Our Story

Since 2009, we have operated our small, pop up, independent mobile coffee van with a clear vision: to do it better and offer higher standards in presentation, execution and meeting clients' requirements. This includes well thought through event planning, logistics, client and customer service, barista skills, high quality equipment, product and ingredients that deliver a superior range of drinks. Being passionate, a bit geeky, taking care, being/sourcing ethical, organic, eco friendly and always retaining a strong sense of quirkiness and fun. Above all, we love what we do.

It is possible to deliver (virtually anywhere in the UK) a professional mobile barista hire, with an on-the-spot speciality coffee experience served directly to guests and consumers.

But it hasn’t stopped there. We constantly strive to develop, evolve and implement fresh ideas with solutions that meet clients’ and consumers requirements. It’s about sourcing quality equipment, product and ingredients, our own continuous training, knowledge gaining and working with like-minded people.

With the experience and expertise already gained in delivering and operating a high quality coffee for events in diversified types of work and environments, our clients appreciate our pro-active approach and getting involved in their brief. This means giving feedback, ideas and problem-solving solutions, in order to ensure their event runs as smoothly and successfully as possible and that their objectives are met.
