I’m keen to put together a spreadsheet or even a few spreadsheets and tools to help Baristas with their financial literacy in a professional setting. If we can help some baristas tighten the screws or understand their product a little more, then efficiencies, salaries, and brains will all be benefiting.
I think a good first project will be a cost of goods calculator. I don’t know exactly how it will look right now, but I’m sure there’s enough people with good ideas in here that we can knock it out of the park.
I’m imagining a simple section of user inputs where the user can define things like wage, cost per kilo, wastage etc. etc. with guides and industry standards next to them for reference.
Any ideas, existing solutions, or challenges I’m not foreseeing? Let’s help each other optimise the heck out of their drinks!
