The Church Coffee House Experts
The Daily Java has often been called the Church Cafe Experts and for good reason. We understand the difference between a regular cafe and a church cafe, which we have dubbed "Quick Hit Cafes". As we joke, Starbucks has never seen a line with 150 or more in it, EVERY Sunday. Precise layout, design, and the flow of equipment is essential to the success of the cafe. Every extra step adds a second, which adds minutes to the people in the back of line. The best equipment often is not the most expensive equipment, but the most needed to produce a quality drink in a quick manner. Menu and product selections can derail your success before it even starts. Even pricing and cups can greatly effect the overall success of your cafe as we have found in our surveys with over a hundred church cafes.
We work with churches and cafes all across the country, making sure their vision is reached. Weather we are speaking at WFX, GACHP, or one of the many regional conventions, or being published in NACBD, Church Executive, Church Structural, we are willing to share our knowledge to make sure your church cafe succeeds.
Our Basic installation package includes the basic installation of most of our equipment and more importantly, the troubleshooting and programming of the equipment to make sure it is ready to operate. Often, we also provide our training programs on the same trip as our installation program. We offer both an operations training and a volunteer’s training.
Our Operation’s Training goes over the key items to run a successful café, including the cafes vision, daily operations, volunteer positions, how to build a team, recipes and more.
Our Volunteer’s training program takes your volunteer through each piece of equipment where they learn to make drinks, learn the products and understand the vision of the café. By the end of the training, they will be able to make drinks better than their local Starbucks.
We set up all our churches on a project management tool to make sure they have all the information they need in one place and so we can all work together with the general contractor in one place with all the data for new cafe designs and installations. Once we near the end of the project, we are able to provide another one of our key resources; our training and basic installation programs.
