Bus Stop People: Hakon

Hakon is the Turkish barister, coffee roaster and grinder, and owner of Sovereign Grounds coffee shop on 48th and Chicago Ave. in Minneapolis. He is a very sweet and successful barister who greets the neighborhood customers with always a sincere smile and concern. (By the way, his store has two rooms: one for the little tykes accompanied by their mothers, who come as a morning outing. The kids all learn to take their shoes off at the door and then they can play with all the toys and other kids to their hearts’ content while Mama chats with the other mothers and gets her morning coffee potion. The other room is for the neighbors just stopping for a cuppa before they catch the bus downtown to work.)
