From seed to cup, a drip of your favorite coffee is a result of perseverance. It transfigures from a coffee cherry into a bean that is able to hush away your drowsiness. But rumor has it, not everyone can handle a long wait, the a to z steps until one can sip that bittersweet potion.

The persistent are the ones who understand, of how dear scent of coffee is, and how some have to arduously untangle every process.

 

A coffee shop has its own story as well. It is built upon a philosophy that is in the mind of the author. From the planting to the brewing, the author doesn’t want to leave it as a tale, but a real hideout where the folks can have a good time with their coffee.

Uh huh, is it a nod or a no?

The author has the story and the philosophy, but how does he make it to the west? Of course, following a compass isn’t the answer, but he has to build the coffee shop from the prologue to the epilogue.

Thus, I letter you pieces you can capture to your note, of things that you may need to know in building a coffee shop, from seed to cup.

Coffee Machine

What is the segmentation? The demography, the geography, the……

How do you do the pricing?

Vice versa, it ordains how the design will be. You need more chairs and tables to be occupied, if the pricing is low.

Identity

No one wants to wear the same outfit from the bottom to the top with others. Thus, your identity must be imprinted to the interior design, that people will remember and put you in their memoir.

“You don’t have to be unrivaled, you just need to be yourself.”

 

And the z but crucial is…

You need to hire an interior design consultant who can help you to integrate everything, and to interpret your identity to interior design, so that your coffee shop won’t be a mismatch.

With interior design consultant, it is no more a wishful thinking for you to build a state-of-art space that the target audience would love and happily come back to revisit your coffee place.
