Get a taste of Queen, Nirvana at Lucky Coffee in Asheville

ASHEVILLE – A North Carolina barista has upgraded from a horse trailer to open a brick-and-mortar coffee shop in South Asheville.

For several years, Savannah Logan honed her brewing skills and learned the business of coffee by working in shops in Wilmington. Her passion was grounded in the products as much as the human connections.

“I’ve always loved coffee shops. I’ve worked at them since I was 17 and I managed one for a few years,” said Logan, 22. “Growing up, I moved around a lot. I was homeschooled. That was the first place I felt like I had a regular group of friends. And I would see people who normally never would interact become friends or talk about a common interest. I felt like so many demographics that have nothing in common still have coffee in common.”

One year ago, she tried her luck as an entrepreneur and launched Lucky Coffee, a mobile coffee bar converted from a horse trailer complete with a pull-down bar, sink and refrigerator and powered by a generator. Logan has used it to serve customers at farmers and art markets, offices, sporting events and more in Wilmington.

This spring, Logan debuted Lucky Coffee’s first brick-and-mortar location at 2619 Sweeten Creek Road. The mobile coffee bar has helped prepare her for the new endeavor in her new home of Asheville, she said.

“I love it. It was a longtime dream and it’s so much fun,” Logan said of the mobile shop. “It’s a lot of work. It’s way different from being in (the coffee shop) because you have to be in the weather, set up and break down, and the generator, getting 20-pound bags of ice. But I still love it and it definitely prepared me for this even more than working at other shops.”
