MBSR 2017 Recap

Team WILD brings nature to the MBSR

Here is a recap of his experiences written by my honeybee, Joe - Rider #54 - sent out to the people who sponsored his ride and helped him raise over $600 of the $10,000 in donations for Big Brothers Big Sisters of London. 

Instead of riding the route this year, I ran two mandatory checkpoints and had so much fun seeing all of the riders, in all their fun costumes, along the rally route. Already planning for 2019!

Now in Season: Mama Congo

Mama Congo

you'll love this mama

Your chance to try coffee from the Congo

Drinking our medium roasted Mama Congo makes me think of black cherry, dark chocolate and sweet dried plums. With a rich, full body and smoothness, this spectacular coffee is very different from a typical East African bean.

Darryl's coffee secret? "Just off the boil" is a term used in beer brewing but it also applies here. When you hear that ding or click, don't reach. Pause for a moment...

Hari Balaraman is one of Sparkplug Coffee's first customers and he lives close to Sparkplug coffee HQ in Toronto so his coffee is delivered on foot instead of via Canada Post. He invited me to stop in to sample a cup of kopi luwak (aka civet coffee or cat poop coffee) that he'd purchased in his travels. I took the opportunity to quiz him about his coffee habits and other passions.
