De­liv­ered in style

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - By CAITLIN TILLER

CRAIG Mauger is not your av­er­age barista.

Mr Mauger serves his brew from the back of a 1955 Ford pickup truck and uses a hand pump to make his cof­fees.

The vintage cof­fee truck vis­ited the Western Sub­urbs Weekly of­fice last week to de­liver cup­cakes and cof­fees as part of Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group’s 30th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions.

Mr Mauger said he liked that Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group fo­cused on events hap­pen­ing nearby.

“The good thing about Com­mu­nity News­pa­pers is it’s one of the only ways of get­ting lo­cal news,” he said.

Mr Mauger said it took a lot of work to get his vintage truck into shape since he found it in Novem­ber last year but it had been pop­u­lar.

“It took me about a month to get the cof­fee just right,” he said.

“I come from a mar­ket­ing and advertising back­ground so I knew I needed to look for some­thing dif­fer­ent to stand out.”

Craig Mauger serves from his unique cof­fee truck, and (right) the ded­i­cated cup­cake de­liv­ery.
