HubBub Coffee is going back to its mobile roots.
The coffee shop, which started as a truck, is introducing a fleet of Cold Brew Trikes for the summer. The trikes will debut this Sunday, July 12th with a bike trek across Philadelphia. The fleet will find its way through University City (the ride starts at HubBub’s UCity location at 11am), Rittenhouse Square and South Street. However, you can follow the exact path via social media; they’ll update their Twitter and Instagram with the route.
Are these trikes worth tracking? Take it from someone who’s drinking their cold brew as we speak… Yes.
Both trikes will carry one keg of cold-brewed iced coffee. This coffee, created through a partnership with ReAnimator Coffee, brews for 24 hours to develop an expertly crafted cup. And most importantly, it’s cold. Perfect for this weather and not watered down by an excessively large scoop of ice.
Not around this weekend? Chill. The trikes and the cold brew will be around all summer.
Honestly, I didn’t know that affogato had a season. But when it comes to matters of ice cream and its manifold applications, I’ll trust in the wisdom of the professional weirdoes at Little Baby’s Ice Cream.
So here’s the deal: According to the LBIC crew, it’s affogato season. And they’re celebrating by wheeling out their official ice cream tricycle and sending it over to Hub Bub Coffee at 3736 Spruce Street where, tomorrow, Thursday, April 3, from 3pm-6pm, they’ll be selling scoops to all and sundry and giving away free single scoops (in a cone or cup) to anyone who orders an affogato from Hub Bub.
So why Hub Bub? Because Hub Bub will now be stocking Little Baby’s Ice Cream, for the express purpose of making even more affogatos.
