A crowdfunding for a bar? No kidding? Yes! Because it needs us: do you miss the real Italian bar in Lucerne like we do, as it exists in every Italian city? The bar where they serve the best (we really mean that as a superlative) coffee? Real Espressi and Cappuccini like in bella Italia? Served standing at the bar: strong, powerful and good. Then help us to buy the best coffee machine. For the best espresso ever.
We don't sell just any coffee, but blends as they are used in Italy by a small roasting company from Ticino. Since espressos require different blends of beans than for example coffee crème, we need different large, professional coffee grinders.
Stage 1: 5'000 Fr. for coffee grinders and barista accessories.
The heart of the Bar Centrale is the Slim Jim coffee machine by Kees van der Westen. Tom has already worked with many coffee machines and is sure that this machine meets all requirements.
Stage 2: 12'500 Fr., half of the machine is financed.
Stage 3: 25'000 Fr.: the whole machine is financed.
Target amount: 30'000 Fr.: the mills and the whole machine is financed
Bar Centrale this is Sezai and Tom. We both work in marketing but have always had a passion for food and gastronomy. Together we want to bring the Italian way of life to Lucerne.
I have been addicted to coffee and gastronomy for a few years now. As a columnist for various daily newspapers and magazines I am an ambassador for enjoyment and joie de vivre. As an advertiser and concept developer I stand for new ideas.
I have always had a passion for food and gastronomy and besides my work in marketing, I own Oil & Vinegar with the stores in Basel, Bern, Spreitenbach and Vevey, which sell the finest oils, vinegars and Mediterranean delicacies.
