So – a bit about Luigi and us – and some of our past experiences since 2013 – which have been extremely varied.
Paul and Ian are founders and proprietors of CoffeeBayMobile, partly comprising of a funky looking Piaggio Ape coffee van who we call Luigi. We have a background in retail coffee and to us Luigi has been a big part of our journey for the past six years. Every day we work with Luigi is as exciting as the first day we started and we are as passionate today about our offering as we were when we first started out. We can provide alternative set ups as required.
OUR RUGBY EXPERIENCE
We have completed 6 years of trading at Allianz Park, home of Saracens Rugby for all the home matches. We have also covered the Kid’s Festivals and Academy matches and Women’s Rugby. In addition we have been asked to work at other outside events held at Allianz Park which have included the Italian Olympic Games and the National Frisbee Championships, and 7’s and the City.
OUR FOOTBALL EXPERIENCE
Now in our second season working at Brentford FC at Griffin Park ahead of the opening of the new stadium.
OUR CONCERT EXPERIENCE
In June 2016 we were at Longleat for a major outdoor concert with Elton John and his band as part of the Safari Park’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. The Concert gathered an audience of 15,000 people. We repeated the experience in June 2017, in Peterborough.
OUR CAMDEN AND BARNET EXPERIENCE
Since we started our venture, we completed several weeks trading at Camden Lock and have covered events at Alexandra Palace, and have worked with Camden at the Jester Festival, The Queens Festival and the Bloomsbury Festival. We have worked with Castlehaven Community Centre who were trying to establish a new look in a square in Camden, as we continue to try to create a high presence in Camden, Barnet and local surroundings. We have attended all home matches for Saracens Rugby from 2013 to 2019.
OUR BRENTFORD AND EALING EXPERIENCE
Now in our second with Brentford FC.
Chiswick House Opera
OUR PRIDE EXPERIENCE
We have participated in London Pride on Saturday and Sunday in 2017 and 2018 and once again this year for UK Black Pride at Haggerston Park. Also this year with Bi Pride at The Round Chapel, Hackney.
OUR SECRET CINEMA EXPERIENCE
We completed a one month run with The Secret Cinema, an immersive screening of Back to The Future on The Olympic Park London, which was an exhilarating experience. We worked again with Secret Cinema on The Empire Strikes Back and completed the 100 performance run and look forward to working with Secret Cinema one day again.

We supply a varied menu of freshly roasted gourmet coffees served by professional Baristas.
Our most popular coffee is Italia Crème: a traditional Italian style espresso blend; hand roasted Mocha and Brazilian Arabica beans mixed with a small amount of robusta. Typically, Italian in style, produces a terrific crema when made as an espresso, cuts through milk beautifully, so great if served as a cappuccino, latte or flat white. Taste profile: An intense, robust & bold coffee with great body, chocolate, honey and almond tones.
Our customers love the coffee, they rave about its smoothness and the fun and quirkiness of the Ape.
In addition, we can also provide alcohol for shots in our coffee and our popular Mulled Wine – there are fine teas, Italian hot chocolate, iced coffee and smoothies (seasonal) and cold drinks and our famous homemade cookies and brownies and cupcakes! We can also supply gluten free and dairy free sugar free cakes upon request. Hot food options – flat breads and baguettes – are available too if this is a requirement. Anything else is possible too!
ADDITIONAL SET UP
We can supply additional set ups, another ape Mario and/or a bar structure if required.
All necessary insurances and certificates are held and in addition we are members of NCASS. The business is registered in Barnet.
I am attaching pictures of Luigi, (the Ape). He is very photogenic!
