The Coffee Trike is one of Boston’s best small-business success stories. By combining a hand built tricycle, top-of-the-line espresso machine, and a deep passion for the final product.. San Bellino and his team made waves that ripple through the entire New England coffee scene. Any area coffee shop worth its salt knows, and probably dotes over, San and his unique setup.
We teamed up with San on a spin-off of Cup Club - the customer loyalty program that rewards reuse. For one day only, every coffee and espresso drink at The Coffee Trike that went in a reusable cup, instead of a single-use cup, was 100% free! On us! Any cup, any beverage, anything but another disposable cup!
…And it was a hit! We were there to shake hands and high-five everyone who made the conscious effort to choose to reuse. Americans throw away more than 58 billion cups every year, using a reusable mug instead of disposable coffee cups for one year saves 88 pounds of greenhouse gasses, 126 trees, & 76 gallons of water. We truly believe every cup counts and that by looking at how our habits add up we can make little changes that make a big difference.
San and The Coffee Trike served up their last beverages last week as the team transitioned into opening a complete coffee shop in partnership with Massachusetts based roasters Gracenote Coffee. The new shop is located at 108 Lincoln Street, Boston, 02111.
