Starting a coffee place without any experience

Et voilà!

September 2013-September 2018

It’s been 5 years since I took over Café Madame Blå. I just turned 30 when I decided to put all my money in to buy that coffee place lost in the Swedish countryside… To be honest, that made me feel scared but also terribly excited at the same time… Why was I so scared?

Because I was living in Sweden for only 2 years, and I just knew a few Swedish words, I didn’t have any experience with that kind of work and I had no money left after I bought that place!

And last but not least: that was during the Autumn, which is the hardest season (with the winter) to start a business in that area. Indeed, Österlen is one the most popular places during the summer time, but everything ‘stops’ after the summer, except a few events in September like the ’Äppelmarknad’ (Apple festival) in Kivik.

It was really tuff, but I learned so much…
