"Thanks Matt, Some good points there, I guess it might also be a case of how many clients they are expecting, I was speaking with another mobile barista just today who charges a $130 fee for the first 30 cups then its $4.50 per regular size cup…"

"Hi Alan, A user-pays system could (would I would say) end up being a money-loser for you. You are right in thinking that a flat rate is the way to go. Corporates have more than $120 x 2 to spend if they want professionalism and the option for…"

Hi, hope alls well Just a question guys, running my own mobile coffee van, Ive been asked to give a price on attending a business function for 2 hours 7 - 9am. They also asked if I would prefer to do a "User pay" system then I just give them the bill at the end. [would be using generator as no power available] I think I would prefer to go with a set price for example $120 per hour to cover myself... I could easily go with user pays and only sell say 25 - 30 cups. Just wondering if any others…See More

"Hi Alan I find,the following formula seems to cover most customers 1shot small,double shot regular,triple shot large(although most of my customers stick with a double),this of coarse depends on your choice of beans/blend ie mild strong etc.70/80…"

Matthew Gee replied to Alan's discussion Coffee Mileage & Shots
"Hi Alan, You've hit the nail on the head with the 20ml ristretto shot being suitable for a weak coffee and a double ristretto being suitable for a 12oz cup. It makes sense given that a 30ml shot is the norm for an 8oz cup and a double 30ml…"

Coffee Mileage & Shots

Hi Guys, Newby here, get my van in 2 weeks and in the process of stocking up... Hope its not a silly question, but I was wondering approximately how many 30ml pours (shots) you would you expect to get from 1kg of coffee I was also curious to know something about shots... I note that some places give you a double shot with 12oz regular cup,(say for a takeaway) while others only give a single...(maybe they are stingey...lol) Anyway I thought by having one of the machine buttons set on a 20 ml…See More
