I was thinking trying to get more pour over bars in coffee shops in my area, and maybe making some money along the way.
I'll have to agree somewhat on the negative side. I don't think you'd be totally unsuccessful if you were persistent, but my guess would be that not enough owners would be open to the idea to make it worth your while. Some people can handle the salesman role, I'm not really into it. If you build custom made brew bars though, have you thought of figuring out how to market to people who are already looking for a brew bar? Maybe online? I mean those stainless steel ones are crazy expensive... and ugly. If you offer a custom copper one at a competitive price, seems like there could be a market for it.
I would be interested if my roaster or machine/equipment supplier would introduce me to any new concept/brew method that was interesting, produce great coffee and could generate some more revenue but I would be very sceptic if a random guy would walk in and do the same.
I think most interested quality coffeeshop owners could pull this off themselves if they haven't done it already, if they don't know what pourover is, it indicates that they are not that interested in coffee and they will probably never be successful running the operations and the up-selling of the slightly more expensive drinks
Thank you everyone for your comments, my roaster introduced the pour over concept to us and we are now researching the idea for our (small rural) area. Can anyone give us a lead on where to best purchase the products necessary for a pour over station and personal pour over equipment, etc.
From what I've found commercial pour-over trays are hideously expensive, seriously like $300+ dollars. If I were to do anything but ceramic single cup (that rests on the coffee cup) I'd totally have some fun and make my own. Or find someone to do it cheap, its zero technology.. just takes a handy person.Thank you everyone for your comments, my roaster introduced the pour over concept to us and we are now researching the idea for our (small rural) area.
