Hi everyone,

I just joined the forum but have been educating myself on what it takes to open up a coffee business via your postings. I am considering opening up a coffee business - not sure in what form (cart or shop). It looks like there are quite a few coffee business owners here. So I'd like to tap into your knowledge and experience database to see what I should do in terms of homework to guide myself down this path.

Help?? :wink:

My short list of first steps:
1) Join the Specialty Coffee Association www.scaa.org
2) Peruse Coffeegeek.com too
3) Go to the SCAA conference in April in Seattle and take lots of classes
4) Get a part time job at the BEST cafe within 60 miles of your house. Learn everything you can there both good and bad.
5) Find a great coffe roaster partner and get as much knowledge as you can from them. Good ones want you to succeed as much as they want to succeed.
