A group of Swedish researchers have developed a mobile coffee shop operated on a bicycle. Called Wheely’s, the bicycle café offers eco-friendly cups of joe and it's already being dubbed ''the world's smallest coffee shop."

The idea behind Wheely's is simple: offer quality coffee that doesn't cost an arm and a leg while having zero negative impact on the planet. It's all the brainchild of researchers from the Nordic Society for Invention and Discovery who tested the bicycle café in the Swedish university town of Lund.

Currently, the creators of Wheely's are hoping to spread the bicycle cafe to major cities across the world. Bikes costs around $3,000 and are equipped with solar panels and everything you need to make coffee. Owners have the potential of making anywhere from $100 to $300 during peak hours.

Bicycles have already been successful in churning ice cream and offering traveling bars so coffee is a natural step in the pedal revolution. Check out the video below to see the Wheely's Café in action:
