    Opening a Coffee shop and need some help...

    New to the sight though I have skimmed it a lot. My borther and I are in the planning stages of our coffee shop and we had a few questions...

    1) Which machine to buy? It is going to be a low-mid volume coffee shop and we were looking at the Conti twin Star 2. Is this a good machine or is there a better machine for the same price or cheaper?

    2) Which brand of grinder should I go with? Experiences?

    3) Who are some good roasters? I have looked into Phoenix and Lexington. Has anyone had any experience and who are some other quality roasters?

    4) What should I use for a house blend?

    5) Monin or Torani?

    I think that is all for now, please let me know so we can continue withour business plan.

    You may want to read more of the past articles on this site before focusing so narrowly on the questions posed in your message; use the 'search' command for terms like "startup" or "new" or other keywords that may otherwise relate to starting a business as a good guide to sort through the massive amount of data that you will find here.

    Those questions are going to change after you have done a little more research.

    Good luck with the new business,
