Coffe Industry Business Manufacturing and Supply Chain including Caffetteria

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, the seeds of berries from certain Coffea species. When coffee berries turn from green to bright red in color — indicating ripeness — they are picked, processed, and dried. Dried coffee seeds (referred to as “beans”) are roasted to varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor. Roasted beans are ground and then brewed with near-boiling water to produce the beverage known as coffee.

Coffee generally is a product that grows in South America, we can found different varieties of coffees and here we explaining how to contact the manufacturer and how to install a Torrefazione (Coffee Bens in Supply Chain) and a Caffetteria (Manufacturing in Supply Chain of Coffee Drinks).

Generally an efficient caffetteria business manufacturing between a 100kg to 1500kg of coffee production in 24h (about 20gr in espresso and 50gr in a brew coffee) while an efficient Torrefazione is buying and mixing about 1000 metric tons per month of coffee bens, usually mixing different varieties of coffee bens including chemical treatments for the coffee conservation and coffee digestion.

Where to get coffee?

Usually quality coffee grows in South America, coffee agronomic businesses are rudimental farmers the most safe in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia. You need to setup a logistic business to buy coffee varieties and ship it thru the water or air logistics. You can look to the search engine, but basically if you driving around the farms visiting coffee farmers you can easily order production giving them your phone number and production required.

Once you found a good price for coffee you need to mix up and test different qualities of coffee for espresso product and Brew coffee products until you have a specific recipe to target the taste and production requirements.

Once your logistic business has been configured you need an industrial robotic method of supply chain for coffee; a mixer and an assembly line for an espresso bags that you can work different bens espresso recipes, and a mixer and an assembly line for brew coffee bens recipes.

Vantages to Target Caffetteria..

Caffetteria is not a bar or a breakfast restaurant, it is a coffee drink manufacturing in supply chain targeting the distribution end to end to the consumer of water and coffees.

The best solution to profit with your coffee is to target the direct sale of coffee drinks and water bottles for example:

  1. Espresso light;
  2. Espresso hard;
  3. Espresso decaf;
  4. Cappuccino ( 1,2,3);
  5. Latte macchiato (1,2,3);
  6. White Milk or Milk apart for:
  7. Brew Coffee light;
  8. Brew Coffee hard;
  9. Brew Coffee Decaf;
  10. Natural Water and Sparkly Water;

The goal of this antique method of sale coffee is to lower the cost of coffee drinks to be in activities all day long, 24/7;

How to install a cafetteria?

We just need bar furnitures, refrigerators and a large storage; the secret of the coffee quality is the quality coffee machine and an employment following processes. There are different coffee machine, in particular Italian espresso machines and American industrial coffee machines.

We will definitely have hard time with the milk heating, I think a custom order of milk boilers for an automatic process is the goal to fast-track; staff requirements are as follow:

  1. Barista: someone preparing coffees and milk decorations;
  2. Milk-maker: someone heating milk;
  3. Barkeeper: someone preparing the bar for the coffee and releasing the coffee service;
  4. Barack: someone keeping the cup and glasses checking quality clean;
  5. Glass-washer: someone cleaning and drying glasses and cups in the dishwasher;
  6. Housekeeper: someone cleaning the site;
  7. Supervisor: someone making sure the processes are correct and replacing missing people that happens.

A counter could be not necessary in case of online digital payment webform and/or smart payment system solution, it really depend to the machine learning and IoT integration quality used for the processes.

Coffee on delivery is not really necessary, but it is a warranty coverage of a 24/7 production.

Well the team explained, is able to work up to 500-800kg of coffee production in 8 hours shifts considering the 30 minutes break.

The method of work for high quality coffee drinks and the cut of different products warrant the target, “we want people ordering coffees”, the solution to focus on the solo distribution of coffee and nothing else.

In Conclusion

The profitability of coffee drinks is really high, in this case we have a lot of energy issues, I suggest to maximize profitability a solar energy solution to trade coffee with just employment and taxes costs. As all type of businesses a rent is not suggested, because it is expansive, because a mortgage brooking activity is useful, because you can be removed by landlord.
