About

From passion to dream to reality - Help me get to stage one! For a year, I, along with my business coach, worked on turning my dream in to reality. I walked in his office with a vision, and a business plan, that spelled out how and when I wanted to open Havana Coffee Lounge. He was impressed by how prepared I was and how detailed my plan was. 

I have served in the military, worked for some awesome people, managed companies and teams, assisted others in getting their business/dreams off the ground and I have run my own successful PR Company and Event Planning Company. Now it is time for me to take a leap of faith and open my own coffee and pastry company. But first I must build my brand and the plan is to do it in stages.

Stage One is Roasting, Bagging and Selling my own coffee blends online. Your donation will allow me to purchase a Drum Coffee Roaster, Green Coffee Beans from Fair Trade Companies, and the design and bulk order of Havana Coffee Lounge coffee bags. We will use marketing tools such as email, social media platforms and SEO. We will make appearances at conferences and events to showcase the product and bring more awareness to the brand. This will not only drive traffic to the website but will also drive up sales.

My business coach has guided me to this point - needing more investments and capital in order to open the doors of HCL. I have done the research and I am ready to start stage one, which will lead to the next stages and eventually opening the doors of Havana Coffee Lounge.

Risks and challenges

The coffee roaster requires assembly once delivered. Challenges would be damaged or missing parts which would delay the start of the roasting entity.
