Attention espresso-addicts: if you find the Wandering Man pop-up across Brisbane, you will be satisfied with some quality morning grind.
What started as a markets’ coffee cart 12 months ago, has been transformed into the Wandering Man portable coffee solution, providing café-quality coffee to events across Brisbane.
Jon Laker, owner of Wandering Man Espresso (WME), has brought experience from Fix Caffeine Consultants and DiBella Coffee to the business.
“WME was started to fulfil requests from customers to facilitate events with a professional café feel and a speciality coffee understanding,” says Laker.
“From our branding and look of our carts to the furniture we use, we have tried to give WME an urban café feel and stay away from the stock look of a coffee cart.”
Wandering Man believes in the two cup philosophy: the first cup creates interest and the second cup brings the customer back.
So far you can find Wandering Man at the Northey Street Organic Farmers’ Markets, Brisbane City Child Care on Astor Terrace, Porsche Sports Driving School and Trafalgar Lane Development on Wellington Road – however don’t expect to put a face to the name.
Laker says the Wandering Man is heard but never seen, because the customer and their coffee is most important.
“As you will see in our photos, neither I nor our staff appear in the photo unless they are filtered, sort of like the faceless man.”
“When you arrive at WME, it is a simple meet and greet, and the next thing you know you have a coffee in your hand.”
A growing number of event companies and hotels in the Brisbane area are also opting for WME for their coffee catering.
