Coffee Cart Hire

Coffee catering at your event! We have coffee machines, coffee carts and a coffee trailer to suit indoor and outdoor events. We will organise your booking with ease, from contacting us to discuss your event needs to the event day. Our clients always compliment how easy and smooth our services are. We love to make it stress free for our clients. We can assist in organising our barista coffee service with the venue.

Our coffee catering service is all inclusive. It includes barista, supplies and coffee cart / coffee trailer / coffee machine to serve your guests with any cafe style drinks such as coffees (i.e. latte, flat white), hot chocolates, Mochas, chai lattes and a variety of quality teas. Our barista is professional and friendly, ensuring your guests will be well catered for.

Violet Café will come to you anywhere in Melbourne, Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat, Phillip Island, Mornington Peninsula & other regional Victoria for a corporate event, private function or public event. Events can be conferences, trade shows, product launches, corporate functions, festivals, private parties, weddings, engagements, birthdays, school fetes and sports events. Our coffee carts can be set up indoor or outdoor.

For coffee cart hire, we usually use our standard coffee cart (2-group coffee machine). Small coffee cart (single group coffee machine) will be used for events with restricted access to the venue (i.e. steep slope, small venue space), residential venue, parking height restriction (less than 2.4 m height clearance for our trailer) or only a single parking space is available.

For coffee machine hire without a cart, we need custom built coffee bench at your trade show or conference. This look is preferred for a seamless set up.

If your stand does not have a customised bench, we can bring our coffee cart instead. We have catered for conferences, exhibitions and trade shows. Having a coffee service at your stand brings the crowd to you, as attendees usually stays to chat while enjoying their coffee, teas and other beverages we provide.

We also have a coffee trailer for outdoor events and food trucks events. If you are after a coffee van, coffee trailer hire is a great choice as it can cater from small to large events.

All events are different. We provide a customised package to suit your event. Fill in your event details to get a quote.
