October 21, 2018

So, you’ve decided to hire a mobile coffee van for an upcoming event. Making the decision to choose coffee van hire is the easy part, but deciding who to hire from is a completely different situation. Luckily, we’ve compiled a few factors that you should look out for:


Good Coffee

There’s no point hiring a coffee van if you can’t be sure that they supply great coffee. Before you even think about grinding of beans or pumping hot water, make sure you’re dealing with a quality product.

For example, all the beans at Xpresso Coffee are sourced from a specialty coffee roaster in Australia. Our supplier sources premium pure green beans from all over the world and use a bespoke system of roasting and blending. You can rest ensured that the baristas in our Xpresso Mobile Café vans will be serving up a top-notch brew.


Sustainably Sourced

For the sake of the planet, it’s important that cups are biodegradable and coffee is ethically sourced. More than ever, people are taking the extra effort of making sure they make ethical consumer choices. When you’re looking into mobile coffee van hire, make sure you think about it, too. It’s not just the planet you’re looking out for; it’s also the people at your event.


Keep an Eye on the Cost

When you’re drawing up a plan for a coffee van, you’ve got to be sure that the price is right. Take your time, do your research, and get a quote for what you’re likely to pay. There’s a good chance that it’ll be more affordable than you think.


Expertly Trained Baristas

It’s one thing to have access to great, sustainably sourced coffee for a fantastic price, but it won’t mean anything if the barista isn’t trained. Make sure you don’t end up with slow, shoddy work behind the expresso machine. You wouldn’t want heaps of people waiting around for what turns out to be wretched coffee! Pick a coffee van company that trains their baristas properly.


Don’t Forget the Van!

Coffee van hire isn’t just about the coffee; it’s also about the presentation. Anybody can make coffee with some dirty equipment in the back of a beat-up truck, but there’s no guarantee that it’ll impress your guests or allow the barista to be able serve customers! When you invest in an Xpresso Mobile Café, you’ll be provided with a premium 3-seater Mercedes Benz Vito van, equipped with a sliding door and an easy-to-open backdoor that allows access to your brewing station. Plus, you’ll be provided with 20kg of coffee beans and 100+ sundry items to help you serve great tasting coffee!
