Women love coffee too...

THE owner of a city coffee shop and wine bar targeted at women customers has announced ambitious plans to open another five shops in the Capital.

Graham Allen, of Espresso Mondo on Lothian Road, today claimed to be on target for a £400,000 turnover at the nine-month-old shop.

The businessman, who also owns a Morningside travel agency, said Espresso Mondo was set to make 15 per cent net profit by the year's end.

The coffee shop and wine bar is unashamedly chasing the female market, and Mr Allen claims women represent 80 per cent of his clientele. But success has followed some hard lessons for Mr Allen, whose combined travel agency and coffee shop outlet in the ERI was forced to close.
