ATLANTA - With the pop of a tent, the shake of a drink, and the snap of a to-go cup lid, Mike Twigg is a man in business.
“People still want their coffee,” Twigg says. “They always want their coffee.”
Twigg is the owner of MET BrewMasters, which is currently something of a cafe-on-wheels. His specialty is Nitro Coffee, which is cold brew coffee infused with nitrogen.
"It's colorless, it's odorless, and it's tasteless,” he says of nitrogen. “What it does do, it adds a slight hint of sweetness to the coffee. But what it also does, it gives you that visual aspect of the coffee, because the coffee's going to start cascading and create a head on the top. Just like a Guinness."
Twigg serves up his Nitro Coffee right from the back of his newly-purchased van. But his business wasn’t always a mobile one; in fact, he says the idea didn’t pop up until the entire world shut down.
"What is used to be, I would brew the Nitro Coffee and supply the coffee and a Kegerator to corporate offices around Buckhead, Midtown, etc.,” he says. "But, of course, since the pandemic came along, nobody's going in their offices. So, it's like, how am I going to keep my business afloat?"
No, with his fully outfitted “coffee caravan,” Twigg takes his product straight to the people — visiting apartment complexes, neighborhoods, businesses, and fundraisers. It may not be how he envisioned MET BrewMasters, but Twigg says as long as he’s spreading a little caffeinated joy right now, his cup is overflowing.
"It's great! I mean, I've got the shade, the table so we can comply, obviously, keep the six foot distance...it's just an awesome unit to take out and about."
