You know what they say, the early bird gets the worm. At Early Bird Coffee, the early bird gets a horchata latte.
SAN ANTONIO – You may have heard of Early Bird Coffee in a story we covered last year. But things look a little different now, as the company has a brick-and-mortar store in Huebner Oaks.

The store has only been open for a month, but their loyal customer base has been injecting warmth into their new space.
Owners Syndi and Jamal Abed said they wanted to change the store for comfort, but also for other benefits.
“Now that everything is here, we don’t have to store things in different places,” says Sydni Abed. “I think it’s organized chaos at the end of the day, but it’s great to have everything here. With the trailer, we’re taking it home every day.”
But how hard is it to move everything in the trailer?
“I think it’s easier than opening the trailer. I think it’s a quicker transition,” Sydni said. “I think a lot of it has to do with the loyal customers we’ve built from the trailer. A lot of them are just really awesome loyal customers,” Jamal added.
Even though they have a new location, they still have some tried and true favorites like their horchata latte.
Speaking of favorites, here are their favorite things about their customers.
“I love hearing about their lives. I think that’s great. Over the past two years we’ve seen people have kids, start their own businesses, talk about buying a home, like we know a lot about these people,” Sidney said. “It’s unbelievable. So we have such a great relationship with these people.”
They also like to have more free time to spend with their children and family, the couple said. They don’t have free time while running the trailer.
Abed says the iconic trailer is living a second life somewhere in the world.
