Gotta get the essentials right. No question about it. But if we’re talking about the joy of buying stuff, really nailing the right toothpaste is akin to popping some bubble wrap: satisfying as hell, but fleeting. Finding what is potentially the best coffee in the world, then buying a specific kit to mimic the technique of the best barista in America, and monitoring the temperatures of five separate pours? That’s the wingsuit-flying of consumerism. Every once in a while, you need a taste of that life. – Chris Wright
