The author, Colin Harmon, built 3fe from a one-man coffee cart in a nightclub lobby to the internationally renowned business it is today and was the host of the 2018 Irish AeroPress Championship in Dublin (arguably the highlight of his career).
Like Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Don’t Eat Before Reading This’ before it, Colin’s ‘What I Know About Running Coffee Shops’ is a lengthy-titled must-read for anyone with even the most fleeting interest in coffee, cafes, hospitality, or small business.
