Gavin likes talking to customers because it allows him to be interactive and presents an opportunity to work w/ people to create a delicious drink, catered to their particular style & taste.

deep reading


Reading a bit slower and more focused can activate the same neurons in the brain that are active when “experiencing” elements in real life. Deep reading can increase empathy and analysis, helping us develop richer personal subtext, increased critical thinking and boosts neurogenesis (the growth and development of new cells & specialized nerve impulses).
