How did the coffee stall at the weekend go? Sorry if it's been discussed elsewhere but didn't notice a thread about it?

 

I was also anticipating a thread in its own right when the time comes.

If you hear nothing you know it's probably been sufficiently disastrous to be banished from memory and never talked about again...

That's not going to happen; some apprehension is understandable balanced with positive self talk and a forum group hug.

As long as my equipment works it should go OK but i'm visualising worst case scenarios for a bit of a reality check....i'm seeing people spitting their flat whites out appauled they taste of strawberry milkshake instead of 'coffee'

Probably worth considering something a little more...'middle of the road' taste wise whilst trying to build up a customer base, rather than going straight in with something fancy like strawberry milkshake flavoured coffee and scaring the punters off! [emoji33][emoji12]

Nah. Where's the fun in that? If it goes down like a lead balloon i'll choose a more coffee coffee for next time round but i want to bring something different to the table.

Ain't that the truth for many things in life ;-)

And if that fails you know you can rely on us to rip the pish out of you mercilessly!

I'd go with a more conservative strategy of getting punters in first, let the word of mouth spread 'then' introduce something different. If you have next to no punters from the start because they don't like what you're serving, could become an uphill struggle. Bad word spreads like wild fire! [emoji32]

If i was opening a shop i'd have a coffee with more traditional tasting notes as the house bean and something more out there as a guest, but with a stall with minimal overheads i'm taking the risky route.

Farmer's markets in Glasgow

 

Nice one :good:

 

The Fracino Classic I bought for the very same idea is still sitting in it's packaging, so good luck to you.

 

Looking forward to hearing how it went.

Yes I managed a similar number of outings too...
