It’s Official…I Exist

No, this is not some existential confession. It means I finally got approved by the Arizona Corporation Commission. I’m finally a company!

Now, for the next steps.

I still have a few more pieces of paper work that I have to do before I am 100% official, but it’s easy stuff. To make it completely official, I have to publish my filing. That isn’t hard. I just need to send the document and pay $20. Easy peasy.

The next step after that will be to get my food handlers license. I haven’t had to do that in like 10 years, so I’m going to have to study on up on the cooking temperature of Turkey (because every coffee professional should know this).

Once I have my food handlers license, I will have to start researching on how to become registered as a “home baker.” That is how I will be approved to sell direct to consumers. That is the last piece I need to be legal.

So, my goal this year is not particularly ambitious. I want to sell a cup of coffee to someone. That’s it. There’s just a lot of steps to get to that one little goal. I’m almost there though. Once I’m legal, I will have to start determining if I should buy coffee or paper products. I’m currently thinking I will start purchasing paper products because I don’t have to worry about their quality going down over the next 6 months in a hot garage. But…I will be buying a new coffee and it will take me a while to dial into the roast.

Decisions. Decisions.

Barista Capsule

I was cruising through my back log of Coffee News emails and spotted this article that caught my eye: The Barista Capsule. I had to know what it was. I have been working on coffee cart plans for a while but could never really figure it out. It was always to big or too heavy, or we couldn’t figure out how to power everything. I realize I was most likely making it far too complicated, but these guys looked like they figured it out.


I've officially decided to start the process of re-branding. What does that mean? Well, to me...that means I'm kind of starting over.

2018 Goals

Its been a little over a month since I have posted a blog. I know I don't have a rabid audience, but still, I want to be consistent. This is where I work out most of my business. I will say that I have one pretty good excuse for not posting...I had a baby. My second girl arrived on 11/8. I have worked on coffee stuff, but just haven't had enough time or brain capacity to post.

With the end of the year approaching fast, I figure I should start working on what I want to accomplish in 2018.
