Coffee button

Ice Coffee Emergency Button

We have an iced coffee keg from Joyride Cofee filled with Stumptown cold-brew. Everyone enjoys it so much that we run out fairly quickly. To inform our facilities team when a keg is empty, I built an "Coffee emergency button" that files a JIRA to let them know it needs attention.

It is built with a SparkCore device that is on our wifi network, and a cron job that queries it once per minute to poll the status.

And that's how we keep ourselves well caffinated and cool during the hot NYC sumer.
