RoosRoast Coffee Truck
I Spy May 2013
by Sally Bjork
"That's the RoosRoast Coffee Lobster Butter Love truck!!" exclaims Diane McIntyre. "I love their coffee ... too bad they're not an advertiser in case I would win!!!" "While I'm not much of a coffee person myself," writes Olivia Popp, she appreciates the company's "creative artwork." "This image is fresh in my mind," writes Nathan Longan--he "just bought a half pound of 'Butter Love' beans." They have "hilariously named coffees," notes Longan, who was introduced to RoosRoast at Bona Sera Cafe, where they serve the exclusive Bad Ass Woman Brew. Other RoosRoast mainstays include AA Cowboy Blend and Rich French Neighbor.
Lobster Butter Love is "one of RoosRoast's most popular flavors (and my favorite)," writes Kate Townsend. "My wife and I love [it]," shares Jason Schultz. "Though it's available for purchase at the A2 Farmer's Market and [many] markets around town, I sometimes find myself just stopping in at their site on Rosewood to pick up more, and the van is often right there, too."
"Good brew and good folks!" sums up Joan Harris. "You should combine the I Spy and Fake Ad," quips Melodie Marske, "certainly some amazing RoosRoast Coffee could cheer up 'The Downers.'"
