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

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. 

How Fuss Hair Studio Impresses Their Customers

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.
