My Story- Penny Merchant

Welcome to The Coffee Merchant. I am really excited to begin this new journey in life. After being an elementary teacher for over 20 years, I have retired and am ready to embark on Coffee!


My family and I have lived and worked in Bayfield, Colorado for about 20 years and have grown to love the families and community in our little town. One thing our town is known for is helping one another and supporting each other whenever there is a need. Because of this, I wanted to give a little back to our community. When I was teaching there were many mornings when I just wanted to run and grab a quick cup of coffee. Unfortunately, we didn't have drive-up shop to just grab and go. This made me think that maybe other people felt the same way. Hence...The Coffee Merchant.


The Coffee Merchant is a mobile unit that is beautifully set up to create delicious coffee, smoothies, and teas. Not to mention burritos, muffins, and other breakfast items. Once we get going, we are also planning on being open for lunch. And... I have to say, I can make a mean sandwich.  

My goals

The choices I have made for this business were focused on a healthy and environmental approach.


The coffee is coming from acclaimed roasters not offered in this area. We are using Cuvee Roasters and serving a dark roast. They are from Spicewood, TX. The beans are just delicious.

We are using recyclable coffee sleeves and recycle all of our milk jugs and coffee grounds. The trailer is also equipped with solar panels to lessen the affect on the environment.

We have amazing burritos that are cooked up fresh everyday from a local guy. Not to mention oatmeal for those that want a healthy, but not filling breakfast.

Come on over and check us out!

Because I will be running out of a mobile unit, there is not a lot of space to be able to accommodate every request for specific drinks. I will be offering a wide variety of beverages and will also be open for suggestions to possibly switch out with seasonal drinks. Please let me know if there is something you would like and I will do my best to accommodate your request.
