About us

David & Michela here!

We own and operate The Early Bird PHX, a mobile coffee bar established 2018 in Phoenix, AZ. Our mission is to provide whatever sort of liquid libations you need to make your morning, night, or event happier. We believe in better ingredients, attention to detail, locally-sourced products, working (and playing) hard, and serving our community with integrity and positivity.
One morning we sat down over — you guessed it — a couple of coffees and discussed how starting a small business has been quite a wild journey. Not only do we feel like there is more to our story (behind-the-scenes, tips & tricks, etc.), but we’ve had the opportunity to meet many other small business owners across the country, and we want to explore and share how they also turned their passion into their purpose.

A COUPLE OF COFFEES SHOWCASES HOW ENTREPRENEURS WITHIN ARIZONA (AND BEYOND) ARE BRINGING VALUE TO THEIR COMMUNITIES AND THEIR OWN LIVES.

Our travels lead us to breathtaking destinations that leave us refreshed and inspired. As we travel, we seek out small-business to learn their stories that connect us to that place. BONUS – locals have the BEST recommendations! Where do I get a good cup of coffee? Anywhere to see live music on a Thursday? Locals have the answers and we’re going to share them with you.
And when we stay closer to home, we get to know the small businesses in our figurative backyard. The Phoenix area is packed with people doing cool sh*t and building businesses responsibly. We believe in community over competition and investing in where we live.
We are committed to supporting the small business economy wherever we are. Small choices (like seeking out a locally owned coffee shop versus *cough cough* Starbucks) make a significant impact on local economies. And, choosing local creates a more authentic experience!
We can’t wait to open up the conversation on all things small business ownership, near and far. Join us!
