It’s the tail end of summer, which means it’s the tail end of Build-Outs of Coffee, and the perfect time of year to start planning your dream fall activities. And if you’re anything like us here at Sprudge, that means leaf peeping, the consumption of apple cider donuts, and of course some delicious coffee. Luckily for Vermonters, the quaint, lovely town of Woodstock is home to Abracadabra Coffee Co., who since 2015 have been roasting great coffee on the banks of the Ottauquechee River. Now the team at Abracadabra are rolling out the newest member of the family: a converted 1964 Shasta trailer, serving up coffee, treats, and super chill experiences. The whole thing feels Vermont AF in the very best way imaginable. Let’s take a closer look.
As told to Sprudge by Clint Hunt.
For those who aren’t familiar, will you tell us about your company?
Abracadabra Coffee Co. was founded in 2015 by some stange folx in Vermont. We roast super wild coffees and try not to take coffee or really anything too seriously.
Can you tell us a bit about the new space?
We have converted a 1964 Shasta trailer into a mobile coffee/ice cream/waffle dream machine.
What’s your approach to coffee?
To convert everyone to specialty. We have super approachable coffees and super funky ones to please any palate. We also just like to have fun and make sure the whole experience is chill. Knowwhatimean?!
Any machines, coffees, special equipment lined up?
We have a two-group La Marzocco Linea PB AV, two Mahlkönig E65S GBWs, Mahlkönig EK43S, M3 Puqpress, Quinspin, Wilbur Curtis G4, Spaceman 3 dispenser soft serve machine, and four taps for cold brew, draft latte, draft teas, and more. We will have an Oatly soft serve option and offer liege waffles and canelés as well.
How is your project considering sustainability?
We will be running this project on solar power, using only biodegradable cups, straws, lids, spoons for all beverages and ice cream, offering bulk options for whole bean coffee and cold brew, and composting all the spent coffee grounds.
What’s your hopeful target opening date/month?
July 23, 2021.
