2.) About a year ago I developed a coffee shop business plan that is amazing. It is an idea that I have never seen done in any coffee shop I have ever been in; which is both exciting and extremely scary!
3.) I am not a barista. I love coffee and I know a good amount about the coffee process but I am not going to be pretentious about where I am at on this journey. I need to learn more before I launch. This camp helps me grow!
4.) As a coffee shop owner I can provide jobs. With this training I will be able to train others in the art of being a coffee barista. It is also my desire to build genuine, mutually beneficial, sustainable relationships with coffee farmers all over the world, making the value and impact of one little cup globalized.
5.) Community. There are pockets of Columbus that do not have a coffee shop. Shocking, isn't it? There is a ton of room for specialty coffee to grow in Columbus! Everybody, I believe, should have a coffee shop close enough to walk to and enjoy a cup of coffee with a friend. This is my mission.
Thank you in advance for all your support!
