Publisher's Summary

Driving around the city in any metropolitan areas we all see trendy coffee shops everywhere and not all of them are Starbucks. Do you ever wonder why there are so many new boutique coffee shops popping up everywhere? Well, according to National Coffee Association (www.ncausa.org), it is not a hoax, but the new trend and this is the reality. The coffee industry and the coffee shop business have boomed in recent years, especially with regards to specialty coffees.

Here is what CCAUSA has gathered from their research:

  • Out of home coffee consumption has reached a new high of 46% in 2017
  • 59% of coffee consumed daily is gourmet coffee
  • In the US more than 65% of the adult population drinks coffee every day: that means roughly about 70 million daily coffee drinkers
  • 66% of people in the US buy their daily coffee outside their home
  • Gross profit margin for most coffee shops is around 85%
  • In the US the coffee shop business is a 10 billion dollar industry

Let these numbers sink in for a minute. Let’s agree that all these numbers are saying one thing - that is the coffee industry has been on the rise for last few years, and it will continue to grow.

Laughable

While the book is well written, it is outdated and incorrect in many aspects. Don't waste your time and please research any author you're receiving financial information from.

didn't add anything to what I already knew

It was short simply thats nice... I didn't really learn anything I already wasn't aware of, but might help the most novice of novices. the performance didn't do it any favors either, in my opinion.

great insight into running a coffee shop business

I'm based in the UK so not everything that was written in this book applies to me, but nonetheless I did find it a really useful insight into some of the considerations when starting a coffee shop. I'd highly recommend listening to this audio as a good place to begin to learn about how to run a coffee shop

nice overview

provides a nice overview of entering the industry. if you're a UK listener then some stuff won't be relevant but it's generally full of good practices. I would have liked deeper details but that probably isn't within the scope of this book.

recommended.
