Joe’s Vintage Coffee Van sells delicious coffee and fine tea from a classic French vintage Citroen H van. We also offer a very tasty range of locally homemade cakes and snacks.
We drank an awful lot of coffee while we were trying to find the right supplier. The blend had to be perfect. And we wanted it to be Fairtrade, so the people who grew it could earn a living at the same time as we did. But we also needed our coffee to be local.
We eventually settled on Smiths Coffee Co, who are supplying us with Organic Fairtrade Dark Italian Blend from the Natural Coffee Co. It was a Gold Award Winner in the Great Taste Awards, 2006, and it’s a blend of South American and Indonesian beans, roasted to create a heavy, strong flavour with a good ‘bite’ and a smooth aftertaste. It makes a perfect espresso, a relaxing latte and a thrilling cappuccino, not to mention a very superior Americano. (Or as we used to call it ‘cup of coffee’.)
