Pedal-powered mobile espresso bar

A mobile espresso bar dubbed Velopresso is set to hit the road this year. This espresso bar, however, operates solely on pedal power, with the merchant cycling to each destination.


“Velopresso is an innovative coffee vending trike for true off-grid selling of quality espresso on city streets, at trade fairs, events and in parks, etc.,” Velopresso says on its website.


“Designed from the ground up around a custom rear-steer tricycle, a unique pedal-driven grinder, and a robust gas-fired lever espresso machine, Velopresso is a celebratory fusion of human power, sensory pleasures and technology – old tech with hi-tech, bicycles and coffee, their engineering and aesthetics.


“The result is a unique hybrid machine with a compact footprint and near-silent, low carbon operation – fine coffee, no electricity, no motors, no noise!”


Why stop at coffee? Surely other food and beverage items could be sold from a pedal-powered platform?
