Love coffee and quirky places? A Florida shiny silver trailer was transformed into a friendly, micro coffee shop that’s serving up steaming cups of Joe to guests.

JUPITER - When you walk into the 1971 Airstream Safari trailer at 312 Center Street, you’ll see these words inscribed in chalk on the door: "If you do everything with love, love will do everything for you!"


Take another step inside, and you’ll find a mini lounge, filled with deep blues and walls accented with Western red cedar wood straight out of the 1970s. Vintage Minolta cameras and small plants adorn the small counters. On the right there is a small booth with a wooden table, and on the left is a small kitchen, where you’ll find Johnathon "JP" Pezzino and his girlfriend, Sydney Jacobson, brewing coffee from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. every day.


For the Jupiter natives, making coffee in The Lokomotive is certainly a labor of love.


When regular customers walk in, the couple hugs them. They say how good it is to see them again and ask about their kids, their jobs.


But you won’t find any signs for the lounge in front of the trailer, which the couple bills as the first locally owned specialty shop in Jupiter.


"We kind of wanted people to stumble upon it because we’re really confident in our product," Pezzino said.


So, how did a shiny silver trailer become a micro coffee shop?


Pezzino, 30, and Jacobson, 24, met five years ago through mutual friends and have been inseparable since, but their Lokomotive journey began when they taught themselves how to brew coffee and began making drinks for friends in their home.


"There would be stuff all over the place," Jacobson said.


After buying the Airstream at the end of last year and scratching their heads for a bit, Pezzino and his father, Vincent, who both have backgrounds in construction, began transforming the trailer in January, which would be a five-month process.


"We liked the idea of it, and it just seems like nothing is unattainable," Pezzino said.


Pezzino and Jacobson began giving out free coffee in early September in exchange for donations to Bahamians affected by Hurricane Dorian, and in just two weeks they raised $2,006, which will most likely go to Big Dog Ranch Rescue in West Palm Beach, Pezzino said. The coffee-selling officially began Sept. 23.


Seven days a week, Pezzino and Jacobson grind and pour away, like chemists in a laboratory, doing a sort of dance while never getting in each other’s way.


"They bring happy to everybody," said Sandra Pezzino, JP’s mother, who comes in every morning for a coffee.


For customers who want fresh air, a Balinese table and chairs made from roots sit outside the trailer, and there is a deck that was installed just last week. A blue 1970s Chevy Trailblazer sits to the right of the trailer that is just begging for Instagram opportunities.


"The space is constantly evolving," he said.


On the menu are classic coffee drinks and some seasonal favorites, including a mocha latte that ended up on the menu by popular demand. However, these drinks won’t have artificial sweeteners and syrups. The pumpkin latte isn’t like Starbucks’ famous beverage; this one will have a hint of the fall favorite squash and an earthy taste.


The Lokomotive showcases another rarity in the coffee shop world: No one is scrolling through a cellphone, and everyone is talking to each other.


"I can’t believe the connections," Jacobson said. "People leave here with each other’s numbers."


She added that people always leave the Lokomotive feeling uplifted.


"Our door handle only goes up from the inside," she said. "So we say that you can only leave if you go up."


For the foreseeable future, the Lokomotive will remain in the trailer, but Pezzino hopes it will expand into the Sims House. The couple will also be planning nighttime events, including a Halloween costume contest.
