The first week of business is almost under my belt. I sold a few pounds of coffee, roasted a few pounds for the store so there is some to purchase, and dropped off some samples to some wholesale prospects. I also received some samples in the mail so I can start creating my own espresso blend.
On Facebook, I asked if we should offer flavored coffee, and received a resounding YES. I will start gathering the items needed to create the flavored coffee, and once it is available, will post it on Facebook and here. Our grand opening is a week from this Saturday, and we are starting to plan for it.
Friends of mine are currently deployed to the Middle East. We are going to have a donation box at the grand opening to buy them supplies, and will send that to them within a week after the opening. Anyone that donates will be entered into a drawing for a coffee basket with 3 pounds of roasted coffee. Of course, we will be sending coffee to our troops as well.
So come out, have some coffee, help us celebrate the opening of JSA Coffee Roasters and support the troops.
