The Beanhive Coffee Company, a vintage-style mobile coffee trailer, is serving espresso and plant energy- based drinks in West Milton.
Sandra Teague, who owns the coffee trailer with her husband, Billy, referred to herself as a “coffee snob.” She told Dayton.com she has always had a passion for coffee and enjoys visiting different shops across the area. After becoming 12 years sober, she said coffee quickly became her thing.
Teague said she knew she didn’t want to open a brick-and-mortar, so she decided to open a mobile trailer.
“I wanted something that I could have the flexibility to travel if I wanted or just change locations,” said Teague, a former home care nurse.
After less than a year of building the trailer from the ground up with her husband, she now serves the West Milton area seven days a week at 12 S. Miami St., depending on scheduled events.
The menu features popular espresso-based drinks like americanos, cappuccinos and lattes in addition to Lotus plant energy-based drinks. Teague said she wanted to find an option for non-coffee drinkers that still gave them caffeine. She described the taste of the energy drinks as something similar to an Italian soda. The drinks come in different flavors and edible glitter is also an option.
Teague said the company uses Mechanicsburg-based Hemisphere Coffee Roasters for its beans.
The Beanhive Coffee Company is a family-run business. Teague works with her daughter-in-law and plans to have her niece and husband help with events.
“Our future goal is to get a second mobile to travel the United States and leave this mobile here for my daughter-in-law and son,” Teague said.
