Whole Bean Sales to Begin with Dia de Los Muertos

It has been a long time coming, but I have finally decided to launch my whole bean sales!

I posted recently that I made the leap and purchased my first full bag of coffee. It was expensive and has had me worried. Starting a business is scary. For one, I worried that no one would like my coffee and I would be stuck with 150lbs of green coffee...granted I'd drink it eventually, but still...that's a lot of coffee. Secondly, coffee is my craft. If no one likes it, then that says I'm not good enough. That's no reason to throw in the towel, but still that fear of rejection lingers in my brain. I have come to believe that fear is what keeps us all from doing great things.

Well, I'm choosing to not be afraid anymore. Coffee is what I want to do. The dream for my life is to have a coffee shop that can support my family. I would love for my daughter to grow up and work there. Coffee shops are great training grounds for work and life. So no more wasting time worrying about what other people think. Time to go.

And what better time to launch it then Dia de los Muertos.

It won't be easy to get the word out...sound like I'm going to get in trouble for advertising it at my day job (underground coffee sales sounds so...rebellious, HA!). I'm gonna hit Facebook and Twitter and see if can start to build the friends and family circle and hopefully word of mouth will take off.

I will see how it goes and see what we can make happen.

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...
