RAYNHAM — An old 1958 Fan trailer has become a bubbling coffee business serving local brews and house-made flavored syrups.
It all happened when one 23-year-old Raynham woman found joy in enjoying a fresh cup of coffee and the homemade syrups she had created during the pandemic.
From there, the business, New Creation Coffee, was “born,” and Liz Gummow hasn’t looked back. She spent over $30,000 gutting and revamping the entire trailer with the help of friends, family and her fiancé.
“During COVID, I experimented with making syrups like lavender and incorporated it into lemonade, and I kept going. I tried different flavors for coffee, like gingerbread and maple cinnamon syrup. They are honestly so delicious and pair well with our coffee,” Gummow said.

Beans from a Bridgewater roaster
The barista uses a commercial-grade espresso machine and coffee beans from a Bridgewater-based roaster, giving it a unique flavor.
The owner says her coffee is “incomparable” to large chain coffee shops like by quality alone.
Working with the community is important for the small business.
“I’m community-driven and wanted to deliver a perfect cup of coffee. People in Massachusetts are so stuck on Dunkin’ and Starbucks, but there’s a great coffee waiting for you from local coffee shops in the area,” Gummow said.
The business owner always had an entrepreneurial mindset and believed God would reveal something unique to her, she said.
Gummow named the business after a Bible verse, Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come.”
Sharing her thoughts on religion is something she loves to do, but she doesn’t force it on anyone.
