Coffee Truck Pic 5We took delivery of our new gull-wing coffee truck from Coffee Latino

this weekend.

The innovative design allows Caffe Carino to prepare great coffee for our customers from the rear of the vehicle, with walk up and view from both sides of the truck too.

We love our new truck. Although we haven’t had time to ‘wrap’ the truck and our service vehicle with our logo and image collage yet, the appeal of the unit is still apparent.

The lightness of the vehicle is counterbalanced by the design and engineering skill which goes into the build. It is easy to connect and tow for our coffee crew, but can still be driven into its night time storage unit under its own power.

For journeys to events at a greater distance the truck has a minimum kerb weight of 230 kg and a width of only 1,260mm making it easy to ramp onto a modestly sized trailer.

Charging the batteries is a simple one plug connection to the mains, a great improvement for those members of our crew old enough to remember industrial battery racks and early morning swap-outs.

Our first gull-wing unit is engineered with Fracino coffee machine and grinder, with extensivecoffee Machine Mobile pic bulkhead and roof meshed in powder coated black panels for hanging baskets and hooked displays.

 

 

 

 

The refrigerated draw immediately below the coffee machine can hold sixteen litres of fresh milk.

All in all, a great mobile solution, which offers ease of operation and real eye appeal for our customers.

Don’t forget you can contact the Caffe Carino team for all your mobile coffee needs, whether an event, private hire or a full corporate service occasion.

We are always happy to help.  Click the ‘towed unit’ image below to see our contact details…

An image of a coffee plant in bloomWe recently came across a great list on the web of the word for coffee in over sixty languages.

Only goes to show what a great drink coffee is and how pervasive it is in world culture.

Wikipedia describes coffee like this…

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted seeds, commonly called coffee beans, of the coffee plant. They are seeds of coffee cherries that grow on trees in over 70 countries, cultivated primarily in Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Africa. Green unroasted coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world.

Due to its caffeine content, coffee often has a stimulating effect on humans.

Today, coffee is the third most popular drink in the world, behind water and tea

We just love that last sentence.

Coffee plants are all members of the plant family Rubiaceae, of the order Gentianales. There are some 13,413 species in the world, it is reckoned.

The oldest fossil record of coffee plants go back some 48-49 million years.

Although one suspects that pre-historic man and woman did not enjoy their flavoursome get up and go cup in the morning from one of our stylish gull-wing coffee trucks.
