Getting Energized with Coffee

Coffee Maker Overview

Coffee is one of the drinks that is present in our everyday lives. It keeps us going on a day when we feel sluggish and haven’t had a good night’s sleep and it also wakes us up in the morning. Since coffee has a large impact on the daily lives of many people, it makes sense to include it in The Sims 4.
