|Coffee from a Tin Can?|

I think I’ve just come across THE best looking coffee truck – and it hails from right here in Bristol.
And how did I find these tin can coffee shenanigans? It was a gloriously sunny Autumn morning, when I headed out with Whiskey (he’s my dog, before you come to the wrong conclusion) over to Oldbury Court Estate. It’s a rambling Grade II listed park in NE Bristol, just kinda off the Fishponds Road.I'd heard there was a coffee truck who’d been given the go-ahead to set up shop because the local café had gone bust.
Right next to a 'more than decent' kid’s play area, was parked the most beautifully restored Citreon HY van – one of those old fashioned ones you see in old French art house movies.
And at the helm, was Adam, who was serving a full range of directly traded top-notch coffees (courtesy of Has Bean Coffee).
Cappuccino, latte, americano & proper hot chocolate were all on the menu.
There were also apple and cinnamon muffins, chocolate brownies & other delights which Adam sources from Bar Cake, a local bakery from down the road in Kingswood.
Adam says he’s not an expert baker himself and is pleased to be able to support another local business. He does make his own seasonal soups and on the menu for the day was a velvety butternut squash with warming chilli and ginger. YUUUMMMM. Tin Can Coffee will be serving the local community every day until next March or so, so pop down to support this independent coffee man.
The Tin Can website is still being worked on at the moment, but I persuaded Adam to hit Twitter with a vengeance. He can now be found @tincanevents and on Facebook where he’ll keep you posted of his movements and menus.
