While exercising my dog last week, I found San Diego’s newest coffee roaster; or should I say the coffee roaster found me? Neff Coffee Roasters isn’t San Diego’s first coffee truck, but it is the first we’ve seen that actually roasts its coffee right there on the vehicle.
The namesake operators of the truck are David and Matthew Neff, a father-and-son duo who decided to turn son Matt’s coffee roasting hobby into a business that doubles as a chance to spend time together. With permission from the parks and recreation department, they set up shop some mornings in the parking lot of Grape Street Dog Park. That’s where I found them, exactly during that part of the morning I’m usually there and starting to crave my daily cup.
