Coffee cart




And here is a picture of the lovely wee beastie. It comes with a trailer in case you were imagining us towing it along behind the car on those itty bitty wee wheels.

"De Cup"

"Kofi And Naan" (if selling Indian treats too?

"C.U.P" (if combining your ability to perform Civil union Partnership ceremonies with espressing coffee?)

Martha said...

I'm liking De Cup, and what about my ability to express milk? D Cup seems to sum it all up really.

I just love the term 'express milk' so much I would almost become a milkman in order to use it on a sign.
PS Hi Marth, it's Mitch! I cannae resist a bloody good pun.

How about Macchiato or some other short coffee descriptor?

Or something with the word perk in it. Perk n Park. perk-u-later. oh god i can't stop (this is my last one i promise).
oh no there's more:
"fine grind" (one for the baristas)
"cremaster" (if you like coffee AND Matthew Barney or whatever his name is)
"steam WANDa"
"harland globetrotters" (makes no sense. stop now)

Brena said...

Not sounding as groovy as all the above but keeping it simple is often the best way. Try using the major benefit you offer you customers. What makes your coffee/service unique? Why should a potential customer choose your coffee/service over somewhere else? Focus on the benefits...

Martha said...

Mitch my darling! Welcome to Wanda. Keep the suggestions coming - I'm loving it. ALthough, who the hell is Matthew Barney? One of those young talents or something?

And Brena, your sound advice has been taken on board. Could only come up with The Pusher Van at the moment - must get over the addicting the masses concept.

Alan said...

Crackhouse? Or, if you are of Oirish extraction how about "Craic"? Kind of plays on the social aspects as well as the addictive aspect.

I thought Mr Reasonable's Porn Star Bucks quite, er, interesting.

"Cremaster" a little edgy, could alter to "crema star" to soften it a bit but still keep the joke intact.

Martha said...

My coffee pusher friend (hi Meg) drew up a business proposal for my business Porn Star Bucks.

I am of Oirish extraction (who isn't) but that Jimioen (or however the hell it was spelled) has cornered the market on the craic - plus I'm kinda thinking that people should be able to pronounce it. Now, Crema Star I like.

Martha said...

I've just looked up Matthew Barney and shown myself to be a total bogan non-elitist (which I knew anyway).

Rosiemunda said...

please don't call it anything pun-ish (har get the pun?) seriously I think a name that is non-pun non-coffee related word is much better like the push van.

maybe you should make breast milk latte? you could call it bra-te, ha! Don't judge me, I have the breast intentions, ha!

Barry said...

I agree - when you go with a pun, you can so often miss the mark just a bit and sound a bit lame to some. No matter how smart, after a few times, a pun gets old. I actually like what a couple of local cafes have done: one has gone real basic, and called itself fluid. Another has gone abstract and called itself rhubarb.

ben.run said...

Oh god, I just so would not buy coffee (or any drink) from anywhere with concept of breast milk in the title!

Ben.

Martha said...

Likewise!

Anonymous said...

you HAVE to name it something that is funny for about five minutes and gets progressively less funny as time goes on. don't fear the pun.
I like pornstarbucks (not family-friendly though), the pusher van (ditto on PG rating?) and de cup.
or ... (been saving this one up) ... AUTOBEAN!!! like AUTOBAHN, geddit????

actually crema star is a really good one, and I'm being serious now.
(ps: it's mitch again)

Martha said...

I've always thought crema sounds too much like smegma. I giggle when people talk about it.

(hi Mitch, again!) - hey would I have seen Phoebe Taptiklis walking along my street?

Jessie said...

Because I'm champion of the generic "Yeah nah yeah", I suggest you smarten it up and call the cart "Yes No Yes". It's also a nod to that dozy character on 'The Vicar of Dibley' :)

Anonymous said...

or "yeah but nah"!!
or 'kin oats!'
i haven't seen phoebe in years, last i heard she was in wellington though so you may have spotted correctly.
just looked at the cart pic you put up, nice la marzocco marth! (sp?).
mitch

Alan said...

Rosiemunda: isn't a breast milk latté more properly called an expresso?

(At least that's what comes to mind whenever I see that proudly displayed on the menu...)

Martha said...

I believe you're right Alan, and we've all been thinking the sign writers were cretins all these years. In fact we could've been drinking mothers' finest.
