The Ford Transit Connect: Toy-car cute.

Though he admitted to getting a call from Rec and Park earlier this week, Blue Bottle's James Freeman said any talk of pushcart sales at S.F. parks was preliminary. Other reports suggested that Rec and Park's selection committee had pegged Blue Bottle (along with La Cocina) for cart sales in Dolores Park. Despite declining to talk about specific locales, Freeman did tell us that, if Blue Bottle can work out the details, he'd like to turn a Euro minivan into a mobile coffee kiosk for park sales. Specifically, Freeman has a big old crush on the Ford Transit Connect. “It's so cute you want to put it in your pocket,” he said. Freeman meets with Rec and Park next week to hash out details. Why not just set up a farmers' market style stall in, say, Dolores? “I don't like doing stuff over again,” Freeman said.
