How many pounds of beans a day does a small town coffee shop use?
I'm hoping to open a coffee shop in my town and was curious on how many pounds of coffee beans some other small town shops use in a day because i'm thinking about roasting my own but unsure what to expect and if i would be able to keep up. Thank you.

Well I am not in a small town but my stand is slow going because of change of ownership and rebuilding a good rep....soo I would say I might be comparable. I go through a 5lb bag a day! I hope this helps!

Five pounds of beans would make roughly fifteen gallons of drip brew. That would be about 160 12 oz cups of joe. (However, I'm sure csc is making espressos as well and they use more coffee/cup than a drip maker.)

I'm wondering how much of the brewed coffee that's made from the five pounds of beans gets tossed out during the day?
Some places dump the old, stale coffee and brew a new batch every hour or so.

I am one of the very small town with population of less then 10,000 people.
We sell around 300 cups a day and we use around 10-12 pounds of coffee per day.
My espresso sale is much higher....
I hope this helps...
