Getting a decent cup of coffee when you’re out on the road or waiting on some small commuter station can be difficult. One former lawyer in West Yorkshire got so fed-up by the lack of latte that she gave up her profession to do something about it. Barrister turned barista, Jocelyn Robinson, has now set up Go-Go Gaggia, a coffee shop with a difference: it operates from the back of a two-seater Smart car.
Robsinson took the concept to Caffe Shop a coffee specialist based in Ellend, Halifax and Managing director Raj Beadle was bowled over: “I loved the idea of taking good quality Italian coffee to the commuter on the streets of West Yorkshire. The problem was getting everything to fit - we needed a compact coffee machine and a compact system that would fit into this compact car.”
The answer - a Gaggia GD2 Compact which though small can dispense up to four espresso shots at once
“Originally it was all about hitting the train stations, but we’ve already had several businesses ask us to come to them on a regular basis,” says Robinson. “Plus, the car being so small, it’s easy to bring great coffee to just about any event – football matches, street parties, you name it.
I need one at my local station - just as well franchises are being planned.
