Austin Schwartz this summer began driving a 1968 school bus around Anchorage, outfitted with the original seats and paint plus a gourmet coffee bar. He specializes in pour-over coffee, and he roasts the beans inside the bus. Throughout summer, Schwartz will bring his Uncle Leroy's Coffee bus to the APU Farmer's Market, Spenard Food Truck Carnival, Muldoon Farmers Market and other locations in Anchorage. The bus is named after his dog, but Schwartz has created a back story for who he thinks Uncle Leroy is, a narrative that complements his business.
