The Tuk Tuk
The Tuk Tuk is a specially adapted Italian Piaggio Ape. It runs on petrol or battery power and when going flat out in 4th gear, can reach the wind-in-the-hair speed of 30mph.
At that rate it would take us days to get to and from our events, so we tow the Tuk Tuk behind our Coffee Angels van. The Tuk Tuk has been converted to hold a top of the range Vibiemme coffee machine.
Italian by origin, but a fun addition to parties, events, corporate days and weddings across Northern Ireland!
