Coffee sold from a hearse in Norwalk

NORWALK - One local Norwalk business owner has a unique twist on a caffeinated treat, perfect for the upcoming Halloween festivities next week.

Tom Lialios, the owner of "Deadly Grounds," provides caffeine junkies with coffee from a hearse -- the only hearse that can brew coffee at 60 mph, he claims.

His coffee, with names such as "Dark and Deadly" and "Hell's Fury," have created quite a buzz around the streets of Norwalk. Even his license plate and hood ornament blend in with his macabre theme.

Lialios says his drink is also the official coffee of Hell; Hell, Michigan, that is.

"People have been telling me to go there, so I figured I should go and check it out myself," he says. "Turns out Hell is pretty nice. It's not run by who you think."
