My coffee kiosk at Melbourne Uni used to do 75kg per week across 5 days trading and that was with split shots !

Crikey... how many staff ran the kiosk??

 7 and sometimes 8 over lunch so that we could all take breaks it had outdoor seating for 60 plus the there's lecture halls adjacent had a combined seating capacity in excess of 1500 students so if they all went in at once or out at once it was chaos there were often queues six deep for coffee !

Plus I had an SMS your coffee service that stipulated that your coffee would be ready in less than four minutes from.the time of ordering or your money back!

We did between 1000 to 1200 coffees per day during semester and between 300 to 500 coffees per day outside of the semester timetable!

It was crazy busy times I owned it for 7 years and sold it in 2009

Finished my arts degree at Melbourne Uni and got offered honors in English literature but I was just glad to finish so I passed on that still it does have a nice ring to it, no? Dr Pat?

I'm sure you've cured a lot of sleep-deprived folks so that must count!

True that - I dabble with my Atomic stove top occasionally, which is probably as close as i get to Greek coffee with its thick syrupy textures and lovely sweet profile

I would love an Atomic but have never deigned to pay the huge price for one!!
