(n.) The attainment of perfect synchronization with the office coffee brewing cycle. This may be in phase at any point; for example, on Monday I personally made six pots of coffee during the day.

Given three pots of coffee of two varieties (but one pot marked and reserved for decaf), I wonder what the numeric representation of the system would be. I spoke with my colleague who manages that part of the break room yesterday and was told we are one of our coffee service's biggest clients. When I asked if that was we our company or we our floor, he said it was the 18th floor by itself. Altogether we go through about nine pounds a week, 2:1 regular to decaf, plus all the creamers, tea bags, and other associated flotsam.
