Roland Tanglao has a business plan for the kind of coffee shop I’d love to be able to patronize. Among his points describing the BareBones concept, the ones I like most are:
- No WiFi, no internet no power outlets.
- No takeout, only coffee in “real” cups.
- No coffee cards, no promotions, no free coffee after buying 10.
I think Roland’s on to something here: in the future we’re going to seek out things that have fewer features not more.
