This is an encouraging development for independent coffee retailers at the expense of the big chains.Among other coffee shop ideas that you can consider is to focus on Espresso. Research has shown that high quality espresso is a massive factor in getting customers to come back. So if you really are a coffee lover who wants high quality or exotic beverages to be your niche, then you should definitely consider making espresso sales a big part of your plan.
