I am now just getting back into the swing of things. I had a blast in GB for the New Years! I spent 9 days over there and was blown away by the growing coffee industry there. It is barely tapped! In the states you can throw a stone and hit a shop. I wish I could move over and be a part of their growth! There is so much money to be made!! Don't get me wrong I love the industry and am very passionate about it but lets be honest we are all here to make money. I went into a few shops and tasted the coffee and was pleasantly surprised. I did like on shop that I went to and asked where they got their coffee. The barista stuck his chest out and said proudly, "We ethically source our coffee from X, Y and Z. I tried again...no where is your coffee roasted? He looked puzzled for a moment and turned to the other barista and asked her. She proudly said, "We ethically source our coffee from X,Y and Z." I repeated it slower....they then got it and said, "awww...ROASTED!" "Not really sure just know its ethically sourced . Do not take this as I am making fun of them...I just see the potential for a great start up business...so much room for growth and educating the guests! Majority of people that drink coffee at home there use instant. They are used to a "regular" coffee yet no one serves drip coffee in their stores. Anyone know why? I understand that the price of a specialty drink is higher but drip coffee has huge profit margins...oh well enough rambling. Would love to hear others thoughts on this.
