Talk to your new boss and find out what isn’t working for him right now. You will also gain insight on how he works. You don’t want to make him learn a whole new way of thinking just because it’s how you like something.

As for the coffee…..I would offer to do that if I were going to get myself a cup. I am a tea drinker so he might ask me once to get his coffee – and then he’d learn that I make horrible coffee.
