About this project

Thank you for enduring our home made video...We truly appreciate any contribution you can make...anything helps!!! 

Here is a breakdown of our costs (so far):

500lbs of coffee = $4,000

800oz of loose leaf tea = $1,200

hot & cold cups/lids = $7,000

plus milk, sugar, ice

Check our website for our types of coffee and to see our shirts/sweatshirts if you want us to send you some stuff in exchange.

LOVE,

Jon, Jenny, Marley

Risks and challenges

We are trying to make this dream/opportunity come true without going into debt to get there. We are sure that selling coffee at the Games will be profitable...but we are also sure that we will have to put a lot of money into it as an investment...a lot of money that we just don't fully have.

We are shooting to sell 3,000 cups per day. A risk....would be buying 3,000 cups per day worth of coffee, cups, milks, ice, etc and then only selling 500 cups per day. That would be really bad.

But for some reason, we are VERY confident about selling out each day...because we are VERY confident in our product and we think that people will be drawn to what we stand for...being that we use exclusively organic/fair-trade coffee, organic milk & compostable products. And that we are friendly and make people feel good !!!!!!!!!! And being the only coffee vendor helps too.
