In Kyiv, if it moves it can (and probably will) sell coffee.


Kyiv’s growing coffee obsession has been taken to a whole new level with the arrival of coffee buses.

The city’s coffee cars took-off in a big way in 2011 and now, wherever there are people, you will can find one. As cars, most of them look decidedly unroadworthy, but the do make a good latte.  In 2013 the coffee cars were joined by the ludicrous (but popular) pink coffee snails, which are possibly the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen – even by Ukrainian standards.

Now, this huge fleet of motorised coffee kiosks has been bolstered by a substantial number of large coffee buses. If this trend continues, I wouldn’t be surprised to return in three months and find a bean-filled Antanov pumping cappuccinos out onto Kreshatink.

First they came by car...

First they came by car…

Then these weirdly wonderful 'creatures' arrived.

...and now look!! (and I know we're famous for Red buses, but it should be a TEA bus). Where will is end??

…and now look, we have buses!!  Where will this end? Coffee tractors? Coffee Trucks? or. maybe…

This is Ukraine, it could happen... anyone for a jet-fulled latte macchiato?

Coffee Antanovs??!  …this is Ukraine, anything can happen.  Anyone for a jet-powered latte macchiato?
