Most memorable coffee Dawn ever had? Touring the Lavazza factory in Turin, Italy. (She even got to eat in the employee cafeteria!)

Keep it clean (talking about your coffee machine)

Keep it clean (talking about your coffee machine)

Keep your coffee tasting great!

  • Use good quality, fresh roasted beans (check out our selection here - we'll mail them to you whenever you need)
  • clean your coffee maker after every use - just wash out the coffee pot and brew basket with soap and water
  • do a deep clean by running vinegar and water through once in a while. How often should you do a deep clean? At least once a year. Every couple months if you're using it daily. Monthly if you're using it for several pots a day.

Read on for a little more detail on how to deep clean your coffee machine...

How Fuss Hair Studio Impresses Their Customers

“Can I get you a coffee or tea?” 

Like many salons, customers at Fuss Hair Studio in Toronto’s Leslieville are offered a drink when they arrive at the salon. By improving the quality of their coffee, Fuss has found that their fussy customers have noticed. 

Of course, people come to Fuss for the great cuts and colour treatments.  And a big part of why they return is because of the entire customer experience. It’s the chic environment, amazing scalp massage, friendly people, cool music - and the delicious Fuss Studio blend coffee from Sparkplug Coffee.
