Hi my name is Marty Currie and I will soon be taking over operation of a used books store and coffee shop called Books and Beans <> in Southbridge, MA. The store is owned and operated by a non profit organization called The Center of Hope <>. We serve people with disabilities, and use the coffee shop as a way to train individuals to work in community based jobs. We are unhappy with many aspects of the way the shop is run and I am looking for advice on how a successful coffee shop is run. My major concern at the moment is how to improve the quality of the coffee we serve. If anyone would be willing to answer some questions I have please reply in this thread, or contact me privately at [email protected].

Thank you

Marty Currie
