At just 14 years old Alicia Alwood has successfully fulfilled her dream to start her own business reports the Morning Sun.
Cuppa Talk Coffee opened two months ago at the Alwood Nursery.
“I figured out in the hospital that I wanted to do a coffee shop,” said Alicia. “I told my mom it was time for me to do something for my dream.”
Cuppa Talk Coffee is a one day a week operation, open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.
There are 14 different types of Keurig coffee that Cuppa Talk offers. They have everything from strong coffee, decaf, half-caf, regular, mocha, tea, green tea, and hot chocolate.
Every cup of coffee costs $1.50. All snacks including doughnuts, cookies, and brownies are free.
Alicia has been in and out of the hospital her entire life. She was born premature and has a condition called Hydrocephalus.
Alicia has had 57 surgeries, and the last time she was in the hospital she decided that enough was enough and it was time to make her dream come true.
“I said mom when I get out of the hospital I want to own a coffee shop,” said Alicia.
And a little while later her goal had been achieved.
The next step for Cuppa Talk Coffee is a possible expansion into their own store. But for now they’re taking it slow.
