My wife is starting a cafe, Caffe Corsa. She just started doing it, I am now heavily involved as well.

Please support the Caffe in her venture. Very excited to get this family business going.

Everything is in motion, the plan set and site is on the way.

I now have a local business supporting with a fantastic roaster. I am pretty excited about it. SW FL needs a good venue like this!

This is a great idea, they had a motorcycle coffee shop here in Massachusetts where they use to sell riding gear and of course coffee. i beleive they also did some motorcycle service not sure. They were around for many years. im sure our new england weather had something to do with them shutting down. Anyways good luck!

It is in Sarasota, FL. We are looking pretty good right now. The fund raising is needed for a lot of the construction, but she is crazy driven and I know it will all come together.

an update, because I am in Afghanitsan, helping remotely here... so the first campaign didn't get a lot (any) support, Here is a link to the new fund raising, hopefully people on here support LOCAL small business in getting us going! PLEASE support and donate, even if a small donation will greatly help us in the long haul. As everyone knows, the first year is the hardest!!

we will make it without the donations. It will be a LOT easier for construction if we have ppl donate. It is EXTREMELY hard to get a business going in the U.S.

Have you contacted the SBA? They provide funding for just such a thing.
I did, the problem is all SBA does is guarantee a loan for vets. I can get a loan, no problem. It's paying back the loan, while not working, and working full time to make it happen. It's a catch 22. Basically people that start business like this already have a ton of money.
