Three years ago I never dreamed I’d be hitting the byways bringing flat whites and millionaire’s shortbread to country fairs and school sports days. But when the opportunity came up, I jumped at it, as it suited my love of the open road, meeting people, and going to parties. Now I get invited everywhere, as long as I bring my Tuk Tuk.
A friend started the business, but when other commitments took over, I was asked if I might be interested. I didn’t hesitate for a second. Zero experience? No clue? No problem. I went with my instinct and spirit of adventure.
Having adopted Coffee Angels complete with Tuk Tuk, I needed a proper immersion in the world of coffee. So I learned from the masters, taking a barista course with Johnson’s Coffee, Lisburn.
After many ups and downs and lessons learned that first year, I wanted to put my own personality on the business with a rebrand. I have to thank a good friend for the fantastic new design; it’s friends and family you rely on when starting up a new venture. The eye-catching makeover has given Coffee Angels a real boost.
Now we’re going to new places and making loads of new contacts, fans and friends, all thanks to the excellent coffee and my quirky Tuk Tuk.
This year I added a gazebo, branded to the hilt, so that Coffee Angels can be part of even more events…and is even easier to spot.
