Mobile Coffee

A little espresso bar on wheels

A little truck equipped with an espresso bar is bringing new meaning to a "coffee to go" in Edmonton.

The mobile coffee shop is called Lui-Chi’s Espresso and Fine Treats.

It's named after Luigi, a chihuahua. The little doggo belongs to the human behind the wheel and pulling the espresso shots — Shawn Kaminski, a local musician.

You can find Lui-Chi’s around town.

One of its frequent stops is the T-intersection at the centre of Rice Howard Way.

Once parked, Shawn serves up organic coffee made from organic wood-roasted, whiskey barrel-aged beans as well as a small sampling of pastries.

It's all powered by a generator tucked into a dog house on the trailer pulled by the espresso truck.
