Mark now has three clients for his coffee and a second roaster. We are a regular customer of an Auckland company for the beans. I really like the basic blend (some Robusta beans added to the basic beans). Now I have a taste I know what I like. It’s still a little oasis each day, sitting down to a latte or an espresso.
There were two weeks at the start of the year when he set up shop at the College providing coffees each morning. Having $M17 to do the merger, they still shut down the real coffee supply for 4 weeks, right wne we probably needed it a lot.\
Here is a snap of the end of College windup:
This is his original roaster, with beans before they are done:
We’ve talked strategy for the business. We are looking for clients within 400m of the roaster: like Burnside or Ilam. Tomorrow night we have the last midweek gathering of the youth/YA summer programme at our house. Coffee/Hot chocolate and cake.
