Justin Valdez, co-owner of the Inspira Coffee truck with his wife, Corinna Valdez, channels his passion for coffee into his mobile business based in the Webster area.

Justin said he was “bit by the coffee bug” when he worked at Pearland Coffee Roasters. Looking to start his own business, he believed his idea for a mobile coffee shop would be more in reach financially for him and unique enough to draw customers in.

“I wanted to bring a better cup just to my area,” Justin said. “[Craft coffee] options really aren’t available in suburban areas. ... We need more options, you know, for the rest of us, not in the Heights or Montrose or Midtown.”

Justin said he believes some high-end coffee shops need to “get with the times,” citing the COVID-19 pandemic shifting fine dining restaurants to utilizing takeout and curbside options. He said this was partly the inspiration for his idea to take craft coffee on the road.

The shop, a repurposed old FedEx delivery truck opened March 2021, attempts to capture the atmosphere of a rustic coffee shop while being loaded up with a Nuova Simonelli espresso machine for handcrafting americanos, lattes, cappuccinos, other espresso-based drinks and house-made syrups. Valdez said he sources coffee beans from District Roasters, which sends beans the day they are roasted.

“If you have something that’s really fresh, I think you’d be able to tell a huge difference in what you’re drinking, and that’s something we wanted to do,” Justin said.

Justin said the success of the coffee truck inspired him to seek opening a stationery shop under the Inspira name. He said if he were to open a shop, he would consider Webster a good opportunity due to the relationships he has built with locals over the 18 months of being open in the area, attending pop-up events and partnering with local businesses.

“I’ve been talking to business owners and property owners just trying to get some insight because this is my first time running a business—everything’s new,” Justin said.
