    Gavin

    Urban Barista Espresso Bar was born in 2014 after Gavin (main bean) had been in the coffee industry for a decade co-owning a group of shops with branches in Gauteng and the Western Cape.

    During a short sabbatical and after some travelling and caffeine loaded research the dream of creating an authentic quality driven coffee experience in a compact mobile format started.

    With a deep love for Vespa scooters it was decided that the Piaggio Ape would be the perfect vehicle for packaging this dream. The first unit was completed late that year and the second followed soon after.

    With our vision and drive to grow the coffee culture in our community we will be expanding soon.
