Mud Truck

David Greenbaum | Apr 23, 2003 08:44 AM

The "Mud Truck" has been parked outside my office for the last two mornings. I've seen them before on Astor Place, and remember a news article here and there. Never tried the coffee before.

I guess they got another truck, and it's roaming around Manhattan.

There's something about this that appeals to me. A large cup costs $2, which is about the same as a "grande" Starbucks. Maybe 10 cents more. The point is that they are "anti-establishment" and "anti-Starbucks," and offer a quality cup of coffee without the corporate BS. Not sure if this is really true, but I sort of buy into the hype.

Down here on buttoned-up Wall Street, it's nice to see a bit of rebellion (accompanied by a bit of rock n' roll).

The coffee? Good. Strong. Hot.

What do others think?
