So I'm working at this little organic cafe as the assistant manager, when the cafe manager decides to talk about starting up an espresso bar with some untouched equipment sitting at another one of the stores. The cafe manager left a few weeks ago, and as the asst. I jumped in to try and take over the project, which thus far has little in the way of any organization that I'm aware of beyond the construction. So I've been researching, pricing out items, finding all of the items that we're going to need, and I just wrote a proposal to the owner asking if I can oversee the start up of this project in the store. Problem is, I don't have much other than research to go on right now, along with prior management experience. Let's see how this endeavor goes. I've contacted a local coffee company about start up consulting, marketing, and in house barista training. Now I just need to convince the owner that all of this is worth paying for. I know it is, so hopefully he'll agree. It will be nice to get back into the grind of running an espresso bar, something I enjoyed greatly several years ago.
