Tales from the Barista’s steam-wand!


Hello Readers!

After months of planning and time-juggling, we finally opened our new coffee house in Painswick late last week. We’ve researched beans, blends, cakes and pastries until the proverbial ‘pips squeaked’, but the hours spent watching and learning from the Barista have really paid off!

It’s great to be on the ‘other’ side of the counter (despite the fact I’ve got less space and more gadgets than a Ryanair stewardess), and as part of the development of  www.mobilementor.me, I’m putting together a few notes on the do’s and don’ts of setting up a new small business and taking control of ‘self’ in order to hit the ground running.

We’re less than 72 hours in, but it feels like we’ve been working for 72 years to get this far. I hope you’ll find my musings useful, enlightening or even pithy! I’ll be pulling together some notes over the next few weeks, but as ever it’d be interesting to hear tales from you if you’re setting up a new business, you’re new behind a ‘counter’ (of any type) or are a barista with achy feet – just like me!

Watch this space for more ‘from the nozzle’ of life in this small but wonderful Cotswold town.
