Misfit Coffee plans to keep the Mill District cool this summer

With the warmer weather nearly in full swing Misfit Coffee Company is moving back to its trailer from Izzy’s Ice Cream in the Mill District. 

Founder Marcus Parkansky is planning the switch to summer hours after this weekend. The trailer will be located near the Mill City Museum and Guthrie Theater during the morning hours and near Gold Medal Park in the afternoon. The trailer will also be close to the Mill City Farmers Market on Saturdays.

The trailer, which launched last year as the state’s only mobile specialty coffee shop, the founders say, will have new refillable growlers (32-ounce, 64-ounce and gallon sizes) with cold brew coffee. Its winter home, Izzy’s at 2nd & 11th, will also serve Misfit’s nitro cold brew coffee and floats made from the coffee.

Misfit is also rebranding its retail coffee beans with a unique partnership. The coffee trailer serves Milwaukee-based Valentine Coffee Co., which Parkansky previously worked with in Wisconsin, and will now offer an exclusive line of Misfit beans roasted by Valentine. Izzy’s will carry four kinds of 12-ounce bags of coffee beans.

Coffee fans will also find Misfit out at music and movies in Father Hennepin Bluff Park on Tuesdays, Parkansky said.
