What do you love about being on the Cafe2U team? 

I love the idea of a mobile coffee van, and since it hasn't caught on in The States yet, I wanted to be a part of a team that do it right. Also it gives me an opportunity to set my own hours.

What did you do before Cafe2U?  

Most of my time was spent being a Mom! I also worked part time in a childrens' clothing store.

What's your favourite Cafe2U moment?                                                                   

Serving great coffee to my customers! I'm excited to meet new people and develop relationships with them as they become friends.

What's your favourite Cafe2U drink?  

Close tie between caramel latte delight and a cappuccino.

What do you do to be involved in your local community?

I hope to get involved with fundraising events to benefit local organizations and/or individuals. I plan on donating coffee at the relay for life and fill a boot days annually, and will look for other events to participate in as well.

September

September 21st, 2014; International students attending the University of Oregon from around the world, along with their host families, attended the annual Friendship Foundation for International Students BBQ lunch at Alton Baker Park in Eugene,OR, under sunny blue skies and warm weather. Cafe2U was there to serve espresso drinks to the students, many of whom were making their first purchase in US dollars, and the host families, who patiently helped clarify coffee terms and count correct change. The U of O mascot, Puddles the duck, also made an appearance, and liked the Cafe2U van so much that he climbed in the drivers seat and threatened to leave with it...but settled for a picture with owner Serena Liu and employee Jenessa instead. Students enjoyed the coffee, food, games, new friends from around the world, and an introduction into the culture of Eugene.

May

Bark In The Park
Eugene, OR for the 21st annual Bark in the Park, with rain clouds threatening overhead.  This event is one of Eugene's biggest community attended events, with over 1,100 participants in the 5k run and 2k walk. Hosted by the Humane Society, the event features a challenge course for dogs, information booths, vendor booths, and plenty of dog treats.  True to Eugene weather, the rain clouds opened up just as the 5k started, which made our Cafe2U tent a popular place for observers wanting to stay dry.

December

25th December

On Christmas morning, Cafe2U Eugene (Serena and the whole family) were up and ready at 8am to serve free coffees to their city firefighters. Cafe2U Eugene did the rounds to 11 fire stations and served a total of 37 coffees. There is much debate around who got the most of out this activity - the firefighters were so appreciative of the free coffees and the kids had such a great time meeting all the guys and getting tours of every station while climbing all over the trucks. Steve and Serena got a chance to meet a bunch of great guys and have some great conversations.











Cafe2U Eugene thinks that they'll be making this an annual tradition!
