Coffee express comes in chocolate wrapping
By SUE COULTON
Ms Cox's mobile coffee van is eye-catching in chocolate brown.
If you've felt like a gourmet coffee but couldn't leave work to get one, the solution could be at your door.
Tallangatta resident Ms Kristy Cox has started Espresso Mobile Cafe, a service which will visit industrial sites, corporate and construction sites on the Border from Monday to Friday.
On weekends, she will visit sporting events, shows, fetes and other social occasions.
Working out of her Mercedes Benz van, Ms Cox said she would be serving gourmet coffee, muffins, biscuits and cold drinks.
“We are part of a franchise and there are about 20 vans around Australia at the moment and there are about another 20 vans which will be operational in the near future,” Ms Cox said.
“My work station is from the rear of the van and so when the rear door lifts up, it works as a shelter and I serve from the back of the van, which is specially fitted out for my needs.”
Ms Cox said she had received barista specialist coffee making training and she felt sure people would find her drinks of the highest quality.
She said her van was eye-catching, painted in chocolate brown with the business logo on the sides.
Her route will take in Albury and Wodonga and once established, will visit the same areas each day so people can be guaranteed reliability.
“I am extremely excited to be introducing this type of business to the Albury-Wodonga region,” Ms Cox said.
“I am sure when people see my van, they will be extremely impressed, also with what we have to offer and the quality of our products.”
