    Brilliant idea, helping small roasters grows with you. However, we don’t know if they can sustain if you need a big volume when you’re shop grow fast. You still need back up, thus feasibility study is needed.

    I appreciate the advice guys, I've been looking into both small and large roasters and I'm still trying to figure out logistics and all that good stuff. We'll see what happens!!

    Hello shawarma, If you are looking for great quality coffee to roast, we are bringing our own specialty estate coffee from our fincas (farms) in Colombia, green beans that have been analyzed and scored by a Q Grader taster licensed by the SCAA, you will definitely provide an excellent and fresh product to your customers once you get your coffee shop running. Let me know if you would like more information and good luck with your plans!

    my favorite local coffee shop uses multiple roasters. it keeps things flexible for them, and as a consumer you can go one step beyond coffee selection to roaster selection when you get a cup of their coffee. what do you all think of that?

Anyways, I have been doing some research on opening a coffee shop.
    I have conducted a survey of my target market in the area (with positive results!), worked out most of the costs, valued land and nearby businesses, viewed various industry reports and reviewed projections of future foot traffic and local attractions around. What I realized recently is that while I have been spending time trying to build the perfect atmosphere and come up with ways to draw attention and gain repeat customers, I completely neglected the quality of coffee that I want to offer to my customers (basically, I fell into a Starbucks model). So now, I am holding off on my research and possibly pushing back the date I expected to open this dream shop of mine.

    I need to find the perfect coffee to match my plan and I don't know where to start. If anyone has any ideas, I'm here to listen.

    Thanks
    We can supply great coffee. Google "Delima Coffee" or check my bio here on Coffee Forums.
