October in Coffee

I was recently inspired by Alyssa Fowers visualization of her fall semester coffee consumption. I tracked my own coffee-drinking data for a month to create this plot!

It was fun to see where I drank abnormal amounts of coffee, or coffee at abnormal times – like the office hours I hold on Mondays at 7pm or during my trip to DC towards the end of the month. I was also surprised by how much the time of my first coffee varied – I definitely expected to see a stronger “6am coffee” pattern.

I created this plot with ggplot2, Illustrator, and a Gilmore Girls reference for good measure. What would a coffee viz be without Lorelai, after all?

Code for the plot is on my Github. Here’s to sleeping more in November!
