"If you want to open a coffee shop, I believe, that it is a great advantage to be guided by people who have actually done it themselves. Not many people are so ready to share there knowledge and experience. I think this book is a great guide. I also loved that it was written in a way that was easy to understand and at times I literarilly felt like the writers were talking to me directly. This book many times confirmed what I was thinking which was very encouraging for me. Thank you Andrew and Claire for sharing your knowledge in this book. I would highly recommended this book to anyone who would like to open a coffee shop 100%!"
"This is one of the most useful books I have ever read written by a couple who clearly understand the coffee shop business inside out.
I'm considering opening a cafe and this book provides a realistic view and advice on what is required to run a successful business that makes money.
The links to document templates to help with standard policies and proceedures are worth the money alone.
This will become a key reference book in the coming months."
