Coffee On the Go’s baristas brew free-trade and organic beans into an assortment of steaming coffee and specialty drinks. As cars idle at the red caboose-style kiosk’s window, eyes scan an extensive menu of train-themed selections that include the Caramel Conductor (a caramel macchiato), the Hobo (an Americano), and the Halfway Home (a breve). Coffee lovers can keep it simple with freshly brewed regular or decaf cups of joe supplemented with a choice of soy or fat-free milk. Elsewhere on the menu, Ghirardelli syrup juices up cups of hot chocolate, and frozen coffee drinks and smoothies send chills down guests’ spines as energizing as a smooch from Frosty the Snowman.
Coffee On the Go...
Fair-trade coffee beans are intended to give coffee farmers, including many who live in developing countries, reasonable prices for their crops. Marlene Brown, owner of Coffee On the Go… use fair-trade coffees in all of the drinks that fill their shop with happy chatter. The little red coffeehouse is built to resemble an old-fashioned train caboose, which is appropriate given how close the kiosk is to the Western Museum of Mining & Industry and how frequently blues musicians write songs about it.
Cloaked in curtains of steam, baristas warm milk for cappuccinos with railroad-themed names and craft hot cocoa. Smoothies brim with the flavors of additive-free fruit pulp, and a drive-up coffee kiosk ensures that on-the-go customers need only open their car window or wooden horse’s trap door to collect a drink.
