Ambrosia Nera

Yes, that's right.
Next to vino, espresso is the greatest beverage in the world. Why? you may ask. Well, do I really need to explain? What other drink is made with a machine as beautiful as this (see below)? With such color, aroma, perfect for dunking biscotti!
I am currently looking into the coffee business. The trend's end is nowhere in sight, and much money is to be generated from this "black gold, Tuscan tea" (yeah, you heard that, don't steal it!). I want to stay away from franchises because I wouldn't have freedom, especially having to close on Sundays. And besides, I want my espresso bar to be more European in style than the current franchises offer. Any thoughts or helpful hints on this business venture?
