Are Your Goals Big Enough?
The first gourmet coffee store that I had experienced was in 1971: “Coffee, Tea or Me?” located on Ventura Boulevard in Tarzana California. Until then I had never had an espresso or cappuccino and only saw coffee that came out of a can. The woman who was the store’s proprietor roasted her own beans and would educate her customers about coffee while she had their attention as they were sipping their beverages. The store was wonderfully arraigned selling glassware and all things associated with brewing coffee and tea. I still remember the first variety of coffee that I had sampled: New Guiana. Many years later the first time I walked into a Starbucks store it reminded me about “Coffee, Tea or Me?”.
Word had traveled about the store, people would just walk in and take pictures without the owner’s consent so as the copy her store’s layout. As I recall, the proprietor’s husband was an engineer for an aerospace company and when he was transferred out of California she closed the business. She had the game changing business, one of the first of its kind and didn’t follow through on growing her business- but Starbucks did. Are your goals big enough?
