North Bend’s newest coffee hut opened July 8
August 8, 2012
A dream of owning a drive-thru coffee hut has finally materialized for Tessa and Bryan Wyrsch.
Bryan bought the Shell gas station, on the corner of Bendigo Boulevard and Mount Si Boulevard, from his father in 2001 and the couple had always toyed with the idea of opening a drive-thru coffee stand at that corner, Tessa said.
The current economic downturn is what prompted the two to pursue the dream.
Tessa is a real estate agent and Bryan is in the oil and gas business.
“Those are the two industries making the most headlines right now,” she said. “So the timing was right.”
Tessa is putting her real estate career on the back burner while she gets the business up and running.
Wanted Espresso, which opened July 8, employs six workers.
In addition to espresso drinks, Tessa said the hut serves blender drinks, Italian sodas and baked goods from local vendors like MyCakes and Steve’s Doughnuts.
