Trina Perez
Founder & Operator 
Buzzed Coffee Truck 

Trina, Buzzed Coffee Truck's founder and operator, has always had a passion for specialty coffee. She moved to Salt Lake's West Side and fell in love with her neighborhood and community. The only thing not to love was the complete lack of decent coffee within a convenient distance. During this time, she experimented with different brewing methods, ratios, and brew times to create the best cup of coffee rather than settle for gas station coffee. As she became more active in her community and met more of her neighbors, she realized she wasn't the only one yearning for a good cup of coffee in the neighborhood. The Rose Park community has been crying out for a specialty coffee shop for years.
