It’s Official…I Exist

No, this is not some existential confession. It means I finally got approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission. I’m finally a company!

Now, for the next steps.

I still have a few more pieces of paper work that I have to do before I am 100% official, but it’s easy stuff. To make it completely official, I have to publish my filing. That isn’t hard. I just need to send the document and pay $20. Easy peasy.

The next step after that will be to get my food handlers license. I haven’t had to do that in like 10 years, so I’m going to have to study on up on the cooking temperature of Turkey (because every coffee professional should know this).

Once I have my food handlers license, I will have to start researching on how to become registered as a “home baker.” That is how I will be approved to sell direct to consumers. That is the last piece I need to be legal.

So, my goal this year is not particularly ambitious. I want to sell a cup of coffee to someone. That’s it. There’s just a lot of steps to get to that one little goal. I’m almost there though. Once I’m legal, I will have to start determining if I should buy coffee or paper products. I’m currently thinking I will start purchasing paper products because I don’t have to worry about their quality going down over the next 6 months in a hot garage. But…I will be buying a new coffee and it will take me a while to dial into the roast.

Decisions. Decisions.

2017 Goals

Sitting here trying to think of something to write about, I realize I am kind of in limbo. I haven't had a lot of new coffee experiences because of the craziness of the holidays and I don't have any grand plans for the future....wait a second...that's terrible. How can a business not have plans for the future? I need some goals.

Pour Over Coffee Station

I posted on Twitter that I was going to try my hand at roasting again over the long weekend but focused on building my pour over station instead. It wasn't hard, but did end up costing me a little more than anticipated. Here is what it took to make it:

My Official Hashtag

In preparation for my first deliveries, I thought it would be good to release my official Hashtag. That way, when everyone raves about how awesome my coffee is and feels that insatiable need to share its awesomeness with the world, they will have that road paved for them. (That is me envisioning success...and crossing my fingers...and praying daily...but also envisioning.)


That's it folks. So when you have your first cup of coffee and want to share it with the world, please include this with all of your posts. The reason behind this tag line is not really a fun airy topic, but it is a huge driver for me.

I came up with this because...
