Delivered in style
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.”
