Say hello to the gorgeous coffee caravan, Cups Canteen.
Cups Canteen is the newest and trendiest coffee stop to grace our region thanks to Geelong’s Craig and Steph Willian.
Their first business venture together as a couple, Cups Canteen has been a long-time dream, and embracing the opportunity to live a slower pace of life, they decided to explore their passions and vision for the future by opening their own vintage, coffee caravan.
“We were really busy with Craig’s career and always on the move for a few years, and we finally took a step back and decided that we really wanted more from life,” Steph explains.
“Since this realisation, we’ve been able to achieve so much, and this adventure is the beginning of us being able to focus on our own future.”
After only returning to the region in August last year to be closer to friends and family, the couple stumbled upon a tired 1979 T2 Kombi in Torquay, and after one drive down Beach Road, they were sold.
Providing a host of stunning coastal summer drives, the lively duo spent the last five months completing restoring their Kombi van, spawning their mobile coffee haven.
Injected with a fresh and modern take on bohemian style, Cups Canteen is set to become Mount Duneed’s most wholesome purveyors of damn fine cups of coffee, parked daily at the corner of Boundary Road and Sovereign Drive.
Launching this weekend from 7am to 2pm (proving a pandemic can’t quash this couple’s dreams), you’ll find Cups Canteen and their vintage Kombi slinging Surf Coast Coffee Roasters Coffee, black and herbal teas, hot choccies, and the very best homemade sweets – delights guaranteed to be a welcomed addition to the region’s tranquil outer suburbs.
“We are both avid coffee lovers,” Craig reveals. “We will be providing locally roasted coffee using Surf Coast Coffee Roasters beans. Steph is a pastry chef and will be whipping up a freshly baked selection of sweets including muffins, brownies and cakes.
“We want to provide a great local spot for coffee and catchups with friends for the Mount Duneed community.”
Fingers crossed the weather turns it on for the team this weekend.
Find them at the corner of Boundary Road and Sovereign Drive in Mount Duneed from 7am Saturday and Sunday. Keep up to date via Instagram.
