The book every coffee shop owner MUST READ

I love everything about this book. I love the way he writes I love all the great information he gives I love how it's just point blank easy-to-understand just the important stuff and it gives excellent insight into details that you wouldn't think of just starting up a coffee shop. Anyone and everyone who is even considering starting to Coffee Shop should read this book.

Really great read

I'm looking to open a shop soon so a lot of the information was really relevant. However, even if I wasn't opening a shop, this would make a great read. Lots of interesting anecdotes apply not only to operating a small business, but give insight into us, as customers, and people as well.

Colin is a natural writer and presents all the information in a very readable and conversational style. Couldn't recommend more.
