These 1950s tea kettle-shaped tractors from Gevalia in Gävle, Sweden were real-life cartoons. The vehicles were promotional tools for Gevalia coffee, which is the most popular coffee roaster in Scandinavia. These trucks are so cute with their little spouts, I can't take it! Gevalia used to deliver coffee directly to customer's houses, like the milkman, but for people's caffeine needs. I would give anything to have this truck stop outside my house to give me my morning coffee.
"The 1950's pot-shaped tractors of Gevalia in Gävle, Sweden. This is sort of like the Oscar Meyer Weinermobile, but with coffee. The caffeinated car was a promotional vehicle for Gevalia Coffee in the 1950s.
Founded in Sweden in 1853, today, Gevalia is the largest coffee roaster in all of Scandinavia. It is a worldwide company, you can buy their coffee and k-cups at places like Walmart. But when the company first started, they sold their coffee directly to customers through home delivery. That's a concept that was way ahead of its time. Wouldn't it be great if the coffee truck stopped by your house every morning to hand you a steaming cup of Joe?"
