Mighty MoJo Coffee Company rolls into town (Tyndall) most generally two days a week for all the specialty drink enthusiasts to grab a wake-up morning drink or a pick-me-up afternoon drink. You can find the truck parked on the east side of Cahoy’s General Store on Main Street. The coffee truck servers offer high quality coffee, specialty drinks and other fun specials as well as features goods from other local businesses such as pastry items and goodies. September will be the fourth month of business.
The menu does not only attract coffee drinkers who enjoy the espresso options, but there are also Mo Than Coffee options such as energy drinks, teas, hot chocolate, etc. for those individuals who would like a drink without espresso.
Operated by Cahoy’s General Store, Mighty MoJo Coffee Co. is a full-service coffee shop on wheels. The truck travels to Bonesteel, Lake Andes and Tyndall in South Dakota and Spencer in Nebraska. As it says right on the truck, according to Trisha Cahoy, we have a Mighty Mission “bringing happiness” by changing the world one cup at a time! For each cup sold, 10 cents is donated locally.
Just a few weeks before opening Mighty MoJo Coffee Co., Trisha’s dad passed away. It was a sudden and horrific loss to the family. As she navigates life without him, Trisha is reminded of the legacy he lived. Work hard, but also make time for fun. One of her Dad’s favorite things to do was go fishing. All seasons! It didn’t matter if he was alone or if he had family or friends on the boat with him. He was definitely in his happy place on the Missouri River with a fishing rod in hand. Fishing brought him so much joy. Sure, catching the big ones were fun, but he truly enjoyed the peace and simplicity that fishing brings.
In honor of her Dad, Roger Witt, Trisha donated $400 to Bon Homme BASS to be used at the annual Bon Homme Youth Fishing Tournament. Trisha’s hope is that kids fishing in the youth tournament next year find their love and joy in holding a fishing pole and reeling in a big catch. The team of Mighty MoJo Coffee Co. looks forward to more donations to different groups in the future.
Specialty drinkers can watch the Mighty MoJo Coffee Co.’s Facebook page at the beginning of each week to see when the truck will be rolling into your town. Check out the complete menu on their Facebook page.
