I am continuing a bit on the business sides of thing. I want more people that are in the process of starting a Roastery to ask more questions. I don't have all the answers and there are plenty of people that can give you better answers then I can. That being said my goal for the next few months is to try to help other people that wants to start a Roastery as much as I can. The easiest way to contact me is via email. It might take me some time but I will answer.
When starting up you need to do two things (1) manage your cost. Are you paying the "right" price for those bags? Are you shipping coffee in an affordable way? Where do you get your green coffee? There is a million questions when starting up and there is just as many people out there that actually have some answers for you. All you need to do sometimes is just to ask for it.
