In the winter of 2012, Jay and Bonah Han decided to build a Specialty Coffees House under Hotel DeOro.
The previous tenant was a movie gallery, which went down after all the 4,700 movie rental businesses in North America closed down in 2010. Thereafter, Jay & Bonah (Hotel DeOro's owners & managers) took over the location as a private movie store under the name "Starburst Movie" for a couple years, until closing it in the fall of 2011.
The DeOro Coffee Lounge was designed & established by Jay Han; he was inspired by the many beach side cafés in Saipan (Northern Mariana Island), where he previously ran a business 23 years ago. Jae envisioned a tropical holiday vacation feel for the lounge, and hired local talents to begin construction.

Photo 2: Bonah using a heavy duty concrete grinder to remove the old carpet glue off the floor. This process took 4 days to complete. The photo shows Bonah's considerable amount of contribution to the project.
Photo 3: Kerry N., Lillooet's local wood craft and odd jobs specialist, builds the cashier, kitchen area cabinets, and shelves.
Photo 4: Eric F., Lillooet's dry wall and carpenter, builds the handmade seating tables by the front window, the condiment table, continental breakfast serving table, and the sofa seating area table, all with Lillooet’s local woods. Years later, he constructed the dry wall as well as the supply storage room in the hotel reception.

Photo 6: Arron E., Lillooet's electrician, installs the power lines as well as lighting.
Jay and Bonah would like to express their appreciation to all of Lillooet's suppliers for their time. Everyone truly showed dedication to their work.
