I don’t know about you, but I can’t do anything…And I mean anything…Until I’ve had my morning coffee. Whether you like it on ice, with some flavor, or black, coffee is consumed by millions of people around the world.
If you’re like me and go to the coffee church that is Starbucks, business.org has a dream opportunity for you. They are willing to pay people to taste-test coffee for an entire month for $1,000.
What’s the catch? They’re hoping that people ‘ditch corporate coffee joints for a full month and frequent locally-owned coffee shops instead.’
According to business.org, ‘a whopping 82% of businesses that fail go under because of cash flow problems’. As small business advocates, their taste-tester plan is intended to raise awareness of local, tasty coffee establishments across the US.
Of course, you can’t just drink a couple of cups of coffee and collect your cash. You have to visit at least eight locally-owned coffee shops over the course of a month, take pictures of your beverages, write short summaries of your experiences, and share photos on social media.
They also want you to track things like the cost, benefits, and the reasons why you would switch from a larger coffee shop to a locally-owned one.
Business.org’s website outlines that upon hiring, you’ll be paid $250 upfront with the rest paid once the job is completed.
