Is it a good idea to have an exclusive coffee shop [such as CCD, Barista] serving different varieties and flavors of black coffee?

Welcome to Coffee Geek.

I'm personally not sure what you mean by flavors, but I think it depends on your market and your skills. Not everyone is going to be a roaster, at least right off. So finding coffees from a quality roaster is often the best way to start. Many places sell one roaster's products and others sell from many. When the market is bare, it can be good to go to more than one because you can go back and forth depending on price and offer more new products from time to time. You can over do it though.

It is important to know what you sell. And if you buy from 10 different places, how can you know it well?

I live in a place that is dry for quality. It's a 10-15 mile drive for me to find decent coffee. And in each of those directions, there is only 1-2 places. Three roasters total. However if I drive 45-60 miles, I can be in Los Angeles which is saturated with yummy coffee. Out here, selling more than one roaster wouldn't hurt. In LA, you'd have to be more careful because the guy down the street is your direct competition.

Not sure if I answered your question or not

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

do you game?:
