How does iced horchata with espresso sound? Or coffee with CBD oil? Find these specialities at local coffee trucks.

Food trucks have taken a hold of the Valley food scene, giving small-business owners the chance to share their creations with people across the state without the need for a brick-and-mortar store. 

It also gives foodies a way to try out things they’ve never had before when a new food truck comes to their neighborhood or part of town. 

But some trucks specialize in something other than food: coffee. 

From Avondale to Chandler, here are nine mobile coffee bars where Valley residents can get their caffeine fix:
