AUCKLAND'S BEST MOBILE COFFEE

Updated: Sep 7, 2021

WHO ORDERED THE FLAT WHITE?


Roll back 5 years ago and mobile coffee vendors all seemed to look quite similar. Whilst they served their purpose of delivering a much needed caffeine hit to those in need, it was all a little functional and lifeless. The mobile coffee scene in Auckland is booming and we are fortunate to have a new wave of bean roasting legends serving us across the city.


We feature 4 of the best from a stylish converted American delivery vehicle with on tap Nitro Cold Brew coffee and an Argentina man on a mission on a self-sustainable espresso bicycle. The team behind 'Valerie' were inspired by Amy Winehouse and a passion for really good coffee. If that is not enough for you then how about a Superhero themed mobile coffee chain with aspirations to be the best on the planet and beyond...

1. Good Karma Coffee


Good Karma got into coffee because like most of us they love everything about the dark stuff. Originally from Argentina, they had always drunk coffee back home and lots of it. However, when they moved to NZ they soon discovered a Kiwi coffee culture and style that was exciting, new and fresh.


Their truck is beautifully designed, classy, clean and simple. The fit-out from Custom Coachbuilding is just stunning. It is one of the best looking trucks around and perfect for your next event or wedding. Yes, that's right, they are a popular choice for weddings with a range of hot and cold brew coffee, raw treats, nibbles, canapes and lots more on offer. Now they also have a store at 22 Jellicoe St, Auckland (the new Auckland Fish market).


2. A Sweet Life


It all started with a love of coffee and a lack of coffee on Crystal's morning ferry ride. Fueled by the aroma of the beans and a vision of great coffee on the run, they bought a coffee cart. The team had a love of Amy Winehouse & the song Valerie and so with hard work & determination, they kicked off A Sweet Life in their cute little cart called Valerie.


When Crystal and Cory are not serving their delicious coffees and hand made sodas, they are busy running the awesome Norwest Food Collective - with brunchy events in...Norwest Auckland.


3. Fred Caravan


Fred is from the times when things were done simple and well. Following the same philosophy they are serving locally roasted beans on their shiny La Marzocco, using only the best ingredients great coffee, great food, as simple as that.
