The UK Coffee market was valued at ?4.1Billion in September 2008, with an annual growth of 7.2% since 2005. The market is expected to expand further to reach ?5 Billion by 2013. The Industry challenge is to provide premium coffee quality, a highly personalised service, and to build long lasting relationships with customers. As more people drink better quality coffee they start to demand the same quality product out and about or during their daily commute. With consumers becoming increasingly knowledgeable about ethical products, there is a strong trend to the growing interest in the origins of products. Research shows that 80% of people would be more likely to choose a particular coffee vendor if it offered ethical coffee. Surprisingly the consumers in the UK are also willing to pay an average of 14p more per cup to ensure their coffee is ethical. With an average of 196 cups sold per day of coffee the most popular drinks sold are lattes and cappuccinos, accounting for 75% of the market.

To be able to reach potential customers in non-traditional loctions a quality driven, ethicaly focused mobile coffee vending approach is needed. Gone are the days when an offering of warm instant coffee in a cardboard cup will suffice when waiting for a train at 7am!

We Manufacture and fully convert brand new 09 model auto rickshaws into Mobile coffee Carts. The vehicles have a 200cc 4 stroke LPG/Petrol engine that also runs the coffee machine installed in the rear. The vehicles are totally road legal in the UK and can achieve speeds up to 40 mph. Due to the fact that the vehicles run on LPG, not only do the emissions comply with Euro 2 emission criteria, the operators can pull into a petrol station, fill with LPG from the pump, and run the entire machine without any further need for a separate fuel supply. No loose Gas bottles rolling around in the back of the van!

We have sourced all our coffee beans directly from roasters. The coffee beans are not only fairtrade but, are also organic and rain forest alliance certified. All the cookies, cakes, biscuits and muffin loaves offered with the coffee are organically grown. Furthermore a contribution to the coffee kid's charity is made every time we restock our shelves. This means that the franchisees are also indirectly supporting a worthy cause via the sale of consumables.
