Today, many cafes are for the purpose of making money,I have a friend, her coffee shop seems to deliberately do not want to make money, very low-key business, hidden in the city, need to cross the street to find it,one way valve tells you interesting stories.
Why should the cafe so subtle and not in the flow of people and more commercial streets? Why environment and service are good cafes, generally equipped with pastry and other small dessert, but here is not? For her, this is just a small room and want to concentrate on playing coffee place. She didn't want to try to attract guests on the road, but hope to meet with some familiar guests like friends, relatively little secretive.
A let me very impressed and very interesting story she told me with her guests. When a guest come to her cafe will asked her if she had a Geisha coffee, because this coffee is expensive, so every time she would say no to the goods. But many times, each time she asked the guests will feel guilty at a time, feel shy. At last she purchase back, when guests ask, she was very pleased with the guests said "this was a" guest, very glad to hear that 'is really excellent. Just give me two packs of yega coffee'.
Whenever I think of this story will feel very funny. In fact, very envious of this friend, can develop their hobbies into a career, but also in the work encounter all kinds of different people and different stories.
One way valve believes that drinking coffee should be like tasting wine, first smell the aroma, and then try a small bite, that you can taste the essence of it.
