The Coffee Trike is a completely self-contained and mobile specialty coffee tricycle. The brainchild of Alessandro “San” Bellino, a bicycle enthusiast, musician, and former United States Barista Championship competitor. San, an Australian native, has 10 years experience in the hospitality industry and has been a coffee enthusiast since 2003. The concept revealed itself in 2011 after San competed in the USBC, which inspired him to look into opening his own coffee business in Boston. After a few months of looking for a coffee shop space to no avail, and seeing how interesting the growing mobile food scene in the Boston area was becoming, San decided to ask “Why not mobile specialty coffee?” Shortly after, San approached The Massachusetts Small Business Development Center and The Coffee Trike was born.
The Coffee Trike is committed to sustainable business practices and supporting the local business community. The trike offers a small, high quality menu featuring coffee roasted by The George Howell Coffee Company in Acton, MA and milk from Mapleline Farm in Hadley, MA. All paper goods are biodegradable and compostable and drinks are prepared using the finest equipment available. Look for Alessandro and his trike this and every Sunday at the SoWa Food Truck Court.

“I love to hunt; whether to scour the beach for sea treasures – shells, stones, driftwood, sea glass – or to hunt in antiques shops and flea markets for vintage stuff. Color and texture draw me in and it is with these passions that I create my wax works.”
“Wax is an incredible medium to work with. Never one for patience but always one for planning, I find wax perfect. You need to work fast and know where you’re going but it still leaves room for the unexpected. I love the texture and the way the light plays through it. It is difficult to convey it’s depth in pictures.”
Amy will be at the SoWa Arts Market this Sunday, May 19th.
