Agitprop Coffee. A study in impending failure.

 I wish there was a way to bet on the failure of a new small business. A brand new coffee shop opened nearby. I do pay extra for organic/fair trade/single origin good coffee. However I'm not going to pay to get preached at.

Agitprop coffee. 

Actual name is a synonym. Details obscured for obvious reasons.


City it's in is VERY blue.

Prices on the menu board are reasonable.


Not open late enough to get bar crowd traffic.

Limited metered parking.

There is a Dunkin Donuts a block over that's open much later and has a drive through.

There is a coffee shop that is co-located in a vape store two blocks over.

100% Vegan restaurant that serves coffee, Another hipster/vegan coffee shop, McDs, STARBUCKS all within 5min on the same road. Not to mention lots of restaurants. 


Unless it's a tax shelter they are going to be gone as soon as the owners run out of money.
