-- Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson and his team at LNBG LLC have entered the coffee business with a new concept in foodservice called Caffe Momenti. The project is currently in the planning and development phase, and Gibson calls the progress "exciting." "We are looking to bring an entirely new concept in coffee bars to the world, first to Europe and then to the United States. We are going to marry the Italian Deli with a gourmet coffee shop, providing customers with the opportunity to choose from the finest mid-day foods as well as premium coffee."
Gibson has thrown a unique twist into the mix with his partnership with Kona Coffee as well, a structured relationship that will allow for each Caffe Momenti to feature a blend that is unique only to that area. This particular idea is of great interest to coffee aficionados worldwide, as they will be able to try unique variations on their favorite coffees depending on the location. "It is very much like the concept behind wine and the production of unique runs that have different flavorings based upon different climates and times of year," Gibson stated. "We are going to take coffee, which is a staple in the daily routine of millions of people, and create a higher level concept from it, where people will be able to seek out the blend that speaks to them."
Lord Neil Gibson is no stranger to development of unique concepts and ground-up creation of business concepts. Although this will be the first foray into the retail food space, LNBG LLC has been on the cutting edge of problem solving and funding solutions for businesses worldwide for many years. So the question the public asks of Lord Neil Benjamin Gibson at this point is "why go into the coffee business?"
"That’s easy," answers Gibson. "Everyone loves coffee, so why not give them something to love even more?"
