About Out Of The Blu

We believe what well be doing is unique. We are passionate foodies with a goal  to bring our espresso van packed with delicious goodies, which are made fresh daily from famous bay area bakeries, to your neighborhood in Northern CA. We will be proudly serving espresso and drip coffee from our favorite roaster "Blue Bottle Coffee". CNN says 

"Blue Bottle: The best coffee you may ever drink"

The Details?

We currently live in the burbs in Napa county and really miss living the city life. We miss walking downstairs or around the corner to get the great food or drink that you can only have there. Then we thought what if we purchased a truck and brought those favorite foods and drinks we love to our neck of the woods. So we thought lets start with our favorite coffee. We purchased a van and coffee/espresso equipment (a 2 group La Marzocco, a clover machine, and grinders) and trained with "Blue Bottle Coffee". We thought we were all set and could get the business running right away. Well... we found out the hard way there were a lot of unexpected costs and getting a food truck to meet CA state code and county health department standards costs quite a bit of money … that’s money we don’t have. We were turned down funding from traditional sources but are determined to not let that stop us. We are passionate about our idea to bring great coffee to people around the bay area and beyond. 

So we are turning to Kickstarter. We are proud to say we have donated to a few fully funded Kickstarter projects and now we hope the Kickstarter community can come through for us with ours. Please consider partnering up with us. We want to make sure that you saw where your money is going, and that you are getting your dollar’s worth with whatever your pledge may be. Our minimum funding goal is $1 with $12,500 as our target goal. (*If we make our target goal. well invite all of you who donate to a private VIP party to celebrate!)
