    Please help- Need advice on Start-Up costs...

    I am opening a coffee shop later this year. I know this is really an open question with lots of variables. However, what do you think the average cost of equipment averages in a new shop. Just equipment, grinders, espresso makers, refridge, sinks....25K? could this cover it or am I looking significantly more. I want good quality stuff, not the best, but good.
    Thanks for you response and if you simply want to shout out a number without any description, that is fine as well. I will take all advice.
    Thanks and Cheers

    I have not done this in a while, but nobody else has offered so I will try.
    May be someone will save if I miss to much!
    This is getting great deals on some of this
    under counter frig $1500
    2 Good used Bean grinder 800
    Air pot brewer 650
    Air pots and rack with spares 400
    Sink 3 compartment small 850
    Espresso Machine 2 group semi new 5000 Could be much more or less.
    Espresso Grinders 1100
    3 kilo roaster top quality 8500

    Then shelfs, bins, check out, ice maker,back room ref, dishwasher, coffee silos Espresso util. suplpies, twice as much money as you though and a way to live very cheap on love and Coffee!

    You question might have just been the equipment.
    so I'll stop the bull.

    Good luck!
