Topic: I have a coffee shop... (3 msgs / 65 lines)
1) From: Barbara Wilson
Hi Everyone,
I just finished reading all of the "if I had a coffee shop" posts. I'd
been saving them as I have been a little busy for the last 3 days. A
coffee shop has fallen in my lap and I've been running it. One of our
friends who owns a shop here in Mindo, Ecuador, is going to the states for
2.5 months and we offered to run her shop for her while she is gone. After
that we plan to open our own, so this will give us some experience and
help us figure out what we are getting into. It is fully stocked and up
and running but I would like to add many of the things that you
suggested..for example a roaster. I am contemplating having one built for
me. Your thoughts on music, etc. are helpful at this point I've been
trying to decide on that type of thing. I also hadn't thought about the no
smoking policy yet but like the idea very much. Here most of the business
is tourism so we are gearing ourselves up for a fast and furious
weekend..we hope.

I wish a coffee shop would fall into my lap...

Coming from a smoker... either smoke free or a totally sealed off smoking room.  Don't let the whole thing be smoking, it's horrible.
I'd say smoke free, BUT if there is not a smoking shop near you, then there will be a  huge market for it, and you should definitely look into it.
