Disloyalty cards, a concept conceived by World Barista Champion Gwilym Davies in 2009, have popped up in cities like Boston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Amsterdam. Washington, DC joins the mix this week thanks to the efforts of coffee pros Dawn Shanks and Christy Pelton. While a traditional loyalty card honors repeat customers, disloyalty cards reward patrons for visiting multiple small businesses.
