Don't forget to order enough coffee filters. You may find yourself stealing them from your local library or hospital.

Don't get engaged in a discussion about your wonderful Nicaraguan coffee while filling the tiny bar sink on your counter.

Don't forget to add chocolate to your nice customer's mocha. It's not a mocha anymore.

Despite a couple trip ups(see above), this has been a great 3 days. The response to our little shop has been awesome. People are really amazed when they see what we have done with this little dress shop which has stood empty for 5 years. I am so excited to be bringing something like this to town. My daughter came and worked with me today, so my heart was bursting with pride. Of course when I told her she couldn't sit on the counter or wear her ipod she was a little less enthusiastic, but I think I have a future barista in my family! Catch the Buzz!!

Great news, and great advice. No chocolate=No mocha. ;-) Glad things are well, and before you know it, you'll be in the rhythm, you won't even think about any of that stuff! Kudos!
