THE Coffee Bean opened on Wednesday at the Charan Jeath Singh Nabua Complex. It's owned by Romita Sharma and not Paul Waqaniyasana as our story mentioned.

Ms Sharma, a former teacher turned entrepreneur, opened the coffee shop The Coffee Bean as it had always been her passion and not a dream.

She said the coffee shop was an investment of more than $100,000.

"We have put a lot of thought in creating a classy, comfortable atmosphere so customers can feel at home while enjoying the finest coffee/pastries and full day healthy breakfast or blackboard menu," said Ms Sharma.

The shop is managed by our head barista Paul Waqaniyasana who also provides professional chef and assistance.

Ms Sharma said for now their opening hours will be from 7am until 6pm and they will move on to closing at 9pm when the business gets busy.

She also has plans for expansion in future.
