We certainly are! Both of our owners grew up here and attended school in Bloomington, Indiana. Having been life-long friends, Alex Rubin and Chaz Sinn decided to start up this company as they noticed growing interest and demand in the mobile food industry. One of the co-owners of our local coffee roaster, Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company, is a native to Bloomington as well. Wes Burton is from here and met his wife Debi Burton (co-owner) at Indiana University, Why should you choose STIR Mobile Coffee? Because by choosing us, you are supporting not just one, but TWO local businesses to Bloomington, Indiana!

Is STIR Mobile Coffee a local company to Bloomington, Indiana? Where are your owners from?

Does STIR mobile coffee have a shop or store front?

The short answer is no, we do not have a coffee shop or store front location. As a mobile coffee service, we have a fully functional coffee van that we drive directly to large local events to set up and serve coffee directly out of the back of our mobile coffee van. We own a STIR branded (silver color) 2001 Volkswagen Eurovan that can be found out at events. As more of an event/catering service and with our new STIR Cold Brew Coffee products (not produced on the van, but in a county/state health inspected and cerified commissary) we simply don't have a need at this point and time for a shop.

In short, Uel Zing Coffee and STIR Cold Brew Coffee are simply two very different coffee beverages due to the coffee roasting process itself. Uel Zing Coffee is roasted in the "light" range, while STIR Cold Brew Coffee is roasted in the "medium" range. This highlights very different aromas and flavors in each local bottled cold brew. STIR Cold Brew Coffee also offers flavored varieties and are the first and only local cold brew to do so!

I've had Uel Zing cold brew coffee before. How is STIR Cold Brew Coffee different?

What differentiates STIR Cold Brew Coffee from big national brands such as Califia Farms, Chameleon Cold Brew, or High Brew Coffee?

What really sets STIR Cold Brew Coffee apart from big national competition is that we offer one of the freshest ready-to-drink cold brew coffees on the market. Our local coffee roaster, Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company, delivers fresh roasted coffee every Wednesday afternoon to our commissary that we put directly into our brewers first thing each Thursday; then every Friday we bottle our products and distribute to stores. Our products never sit for days or even weeks in a stock room walk-in cooler. We only stock what's necessary on the shelves to guarantee ultra-fresh products and re-stock multiple times per week if necessary.

What kind of coffee does STIR Mobile Coffee serve? Does STIR use a local coffee roaster?

STIR Mobile Coffee is proud to be a local company to Bloomington, Indiana and to serve locally roasted coffee from Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company. Quarrymen Coffee Roasting Company was established in 2008 and roasts some of Bloomington's finest artisan coffee. Quarrymen has created both the STIR House Blend (hot coffee) and STIR Cold Brew Blend (cold brew coffee) just for our company. We serve other coffees from Quarrymen as well at events. Choose STIR and support not just one, but TWO local businesses!

We print or hand-write the date on every single bottle of STIR Cold Brew Coffee on the day we bottle it. Our regular and original STIR Cold Brew Coffee is best within 4 weeks of this date. All of our flavored varieties are best within 6 weeks of this date due to the pure cane sugar in them acting as a natural preservative.

What is the shelf life of STIR Cold Brew Coffee?

Does STIR Mobile Coffee offer any food such as baked goods or pastries?

While we are a mobile business and have dipped our feet into the "Food Truck" realm, we do not prepare any food on board our mobile coffee van. The only food products we technically have are a variety of milk products that only require refrigeration. However, we can provide food by picking up orders from a local bakery and we sell pre-packaged goods such as Biscotti.

Where can I find STIR Mobile Coffee or STIR Cold Brew Coffee products?

STIR Mobile Coffee (our van) can be found at events listed here on our, Upcoming Coffee Events page, or by purchasing our STIR Cold Brew Coffee products in select Bloomington, Indiana stores and locations here: Where to find and purchase STIR Cold Brew?
