Common Grounds TV has launched! Starting in Halifax, the co-hosts prepared for filming during their cross-Canada trip from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Tofino, British Columbia. 

Born of a mutual desire to chronicle the best places to get coffee on the ultimate road trip, Nik Green and Edan Marshall took Common Grounds TV traveling through the nation’s most interesting cities, visiting the best café’s and roasters across the vast country.    With the domination of the “Green Giant” (otherwise known as Starbucks) in the coffee universe, it has become a necessity for the independents to find new and creative ways to compete with the large corporations for the consumer dollar, or in this case four dollars. This has led to Canada being home to some of the most unique cafes this side of Italy.   Common Grounds TV will take you across this great country in search of the best espresso, cappuccino, desserts, architecture and more as hosts Nik Green and Edan Marshall traverse the country.   Green and Marshall check out the funkiest and most original establishments serving coffee from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Tofino, British Columbia. Interesting cafes, roasters, bakeries and unique shops such as chocolate factories are scattered around the country and the hosts show you where to find the very best of each.   With their unique humour and coffee related challenges, the trip is never dull as the two caffeine fueled men investigate the coffee world and realize it is about more than the beverage, it’s about finding, experiencing and meeting new people through its ability to bring people together over a cup. So sit down for coffee with Common Grounds TV.   www.globalauthority.ca   nik@globalauthority.ca    edan@globalauhority.ca
