Best Narrator in the business

I don't know what I enjoyed more. The helpful information or the narrator. She didn't have that whistle thing that some narrators do and she did make her voice extremely deep either. She kept the book upbeat and held my attention. A must listen ofor anyone wanting to open their own coffee shop.

Am I ready?

NO, is the resounding answer that this lovely author and narrator team helped me figure out. The narrator is even-toned and a blessing to my sensitive ears. She also speaks in a neutral way that isn't boring but also doesn't make me feel like I am making the worst decision of my life. I have pages and pages of a to-do list because of this book and am so glad I found it.

Practical Outline of information

This is a great book to help you decide whether or not you are ready to open your own coffee shop. This author has thought of everything for you and explained the bullet points of each idea. There are things I didn't think about that are so simple. For example, what are you going to serve? well, coffee obviously. But I hadn't even thought of flavor profiles, caffeinated and decaffeinated, which brands, or where to source from. This book doesn't miss a thing. You will feel prepared and informed after listening to this book.

Insightful!

This was phenomenal. Being in corporate most my life and always being in and out of coffee shops with business; I’ve always been curious about the adventure of owning my own coffee shop. This book makes all of that so much more clear in easy to understand chapters. I highly recommend this to anybody interested in owning a grand coffee shop or just a casual java lover. 5/5!
