I've often thought that for the coffeehouse concept to survive, it should be piggybacked onto some other type of retail. My personal wish would be for it to be piggybacked onto an Apple Store or Windows Store-type concept. Just imagine the emotional home run this could be. A constant source of frustration for me is my inability to engage with technology in a time-effective manner in my free time. Imagine the sales proposition of being able to offer the technical facilities to enable the customer to get a *shitload* done in 15 or 30 minutes while drinking that latte. My current stereotype of coffeehouse patrons is the unmoving twentysomething couple on laptops, camped out for hours on end and filling the cafe area, while the only drinks or money that change hands do so out the drive-thru. I realize that overemployment isn't exactly an epidemic right here, right now--but those in that position would likely be exceedingly grateful for a superfast Internet connection and a consistently "very good" or better drink.
