Going back to work after a long break is the worst. It’s like you’re in another world. You’ve forgotten what it’s like to get up in the morning, and your alarm is a foreign sound. And you probably haven’t put real clothes on in what feels like two years. But now, you need all the back-to-work coffee accessories you can get your hands on to get you through your first day—and week—back in the office.
