The City of Carlsbad is seeking a cost-effective solution to provide barista quality hot beverages for our employees in our industrial park office location.


City city has an operations center in the middle of an industrial park. At this location there are many departments as well as our customer counter for permitting. Because it is in an industrial park the nearest quality coffee location is about 1.6 miles which is a 30-40 minute walk. The nearest Starbucks is over 2 miles away.

Though this may seem minor, this was the number one need that employees identified. Multiple employees cite the waste of time, the carbon emissions from driving, and the general inconvenience as reasons why an on-site solution to the afternoon coffee crisis is needed.

Requirements & Outcome

The requirements are simple:
  • Coffee shop quality hot beverages for employees
  • Low to no cost to the city solution
  • Minimum of afternoon coffee service
