Coffee lovers and baristas Sara Tallyn and Nick Endejan both dreamed of opening a coffee shop some day, but for two young people just starting out, a brick-and-mortar store didn’t seem feasible. When Tallyn landed a job at The Sweet Divine, however, the wheels started turning.
“Nobody has a coffee truck,” Tallyn says. “We started thinking about it, and things took off. We’re finalizing our logo. Our social-media pages will be up in a week or two. We’ve chosen Goshen Coffee as our supplier, and we’ll offer a full coffee experience.
“We’ll be making espresso-based drinks, cappuccinos and lattes, smoothies, blended espresso drinks and local teas. We want to cover the bases, including V60 pour overs.”
The truck will also carry pastries and baked goods from The Sweet Divine and other snacks foods. Jenna Seibert, co-owner of The Sweet Divine, mentored Tallyn through the early stages of the food truck tango.

“They’ve been great. We wouldn’t have known where to start,” Tallyn says. “We’ll be going out together on occasion because what do you want with a cupcake or pastry? Coffee.”
Look for The Gateway Grind Coffee Truck on the road in early November.
