The Roasting Space has been adopted by Mo Java Cafe in Lincoln, Nebraska. We are all very excited for this collaborative effort which has been offered by the owner of one of the most established coffee roasting companies in Nebraska. The owner of Mo Java, Paul, and myself, Jon, the original organizer of the Roasting Space, see this venture as a way to build a stronger coffee community supporting the growth of independent nano-micro roasters through providing equipment and retail space for production This is mostly a collaboration of ideas, since there is no infusion of capital investment, equipment, or labor, but rather a shift in retail location and opportunities for the roasters that are involved.
I am selling most of the equipment that was used at the Roasting Space, and Mo Java will generate the costs and revenues which come from this collaboration. If you need a roaster, give me a call. I also have: espresso machines, grinders, 3 part sink, under counter cooler, grab and go pastry case, coffee grinders, scales, cases of cold and hot paper cups, etc. you name it!!
Starting soon, you will be able to walk into Mo Java Cafe and see several locally roasted brands of coffee on the shelves for sale, including: Mosaic Coffee by Jon Ferguson, Handmade Coffee by Kara Ficke, and several more up and coming roasters! This is a new venture and a growing opportunity for those passionate folks and spirited entrepreneurs who want to build and create something fresh and exciting for you!
