It’s early afternoon, right after lunch, a time when people in civilized nations are taking siestas. You, however, are at your desk, your head snapping forward as you do your very best to stay awake. But instead of breaking your nose on the space bar, what if a happiness agent delivered you a cup of hot coffee, prepared just the way you like it?
