#Coffee (lookin for ideas)
    #4407834 - 07/15/05 03:25 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Okay, so we might have found funding for a venture the hubby (automan) and I have been thinking about for a while. We want to start an internet cafe. We live in a town with 7 sizeable universities/colleges so there's a lot of business to be had.

We were thinking of calling it #coffee. We're gonna have an internal IRC server so you can message people at other tables (hence the name #coffee). Base internet access will be free for those ordering coffee, and for a fee we can provide password protected HD space so you can use us like an office. We're also gonna provide graphic design/printing services.

Anyone have any input on good ideas for the place? We're looking for suggestions from techies on the ease-of-use of our systems and also features you'd like to see.

I'd also love to hear some menu suggestions. We're thinking coffee and espresso drinks (of course) and an assortment of pastries and snackables, maybe sammiches. I'd like to keep the size of our kitchen to a minimum so I don't want to serve anything too complicated.

I'd also like to hear what people have to say about other kinds of beverages like teas and such. Recipes would rock!

I know you guys are gonna give me some great stuff to think about. I only wish our shop could be filled with shroomerites exclusively.  :heart:

I'd be careful about selling HD space to strangers; you won't know what they're putting on your disks

Poundcoffee... perhaps you can somehow make some coffee fetish porno...

Anyway, for real, a few suggestions:

1) Serve vietnamese iced coffee! It's the shit! Everyone who tries it loves it... look here:
http://www.vaneats.com/features/vietnamese.iced.coffee

Those little mini french press sorta things are cheap and easy to find... restaurant supply places should have them.

2) Consider offering hookahs - especially since colleges are nearby - college students love hookahs. Just make sure you don't skimp on the hookahs. I don't know of any especially good websites to get them from because the last time I looked, they were all crap. Need to make sure they have a good seal and hit smooth. I don't know if you need any special permits to offer hookahs.

3) Perhaps offer snacks or sandwiches that are easy enough to make so you don't need to employ a cook. Stuff like hummus and baba ganouj... you can make sandwiches that you grill on a panini grill... my girlfriend and a few of my friends work at a place in NYC called "The Grilled Cheese" - they offer tasty variations on grilled cheese (and use a panini grill instead of a skillet) using good cheese, vegetables, and bread... Easy to do and not much maintenance, but that might be getting in over your head.

4) Don't overdo it with the interior design - I always see places go under because they spend too much on interior design (which ends up looking like trendy crap half the time anyway)... You can make it nice without spending huge sums of cash.

Good luck!

i was thinking of doing encryption so that just the client knows what is on his rented drive space. if he loses his key, tough. also, when someone rents space, they sign a doc where they take responsability for what they store on our servers. just like when someone signs up for online space anywhere.
