A mobile coffee shop on wheels, BikeCaffe is the brainchild of Will Shakesheff, an “obsessed coffee connoisseur” who loves great coffee and felt that big coffee chains were ruining the taste of his favorite beverage. After much trial and error, he sent the first BikeCaffe on its inaugural journey just outside London in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The unusual setup initially surprised customers but quickly won them over.
Though smaller than a brick and mortar coffee shop, each BikeCaffe is outfitted with a full range of equipment, allowing baristas to create the same made to order drinks as typical coffeehouses. With an Italian espresso lever machine, electric refrigerator, hand wash sink, interchangeable menu boards, and bamboo food display, among others, a BikeCaffe can serve up espressos, lattes, chai teas, teas, smoothies, and more.
Founded with the intention to give back to the world, BikeCaffe serves only 100 percent fair trade coffee and tea purchased from producers that work to preserve biodiversity and sustainability. BikeCaffes can be found biking and making drinks throughout England and the United States.
