A new food truck called The Sugarbird Coffee Truck is under development. Owner Justin Dewalt plans to provide seating, music, wi-fi hotspot and other items to create a cafe-like feel in the immediate area around the truck.
Sugarbird will serve coffee from Unrest, a small Mid-Coast roaster founded by Micah Beaulieu, that roasts their coffee outdoors with specific hardwoods matched to the qualities of the beans.
Dewalt recently spent time in South Africa running the tasting room for Springfontein Wine Estate and it was while he was hiking in the Western Cape region that he came across a Sugarbird that became the inspiration for the name of the business. Prior to his time in South Africa he worked as the wine manager at Central Provisions.
Watch for Sugarbird to be out serving coffee and baked goods on Commercial Street and the Eastern Prom sometime next month.
