    Coffee Roasting - Cafe owners/Business mentors HELP!!!

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello fellow coffee lovers.

    First of all I would like to introduce myself. I am a devoted coffee lover and have spent numerous hours/days/weeks on this site in the background reading and researching about ways to improve my technique/blend and learn about the industry in general.

    For my everyday job I work for a geotechnical company in financial operations and have been in the industry for over 10 years.
    However the itch of starting a roasting business has been on my mind for a long time but never had the courage to do so. But truth be told I don’t want to look back another 10 years from now and ask myself “what if”.

    To put things into perspective I have family members who has been in the industry for 15years in the operations and quality control. Their contacts has also enabled me to gain access to materials required to operate a business and an experienced roaster.

    Now blending the two worlds together (my financial and family members roasting – operational) I hope to start my own business in coffee roasting.
    I am reaching out to the community for a Business mentors or any Café owners who is willing to provide some business insights which will allow me to make some sound financial decisions. As well as understand the industry and how to improve love for coffee from end to end consumers.

    I know this is a very sensitive business operational topic, hence feel free to contact me via personal message and leave your contact details for me to contact back.

    I could not thank the community enough for all the valuable resources on this site. I truly hope to connect with someone from the community or any contacts you may have to help me achieve this vision to own and operate a business that truly adds value to the consumers.

    Best of luck in your endeavours AKA, I hope you get the assistance you need, IMO there is plenty of room for genuine, new and passionate operators, however, there are also many toes to be avoided :-)
