Mobile coffee shop trailers

03/07/2009

A little known fact about Oregon is this: at most rest areas along I-5 you can get a free cup of coffee from a mobile coffee cart. One such coffee trailer — of the patriotic variety — was spotted just outside of Albany, OR. (source)

There’s even a guidebook for those interested in experiencing the roadside delicacies along the interstate, Baristas Without Borders: A Road Guide to Coffee Kiosks on I-5 Oregon & Washington.

But mobile coffee shops are not just a common occurrence in the Pacific Northwest. If you start looking around, you’ll find them everywhere. (Even for sale on Craigslist.) Generally I find most food carts to be tame, lacking a certain spunk.

Here is a recent coffee shop trailer design by Daniel Milchtein. Aside from the hot dog bun roof, I think this design has great potential. Perhaps Airstream inspired?

Speaking of Airstreams, a mobile coffee shop dubbed “The Silver Bean” in Cortez, Colorado proves once again that there’s not much you have to do to an Airstream to make it cute.
