Ape Coffee Events (previous Ape About Coffee) began in 2012 with a mobile coffee cart – a converted Piaggio Ape all the way from Italy. Our company name was inspired by this cute little 3 wheeler, which had been lovingly adapted and featured a vintage Lever espresso machine.
Throughout 2012 and 2013 we traded at a variety of events in Bristol and around the South West. These included See No Evil, Upfest, Redland May Fair and Gloucester Quays Food Festival – and started a regular pitch at the Whiteladies Road Farmers Market.
In 2014, the Ape van found a new home in the Welsh Brecon Beacons. However, Ape Coffee Events continued to grow with its focus moving more towards providing espresso bars for events and workplaces. Our values remain unchanged and our mission is to provide people with excellent coffee and great customer service.
