"A mathematician is a machine for turning coffee into theorems." Alfred Renyi about Paul Erdos 

I am a mathematician and my Erdos number is 2

I have been a member of the Department of Mathematics & Statistics at the University of Reading for 40 years, and have worked there for the best part of 36 years

I am currently Professor of Mathematics and Mathematics Education there

I also trained and subsequently qualified as a secondary school mathematics teacher

... and I only drink Nespresso coffee
