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.
