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.
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. At this time, we are using Cuvee Roasters. Once we are up and running with our commissary kitchen, the menu items will be prepared fresh daily.
We are using recyclable coffee sleeves and eco-friendly lids that use 30% less material by weight (foamaroma.com) than the typical lid. The trailer is also equipped with solar panels to lessen the affect on the environment.
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.
