Strong, lightweight and collapsible.
If dealing with obnoxiously narrow doors, less-than-comfortable size elevators, and small trade show booths sounds oh-too-familiar, you'll understand why we're so stoked about our design. It was made with portability, collapsibility, and beautiful design in mind.
We've also done the hard work of researching the lightest and strongest hardwoods. Your back will thank us.
We even do a 'sag calculation'—a fancy term for making sure the tabletop will not make a smiley face over time under your particular load.
Good design is about taking things away, so we said good-bye to the whole metal framing structure. In case you wondered, we've retained its stability and strength, too.
Panels are now lighter and thinner and there are no gaps between them. We call it engineering witchcraft.
Real wood. Beautifully finished.
No material is as timeless and durable as real wood. No MDF or cheap veneers were used here.
We carefully select the finishing process highlighting the natural beauty of a particular kind of wood. It's also good at protecting it—we know you'll do real work on it. You tell us the style and colors you're after and we do our magic.
Not your average one-trick pony.
We know your needs and tastes are unique, so give you options. Customize dimensions, kinds of wood, finish, the tabletop thickness, logo, or even some more specific features, like installing electrical or plumbing equipment.
The features are optimized for a mobile set-up, like your pop-up espresso gig. All that's left is to book an event.
We get the way you roll.
Casters or legs? Match your style with plenty of options. Whichever your pick, they will look more like a piece of mid-century furniture and less like equipment from a commercial kitchen.
And yes, you guessed it, both casters and legs are easily detachable.
Unless you will keep your cart in a single location, you need something to keep it beautiful and shiny for years. You may try grandma's blankie or go with our custom, glove-fit heavy-weight champion (95 lbs./dozen) covers for less aggravating solution (and more professional looking).
For ultimate, protection (super helpful when shipping), we'll design a custom road case (you know, the cases musicians use on the road). Both can be customized with your branding.
Super easy to ship and assemble.
In many cases, the most economical way of getting it to you will be shipping it flat. And since it's so light, it may not require more expensive freight shipping. We partner with courteous drivers from services like Roadie® and uShip® to transport your new prized possession, fully insured (just in case).
Beyond the cart.
If you take your gig on the road, the coffee cart is just the beginning. You may need an equipment table to keep your batch brewer, kettles, or extra grinders. And of course, a side table for condiments. Perhaps a menu board, so your clients know what's brewing.
We make it easy to focus on your business and not figuring out the set-up. You'll have to filter your own water though.
We will hold your hand.
Who knew there would be so many things to think about—the right kinds of wood and finish, all the plumbing and electrical components, the fittings, hoses, wire gauges, and amperages. Fear not—we'll lend our expertise to help you avoid all the costly mistakes (like using wrong extension cords and almost burning a place down).
We eat our own dog food and there is a very good chance we understand your needs as we put it to use every day. We're here for you.
Q: I'm not sure what I need. Can you help?
A: Absolutely. This is one of the main reasons to work with us—we'll help you figure out what you need in your situation. We want you to start using your cart as soon as you get it, so we'll make sure the fittings match your espresso machine and you don't have to hunt for the right hose for the pitcher rinser. We made the cart for our catering business, so we have plenty of experience from the field.
Q: Where are your carts made?
A: They are 100% made in the USA and ship from Chicago, Illinois.
Q: I have a particular style in mind. Can you match it?
A: Most likely. During the discovery phase, we make sure we understand what look you're after and what colors you'd like. Based on that, we propose specific kind of wood and match the finish—the color, opacity, and sheen.
We like a good challenge, so if you have a specific design element in mind, let's talk—we'll do our best to make it happen!
Q: What is the frame made of?
A: Beginning with ver. 3.0, our carts are 100% frameless! This is the secret sauce of our design—the panels and the tabletop (almost) magically connect to each other. They are sturdy and collapse as easy as before. You'll be glad to know they are now ~60% lighter and ~80% thinner than the previous version.
Q: Can I see more pictures of your carts?
A: For sure! You can see some of our newest projects on Bēhance.
Q: I have a question you didn’t cover here.
A: Please, check out the rest of our FAQ section or contact us directly. We’ll be delighted to help.
