Here's a coffee truck from Kansas (an Airstream woohoo!) that has an additional menu other than coffee...but most of the beans are in the coffee basket.

They fetch a great price for product as well....

Thanks for the link Dr of BBQ.Just finished reading it; I agree there needs to be something unique about my outfit if I do an event or festival, but trying to think of something unique with coffee  might be a challenge, but I think I can do it. Good quality food and sanitiation wont be much of a problem for me; I'm a germophobe and want to keep my area clean. At Lowe Mill, the artists are required to donate a few hours a week to volunteer work at Lowe Mill, so doing coffee tastings on some unique style of brewing, like Turkish-style or French Press (without spending too much money to be profitable :) ) might help get some attention as well as fulfill some of my volunteer hours.
 
Also CC, that Airstream is sexy. I would run a coffee truck out of one :D. If I dont have tap water, It looks like I'm limited to storing gallons of distilled water to heat up and make coffee with; That's like a dollar a gallon unless I can get bulk filtered cheap (and good and clean) at a Costco. If that's not possible, I will need tap water, clean water storage tank (at least a few gallons), and a water pump. I'll contact the health dept when/if I hear anything back from Lowe Mill
 
Also CC

I'd offer to kick in a few volunteer hours ASAP whenever possible. That might go a long long way to becoming a friend of Lowe Mill.

Excellent places with items that have a serious traditional core & procedure to execute a proper item of quality often reach outside a little in terms of venue and atmosphere. It could be good visuals (that's why Barista "shows" & pizza tossing contests are very popular...to capture attention) because people often love to have a visual connection with a quality product. Great informative outgoing proud service...as well.

That makes a great bartender a great bartender...with a full bar...and tons of tips.

People in NYC line up in front of the windows to watch noodles being made at a Noodle Shop and donuts being made at a Donut shop. Same people wouldn't notice the Circus walking down the street.

Artists are very very visual.

You might also look at working with a local coffee shop. Cafe 153 is great local coffee shop in Huntsville that roasts their own beans, and has two locations now. They might be down with the idea of you being a mobile arm of their business.
