My Journey Toward Car Literacy

I Married A Car Guy: My Journey Toward Car Literacy

Hi, I'm Debbie Nol, and I married a car guy. My 14 years of working at Arie Nol Auto Center has been an incredible journey, building amazing relationships with customers and learning so much from our experienced technicians.

Now I'm launching a blog to share what I've learned about cars and some of my most memorable customer stories. Hopefully you will find my blog both helpful and entertaining!

Coffee and Local Business

Coffee and Local Business

I always thought all coffee was the same. It didn’t really matter where it came from or how it was roasted. Then I met Craig.

Several years ago, we began purchasing our coffee from Grand Rapids Coffee Roasters. They were a new business and very enthusiastic about their product. Craig Patterson explained the process of roasting the beans and why it was better coffee. We figured our customers would love a good cup of coffee.

Grand Rapids small business community is amazing. You have a guy with a passion for good coffee and he has built a business that embodies the focus on buying local. All of us that work here at Arie Nol Auto Center, as well as our customers, appreciate the fruits (coffee beans are actually the pit in a coffee cherry) of Craig’s labor.

We love being able to support a small, local business that employs local people. We also love drinking the coffee. It is an instant cup of happiness.

Do you want to try out a great cup of coffee on a Saturday morning? Enjoy the ‘Saturday Experience’ and learn a little about how coffee is roasted, try the samples available and find your favorite new cup of joe. Enjoy the neat old building the Grand Rapids Coffee Roasters is housed in. Take the stairs and get some cardio in at the same time!

But don’t tell Craig if you add cream and sugar or flavored creamer. He is a coffee purist.

If you have questions about car repairs or maintenance, stop in to our shop, grab a cup of coffee, pull a stool up to the counter and ask away! Just like Craig, we’d love to share our enthusiasm and knowledge about cars!
