|The RUSSIAN COFFEEHOUSE|
Originally intended for a location in Vancouver BC on Denman Street, which proved questionable after a personal visit, then on Robson Street, the website was located at geocities.com/therussiancoffeehouse/ - but has been lost, although a record of the actual Business Plan has been kept (2000 - 2001).
This was the first real in-depth study of coffee, including consultation with wellknown coffee consultants. The first planned location (2002) was just one block from the Cruise Terminal and was named the Howe Project, being on the corner of Howe and Cordova. It was abandoned when the "9-11" disaster destroyed much of the industry in late 2003.
The original website was published at geocities.com/cafe2000vienna/ and was profusely illustrated with photographs taken in Vienna in 1998.
|The LONDON COFFEEHOUSE|
Only the hard copy of the Business Plan remains - website lost
|CAFÉ VIENNA - 2nd location|
only the hard copy of the Business Plan remains. No separate website was created as it was based on the Café Vienna project.
|CAFÉ de RICHELIEU
The location for this venture was to be within the Sandman Inn on Georgia and Cambie, but the premises were found to be too small and nowhere near the official measurements given. As a majority of the regular clientele were expected to be of Ukrainian heritage, the name used was that of a famouus Odessan. The original website was at geocities.com/cafe_de_richelieu/.
