WAH has been trading since September 2015, primarily to cater for the commuters of Leyton, East London. Our greatest loves are coffee, the outdoors, and people...so we count ourselves pretty lucky to have all three on a pretty regular basis.
Our tuk tuk (Fred) travelled all the way from India earlier that year to have every crevice kitted out by an excellent Devon based custom build team.
We then teamed up with AllPress to create the most delicious espresso based beverages (with the odd hot chocolate and tea thrown in for good measure of course).
We're completely self sufficient which means working at events, markets, in shops, or at weddings is completely hassle free.
Individual items for excellent humans. Original gift ideas or presents to yourself!
A few shots taken from our previous work at London markets, film sets, brand partnerships, and product launches. Our coffee cart is available for hire for any occassion!
Our tuk tuk (Fred) is available to hire for any type of event and given his size, he can fit into the most miniature spaces. He can run off mains or power himself, work in the dark, and even play music. We collect our own grey water, refrigerate our own milk and have our own supply of running water.
We have all of the important insurance bits and necessary paperwork meaning that you needn't worry about a thing.
You can even change the colour of our lids or have some personalised marshmallows to dip into your hot chocolate for a special occasion.
We cover most of London but with enough notice can travel far and wide.
Get in touch.
Alongside our residency in Leyton, we've been known to dabble in a few other affairs. Markets, weddings, outdoor cinemas, and venue catering to be a bit more specific.
Here's some links to our previous work and/or press pieces:
Our tuk tuk is a Piaggio Ape Xtra, imported all the way from India with top speeds of 30mph (but probably you'll get stuck behind us at around 15mph).
Our grinder is a Mazzer Super Jolly to ensure we can really get the greatest grind with the changeable weather conditions. We use a dual fuel Fracino to ensure that we can run off gas when not hooked up to a mains source out on the road.
We buy our coffee from Allpress, their Redchurch blend specifically. If you haven't heard of them, they are simply great.
Here's a bit of background info on how they go about sourcing and roasting their speciality coffee:
"Finding top-quality Arabica beans involves an on-going search, so we invest a lot of time looking for small farms, estates and co-ops that are sustainably managed with high standards of agricultural practice and specialise in high grade beans. We form direct relationships with these growers so our supply arrangements are made with people managing the farms.
To secure the continual quality and quantity we require and see how excellent coffee is brought to market we visit farmers, millers and exporters in the various coffee growing regions. At origin, there is always something new to learn about different farming methods, customs and the conditions influencing the production and sale of coffee.
During these trips we meet and often stay with the growers, see where their beans are grown, talk to the pickers and processers and spend time tasting the unique annual crops for flavour, body and aroma. Sharing conversation over a cupping, a meal or a walk around the coffee farm brings a friendly familiarity to these visits. Being amongst the communities also gives a firsthand look at how they are benefitting from above market prices they receive for their coffees.
This way of buying coffee is mutually rewarding and achieves our continual focus on selecting beans for outstanding flavour in the cup."
