    Coffee shop names

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    I have a dream! To one day own my own shop... again. The first store was an unmitigated disaster that left me emotionally, physically and mentally destroyed. And that wasn't even the worst of it. I'm still in debt from it eight years later.

    But hey, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? Right?



    Anyway, it's unlikely to ever happen but it's always nice to dream. I have considered both pizza shops and coffee shops in the last few years and even did some costings and business plans with another person. And since I've decided to learn all I can about brewing and roasting coffee, I've started to daydream about coffee shop names. I figured it might be a fun exercise for people to discuss their favourite coffee shop names, or come up with some of their own or whatever.

    Currently my favourite is "The Puck Stop". Unfortunately the enthusiasm of youthful vagrants would more than likely turn that into something... erm... inappropriate So that one's probably not very viable in reality.

    How about your favourites?

    Yeah, my favourite, "puck me dead" would probably suffer the same fate a "puck stop".

    How about letting people pour their own shot and calling it "espresso yourself". Too much of a stretch?

    Given another thread currently running... "The Puck Slops Here!"

    How about "Has Beans"? "Daily Grind?" "The Immaculate Puck" "The God Shot"

    This could be fun... "D

    Well, if you're moving to Florida, you've got to consider "Convex Tampa" or even "Pullman Tampa" if you're in the right part of town.....or even "Tampa Tamper"

    Might just keep it simple... I like "Buckshot" only problem is then people might get pissy when I'm charging three bucks each.

    Sorry- but I don't like it at all. Tacky and not witty at all IMHO.

    I can't imagine that it would gain approval as a business name anyway.

    They have the mobile car ?Coffee shops, I think this would be a great idea, then you could make a fleet of them, do coffe tours, or run a regular bus time table. I would catch that bus!
