So you’ve had a fantastic Sunday morning bike ride or hike, on a gorgeous nature trail with good friends.
What could be better now than to drop in to the local coffee house or roasting company for a fresh baked muffin or bagel and the best cup of steaming joe imaginable – smooth, full bodied, and aromatic?
Perhaps the only thing better would be to OWN the local coffee house!
*If you’ve been dreaming of owning your very own specialty coffee roasting company or coffee house…
*Or maybe a cute little breakfast place with an emphasis on the best breakfast and best cup of coffee in town…
*Or upscale dining with great coffee being an absolute necessity…
*Or how about a dandy little drive thru coffee house?
Then here is what our Start Up Coffee Shops page has to offer:
1.) A fantastic resource to guide you step by step towards your very own start up coffee shop by someone who has been there and done it.
If being a coffee house owner sounds like the career of your dreams, the FabJob Guide to Become a Coffee House Owner is for you!
In this e-book you will discover how you can get started and succeed in the café business.
Guide author Tom Hennessy is a 25 year veteran of the business. He opened his first restaurant when he was 27 and the coffee house he started has been operating successfully for over 12 years.
Tom has written for industry publications and spoken at conventions across the country, and focuses on how to set up a successful business without spending a fortune.
In researching ways to improve our business practices here at Lakota Coffee Company I discovered this priceless e-book.

4.) One of the very best sources available for green coffee.
Here at Lakota Coffee Company we have been working successfully with one of the best importers in the business.
Here is a quote from their website:
“We are dedicated to searching the world for absolutely the best coffees available for our customers, in terms of both quality and price. We service the largest specialty roaster to the smallest gourmet roaster/retailers. Our quest for coffee is a love affair, and we hope to share our knowledge about beans, origins, and roasts with you."
These folks travel to literally hundreds of estates in dozens of regions. (Someone has to!) They “cup” numerous coffees and choose their favorites.
They purchase the best of the best, from the top 2% of strictly Arabica coffees in the world and then pass this goodness on to Roasting Companies that concern themselves with the utmost in quality.
If roasting your own coffee for your coffee house is your dream, then we can offer invaluable assistance.
