Six years!
It's been a fantastic ride, and now we are ready to step it up a notch. A big notch!

Espresso Bueno is expanding! We want to be bigger! We are moving to a location with more space for seating for our awesome events: Comedy Night, Worst Song Ever, Extempo and Trivia. With our increased capacity we can add Live Music to the mix.

We want to make more delicious eats! More food to accommodate the demands of our growing downtown - Breakfast Tacos anyone? Light lunch fare? Sunday brunch? Our new home will have the capability to adapt to the increase in restaurant equipment needed to make it happen. Our new space needs some attention. Plumbing, electrical, carpentry and the equipment itself!

We are relocating our cafe to a spot just down the street, which doesn't seem like a big deal, however, it's huge! Not only are we picking up and moving, we are expanding our capacity and menu. In order to make this transition from small us to Big us, as seamless as possible - meaning not closing for any noticeable amount of time - we are utilizing Kickstarter as a way for our community to participate.

OUR GOALS:
1) Pick up Espresso Bueno as it is and move it to a larger location

2) Procure furniture to expand our seating for both eats and shows

3) Purchase new kitchen equipment (stove, steam table, fridge, sandwich prep station) to expand our menu to add a varied selection of food items

4) Obtain permits and licenses so we can offer live music and social events

If we exceed our goals, the funds will go toward the four mini goals listed above. Beyond that, we will take our coffee preparation to the next level. Much of our current equipment is exceeding it's full life. We have our eye on a new grinder that will produce our espresso shots with more efficiency and less waste, taking our grinding time from 20 seconds to 3!

Moving is loads of work!

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter operates on an all or nothing funding model. We have set a modest level as our goal, enough to fix up our new space, add enough equipment to start a modest breakfast menu and open our doors. If we totally missed the mark and we don't meet our goal, we still have the ability to open in our new space with the same awesome espresso and coffee beverages that you've come to expect from us.
