cant get enough coffee at work so I need to have it in abundance at home as well.
Dino what's your experience of coffee in restaurants like? Mine usually involves regret, but I haven't been to that many restaurants.
I'm a horticulturist who maintains green (and breathing) walls, green facades, and green roofs.
Semi retired now working about 20 hours a week, have operated a lawnmowing and garden maintenance business for 27 years, prior to that I was a compositor/typesetter in the newspaper industry for 25 years.
Coffee has been a huge part of my life since I discovered Coffeesnobs in 2007--the rest is history.

Studio Pottery Teacher. Can waste all day critiquing the cup I'm using.......
Howdy all! I'm a full-time wedding photographer from Adelaide. In my spare time, I build a little furniture and do some bush regeneration work on our 4 acre block of scrub in the Adelaide Hills.
Iím a Registered Nurse in Newcastle NSW Australia and I love coffee!
Interesting to note the number of nurses (<7) and the limited presence of hospital workers and this thread. Considering caffeine and hospitals seem to have a very strong connection.
Architect here in Sydney. Perfect profession to drink lots of coffee and then say "lets go get more coffee and think about it"
Currently working as a LNG technician in the much debated island off the central qld coast. Previous to this was making explosives for use in the coal mining sector .Long shifts means the need for good coffee is a must . Thank you Coffee!!!!
IT executive management now with a global NGO. Got hooked on coffee after son signed me up for a barista class as a birthday present . Good coffee has become mandatory during my travels globally and so I never leave home without my aeropress, hand grinder and freshly roasted beans. Have even used it on a plane with the crew all joining in the fun

dentist...but if i could I'd drink coffee and golf all day
Medico working in Microbiology / Infectious Diseases.

Retirement is a black hole from which no information about a past life escapes, externally measurable only by its current mass and whether it still moves. Professor Hawking may have hypothesised that the retired have no hair but I do.
I am having fun. Coffee is one part of that.
Have been running a lawn and garden maintenance business for 30 years, scaled back to 20 hours a week now that I am approaching 70, roasting and drinking lots a coffee, heading interstate and overseas on a regular basis, great work/life balance at the moment--too young to retire!!
I’m in IT operations
Full time owner/operator of a wholesale/retail coffee roasting outfit. Part time pro trout fly tier.
Automation/integration (home and commercial). I need lots of coffee, because it's Saturday 21:21 on Saturday night, and I'm setting the gear I'm installing tomorrow in my bedroom, so I can program the control system.
I do, actually, love my job.
Coffee machine electrician; homme roaster; reverse osmosis technician; La Marzocco and Modbar installs, maintenance, tuning and repairs.
Alas, physics is an interest rather than an ex-profession, and without expertise. More related to engineering although law gave a whistle I ignored but which influenced some other stuff. I dreamed up the black hole analogy because, aside from ageism, people seem to have alarming difficulty imagining any useful attributes at all once you tell them you do not have a job.
Reality is a little difficult to explain. In general terms, think large scale IT-related systems design and consulting thereon, contracts and performance management, negotiation of disputes, and on the odd occasion arriving to solve wicked problems after available in-house and external experts had reached a mess. I retired well before the due year, partly so my spouse did not have all the fun and partly because, well, disputes in particular can be a bit stressful and my plan is to outlive recent male ancestors. Conventionally, that ought not be supposed too difficult.
I'm a senior project manager working in construction. Working for a Dubai-based company (family are in UAE) but I have been working on rotation in the rainforests in Rwanda on a hotel project over the past year.
While it sucks being away from home and living in planes, at least the coffee there is amazing. I have a hand grinder and V60 to keep me ticking along there.
