Here are all the ingredients you need: Americano. No sugar. Egg. Apple. Water. Repeat.

Now that the project I’m working on is out (we relaunched QN5 Music, an independent hip-hop record label), I think it’s a good time to start curbing my americano addiction. I’m trying to wean myself down to one per day for now. I’ll let you know when I fail.
