My name is Michael James Oetting, and I am a life-long coffee enthusiast and an expert. I’m in the process of starting a cafe and it’s been quite the experience. Along the way, I’ve had a few missteps and had to rethink some things. The bottom line is that there are no absolutes in life except death and taxes, and this is a collection my wisdom which I’ve discovered during my rags to riches journey. I hope you find some of my suggestions helpful.
