Proposal: Coffee

Get other people to commit.

That's really all there is until private beta starts.


Example questions are locked during this commitment phase. Should people curious about the commitment phase discuss the example questions in chat or in Area 51 Q&A?

For example, I have 2 questions, inspired by an example question:

  1. Why can questions about opening a new coffee shop not be asked in Seasoned Advice?
  2. Has Seasoned Advice Meta discussed an expansion of scope to cover business concerns of professional caterers?

Update I have found a question on Cooking.SE, a catering tag and a meta discussion that between them suggest to me that professional catering is in scope there:

    I'm not sure why you've posted further questions as an answer here, but for what it's worth, catering (as in large-scale food/beverage prep) is on topic on Seasoned Advice but business is not. So if you want to ask about whether equipment X will help you do task Y, go for it. If you want to ask about cash registers, not so much.
