St(r)eam Coffee and Tea Bike offers Boise whimsy and caffeine

Coffee lovers may have found an alley in Boise's St(r)eam Coffee and Tea Bike.

It's not often that you see a man peddling down the streets of Boise with a coffee-making contraption trailing behind him. But if you do happen to see this unusual sight, chances are that it's St(r)eam owner Jodi Eichelberger on his way to create some sumptuous drinks for customers.

The all-in-one cart has a steampunk feel, making you think gadgets, gizmos, and gears, with a touch of whimsy. If you're ever in search of Eichelberger's creations, keep an eye out for the large black and white striped umbrella that shades his process from the weather. Don't worry, though his apparatus may look like it's from another time period, he does take credit cards for those of us who can't seem to ever remember cash.

If you enjoy beverages, art, and bicycles, then St(r)eam's Artist Studio/Gallery Bike Tour might be the ticket. This bicycle tour takes you to different locations in order to meet various artists and appreciate their work. Each event comes with a complimentary tea or coffee beverage. The last tour of the season is happening Saturday, October 24. You'll want to get your tickets soon, as the tour is limited to 16.

If you do get a chance to try out St(r)eam's creation, you might want to opt for the cold brew. Sure, temperatures are dropping outside, but Eichelberger's cold brew set-up removes about 70 percent of the coffee's acidity, creating a unique coffee flavor that you won't find at Starbucks. Eichelberger told the Boise Weekly that his contraption consists of three towers that the water slowly drips through to create the cold brew, resulting in only about 750 milliliters of coffee every six hours.
