This week on Your DNTO we're sharing tales from coffee lovers, grumpy baristas and the dangers of over-caffeination.
Coffee and true love - what a perfect duo! At least Winnipeg's Curtis and Karla Fazackerley think so. Their romance started brewing over a double-double at Tim Horton's... and progressed from there.
You know the type - usually young, hip, and buried in their laptops, while sipping a string of lattes and "working"... But is the coffee shop actually the the best place to focus? DNTO intern Acey Rowe thinks so. She's enlisted the expertise of experts to pinpoint exactly why coffee shops are such beacons of creativity.
A few years back, Sam Mullins
was hopping on a plane to fly home after a raucous New Year's Eve in Calgary. So to wake himself up before the flight, he consumed what he calls a "problematic" amount of coffee. On an empty stomach. While hungover. And sleep deprived. Yikes.
Many of us have places we like to pick up our morning cup of joe - but have you ever wondered what your barista thinks of you? James Lourenco explains what happened when he was faced with too many picky coffee-deprived customers.
If you were travelling through western Canada this summer, you might have seen him: a young man trying to hand out free coffee from his jury-rigged mobile coffee trailer. Chris Tellez
is a man on a mission - to bring people together, one cup at a time.
