You’re probably wondering what on earth else could be squeezed into our bubble? Correct – we are very low on space and have had to do some substantial systems planning and endless “drinks production under pressure” role-plays. Which brings me more or less up to date as I sit here after another long day, today involving some serious storage solutions. If I say so myself, The Coffee Gondola’s interior ergonomics are enough to turn the head of B&Q’s head home D.I.Y. manager. Our hand rail is now clad with perfectly selected hanging bathroom solutions; our home-made dog-bowl sink is expertly plumbed in, drawing minimal juice from the coffee pump to have a running tap and waste pipe, just hidden from the curious customer’s gaze; our window suction-bound IPad is set up in POS mode next to our makeshift docket collector, all ready to silently pass orders between cashier and barista …
But I mustn’t give the whole game away – very soon folks, you’ll be able to witness this all first hand! Our official launch at the Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Show in Battersea, London is only a couple of days away and we CANNOT WAIT to finally be selling some coffees and showing all you very patient friends what’s really been going on behind the facade of artisan coffee chatter and gondola jabbering.
The show is hoping for over 35 thousand visitors throughout it’s 4 days of live music, big air comps, alpine food tastings and ski-related retail en mass.
The only solely-coffee stand, placed directly in front of the visitor entrance – The Coffee Gondola – is hoping, simply, to get through alive.
Venturing to the furthest points of the UK’s Summer scene and Europe’s expansive Alps by Winter, we are primarily a large-scale event and festival outlet, but also accept bookings at private and corporate functions.
The gondola is a totally self-sufficient and mobile unit, which gives us the benefit of serving our drinks wherever you need them.
We can adapt our menu to suit you and the surroundings, from lazy morning latte’s to late night espresso martini’s – we have it covered.
