Ran across this in Gizmodo, thought it was interesting. After a few hours, I can't get it off my mind, and find myself wondering if this might not work in our downtown. A few tweaks to match my demographic...
Anybody know these guys? Love the idea of brewing whatever they are digging at the moment...nobody more passionate than a barista with a new fave coffee.
Yeah, Brady, me too. I wonder why they chose that route? The filtration, familiarity? Because surely one could accomplish as much with the V60, or the Clever. I know it's not exactly the same, and perhaps that is the key...no one else has beheaded Chemexes. But now my brain is on auto-design, attempting to visualize and design a single trailer cart....Fun stuff!
I met these guys a couple weeks ago and made a short video about them for my blog (www.dearcoffeeiloveyou.com) They are really cool guys who just wanted to combine their passion for bikes and coffee.
They've been received really well in NY and it's a great model to introduce people to a variety of local roasters in unsuspecting places, like the park or farmer's markets. The idea seems like it could be replicated fairly easily, though the coffee cart—which they designed and manufactured themselves—is a key element to its success.
