About

We've already named her "Anne" in reference to her famous red hair :)
We've already named her "Anne" in reference to her famous red hair :)

Hello, so nice to see you!    

Welcome to PEI Coffee Company's project: Coffee Truck! 

This 2019 summer season, we would like to serve you fresh PEI roasted organic coffee from our 1950 Dodge Fargo pour-over coffee bar. You'll find us in the heart of downtown Charlottetown, PEI, on the corner of Kent & Great George St. 

Summers on PEI are gorgeous and our drink menu will offer hot and cold, handcrafted drinks to keep you going on your summer adventures.

We've been searching for the perfect truck and found her in Ontario! Luck struck again when the current owner (Hi Michael!) is willing to hold on to her, while we raise funds via this Kickstarter project. Michael wants her to have a new life in a good home and will pass on  her legacy to us; we couldn't be more honored!

Last year PEI Coffee Company coffees and teas were found in Prince Edward Island shops, tip to tip. We're so grateful to the people who chose our products to be a reminder of their vacation and as presents for friends and family. We were brought "back home' to places as far as Africa and Japan! We were also featured on The Marilyn Denis Show as part of her "10 Days of Giveaways" this past holiday season! Our roaster is a master roaster of 25 years and perfectly roasts by instinct. Our tea blender is also a tea sommelier. Small Island; Big Talent! 

One of my most favorite things to do is wander around our beautiful city or lay on the beach with a great, fresh and preferably organic, cup of coffee (no matter the temperature outside!) Sometimes a "good cup of coffee" is hard to find when you're out and about so the coffee truck will be designed to operate anywhere an event is happening. What a treat.

Speaking of treat, this brings me to the "why" of my business.  4 years ago, when I was a new mom to our two little girls, I had post-partum depression. All my focus was on them and not at all on myself. However, I did do one thing for self-care; a cup of coffee. Each mug was a treat and I savored each sip. I used to bundle the girls up, grab a coffee and drive around the beautiful Eastern PEI coastline while they napped and I enjoyed a coffee in silence. So simple but it meant so much.

Most times a cup of coffee or tea is not just a cup of coffee or tea. It's a get together with a friend; a conversation companion. Your morning routine. A must when you're at the kitchen table, playing cards and the CFCY Saturday night hoedown is on the radio. Time for yourself. A thoughtful gift for someone. Connection.

So you see this coffee truck isn't just about selling coffee for me. It's also about serving people an experience that will make them smile while also sharing our PEI charm and hospitality.   

If you didn't already, check out our video! Closed captioning is available for the folks who watch videos with the sound off and you'll be happy to know that my skill is coffee and not video making haha!

Thank you so incredibly much for your support and please share this Kickstarter project and spread the coffee love!


Until next time, Jen Vandermaar


P.S.  All of our drink packaging on the truck will be compostable. That's right. Even the lids and straws.(I don't know about you but we're excited about that!)

Risks and challenges

A problem that could happen is with reward scheduling. Two of our rewards involve booking the coffee truck, so we will do our best to accommodate all bookings and will book on a first bought, first book, basis.

    Can I buy ya a Cuppa Coffee?

    Send a friend (or yourself) a treat!

    Our single serve coffee is a clever way to have a fresh pour over cup of coffee where you need it, when you need it. Simply fit the pre filled filter over a cup and pour hot water into it. The filter is filled with our "Who's yer father?" medium roast. After your cup is as full as you like it, toss the filter and packaging in the compost. That's right, everything in the compost! Easy for camping, sampling, hiking, bon fire-ing, and party favour-ing.
