Sapp Bros. Pot of Coffee Sign

Water tower coffee pot no longer there. Don't know when it was removed or if it's coming back. Has 1950s era looking neon sign.

[R Mayer, 10/16/2014]

Wondering if that initial report was just a sign rather than a water tower like Sapp Bros. has in a few other locations...

Coffee Pot sign.

Giant Coffee Pot Sign

An old advertisement for a restaurant. Off highway 80 West toward Des Moines.

[Melissa Schuster, 08/13/2010]

Unfortunately, over time the Sapp Brothers' promotional coffee pot water towers are being replaced with flat -- albeit large -- coffee pot signs.

World's Largest Pot of Coffee

Sapp Bros truck stop restaurant. Just N of I-80, just W of I-39. Can be seen from I-80.
