Mobile Coffee Trikes |Pop-Up Brew Bars
Customised vintage coffee trikes and bars. Bringing mobile coffee to the streets of Cardiff, and events throughout the UK.
Handlebar Barista is a mobile coffee and catering company based in Cardiff.
The company was founded in 2015 to combine a love of two things: coffee and cycling. But we offer so much more. Our fleet of speciality vehicles includes 2 vintage pedal-powered coffee trikes, an electric coffee tuk-tuk, and a converted horse-box bar that can be used to serve cocktails (gin and rum are our speciality!), ice creams, craft beers and more.
These are available to hire for events of all kinds throughout the UK, and their eye-catching appearance and flexibility (not to mention our top-quality coffee) means that we have travelled to provide drinks at events throughout the UK and even overseas.
And when not at events, we are busy on our coffee trikes every day keeping the good folk of Cardiff fully caffeinated. You can find us in Bute Park and along the Taff Trail every day, and we also have regular office rounds, providing freshly brewed coffee to workplaces around the city centre. If you are based in Cardiff and want to add your office to our daily route then get in touch!
We serve our own top-secret blend of ‘Handlebar Barista Coffee’. And we are extremely proud of it.
Our formula has been specially crafted alongside a local roastery using a blend of the finest South East Asian Arabica beans (all 100% ethically grown and produced). Expect a unique balance of caffeine-loaded energy and a carnival of incredible, complex flavours on the palate.
Interested in trying the great taste of Handlebar Barista coffee in your own home? Our beans are now available by mail-order in 250g bags (either whole bean or ground) for just £7.50 each; or 500g bags for just £14.
Glitz-up parties, fuel you staff, impress clients or get people talking about your brand.
Our fleet of coffee trikes is available to bring mobile coffee and refreshments to events throughout the UK and beyond. All our vehicles are completely self-sufficient and off-grid, with onboard water supply, waste collection and gas powered espresso machine (which also runs on mains electricity when gas is prohibited).

We are hugely excited to be working with Cardiff Council to be serving coffee, drinks and snacks from mobile coffee points in Bute Park and on the Taff Trail.
Our fleet is spread across 3 sites in the north of the park – the Blackweir Changing Rooms; the Blackweir Bridge (Taff Trail side) and in the Galablfa Woods next to Talybont student residences.
We are open 7 days a week (weather dependant!), serving from each site at different times. Visit the link at the top of the page for full details of opening times, or please contact us for more information.
We’re not always on the move! You can also find the great taste of HB coffee at a number of fixed Cafes, Coffee Stops and Brew Huts around South Wales, which are run by our sister company HB BrewHuts.
You can currently find us at Taffs Well, Pontypridd and Barry Railway Stations, and in the Bute Building in Cardiff University. All units offer the same great taste of HB Coffee and also serve a selection of hot and cold snacks.
