When did you establish your business or start working there? 

What’s your favourite coffee style and why?
Espresso in the morning, flat white later on. Espresso to really get the full richness and depth of flavour. A good flat white is a thing of alchemy - there’s something magical happening there.

Why are you passionate about coffee?
Our coffee van is on Portobello Promenade. We live two minutes away and like many locals we’ve been Prom strolling and beach walking regulars for years - firstly with the kids and now with the dog. It’s a Portobello tradition. Time and again we thought “what this stroll needs is a great coffee to go with it”.  And thus an idea was born.

Anything else?
We’re passionate about good coffee and good food - we don’t sell anything we don’t personally like. We get our beans from our favourite roasters, Artisan Roast, our tea from our favourite tea merchants, Eteaket, our cakes & pastries from our favourite bakery, The Manna House and our ice cream from our favourite ice cream producers, Di Rollo.
