Who Are We?
Jennifer and Quinn are entrepreneurs and theater artists living in the Bay Area who have a passion for coffee, bikes, and theater.
We believe in community.
We began Up Bay Coffee Pedalers as a way to connect with our communities; we use local businesses and artisan roasters, and highlight the incredible resources in the Bay Area.
We believe in connecting and living and enjoying coffee together as a community; We believe in sitting around and having conversations. Laughing. Sharing.
We believe in the cold brewed process.
We believe that to make a cup of coffee that is smooth, less acidic, and tastes great, the cold brew process is unsurpassable. We take care in everything we do from sourcing our beans to perfecting our cold-brew process in order to provide a healthier cup of coffee. We also believe for a cold brew to really stand out, it needs to be infused with nitrogen. By adding nitrogen to the coffee, it creates a smoother, creamier, and full-bodied mouth-feel that highlights each coffee's individual character.
We believe in education.
We believe not only in consumer education, but ours as well. We are constantly learning new brewing techniques, learning more about the origins and harvesting of the beans we use, and the practices and the roasting processes of our partners, in order to consistently provide a quality sustainable product. On a bike.
Why A Bike?
Because bikes are cool, that's why! They offer carbon neutral, environmentally sustainable transportation, and are an innovative way to connect with the community and get to know neighbors. Plus, Jennifer wants to build up her quads.
Who Are Our Roasters?
We are proudly serving cold brew developed using Red Bay Coffee, roasted locally in Oakland, CA.
If you are a local roaster and want us to try your beans for our brew, please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where Can We Find You?
The coffee pedalers are still setting up shop. However, you can find us twice monthly at the DBC Artisan Kitchen
and every Saturday, 9-2pm at Jen Tough Gallery.
Look for us soon to pedal our way around local festivals, farmers markets, college campuses, or maybe you'll see us pedaling down your street one day.
Don't worry. Once we're up and running, we will have a calendar of our locations, dates, and times.
Oh, yeah, follow us on Facebook and Instagram @coffeepedalers
