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

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 specialty vehicles includes 2 vintage pedal-powered coffee trikes, 1 unique Prosecco trike, 1 beautiful Ice Cream trike and an electric coffee tuk-tuk. All our vehicles are all fully customisable so our clients can choose the style or message they’d like to have for their service!

All our set ups are available to hire for events and promotions of all kinds throughout the UK, and their eye-catching appearance and flexibility (not to mention our top-quality service) means that we have traveled to provide drinks at events throughout the UK and even overseas.

And when not at events, we are busy serving from our range of vehicles and bars every day keeping the good folk of Cardiff fully caffeinated. You can find us in Bute Park, by Blackweir bridge and we also have permanent outlets at Central Station (South entrance) and Heath Park West Cardiff University Ty’r Wyddfa building providing freshly brewed coffee every weekday. We also have permanent spots at Riverside Farmers market every Sunday and Llandovery Farmers Market once a month. If you are based in Cardiff or Llandovery and want to try out coffee then head to one of our outlets, you can’t miss us!


With our carbon footprint always in mind we try to source all our products as locally as possible. This is one of the reasons we use Welsh Coffee Co. coffee beans at all our outlets and events, the other reason being they are just so good! The beans are roasted just down the road from us in Cowbridge and are delivered weekly to us as fresh as can be!

We have a great relationship with Welsh Coffee Co. and have used their great coffee for years, if you love it as much as we do and you’d like a some to take home get in touch as we also sell it by the 250g bag.


Promote your brand, fuel your staff or guests, impress clients or get people talking about your company.

Our fleet of coffee, prosecco and ice cream trikes are available to bring drinks 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).

Festivals & Food Markets


We are hugely excited to be working with Cardiff Council to be serving coffee, drinks, snacks and ice creams from our location by Blackweir Bridge.

We are positioned in a great spot in the heart of Bute Park on one of our coffee TukTuks. From here we serve a range of hot drinks, snacks, ice creams and more. Whether you’re walking the dog, smashing the Park Run or cycling the Taff Trail it’s the perfect pit stop to grab a rest and something to eat or drink!

We are open on weekends and school holidays (weather dependant!), serving from Blackweir bridge.

Pop up bars & COFFEE STOPS

We’re not always on the move! You can also find us at 3 fixed locations around the city, Bute Park, Central Station and Heath Park West.

If you work close by or pass us then don’t forget to pop in and grab a coffee, snack, sandwich, cold drink, ice cream or whatever takes your fancy.

We offer a convenient pop-up coffee bar service for hire that can cater to any need. Need a pick-me-up for your office?  We can create a one-time treat.  Have a permanent or semi-permanent location that would benefit from a dedicated coffee bar? We can design, build, and operate a solution for you, no matter the space or time frame.  Just get in touch and let us fuel your caffeine needs!
