The Small Business Counter: Curbside Coffee

WE at people magazine believe in the small business enterprise as a driver of our economy. We are strong supporters of individuals who exhibit an entrepreneurial spirit and who are creating jobs. And that’s why we want to give them our full support.

Who Are They?


ONE day while gazing at the bottom of an empty coffee cup, feeling groovy like only a good cup of coffee can make you feel, the idea of a mobile coffee truck took seed. Think about it: it’s like the adult version of the ice cream truck; coffee on the go – anytime, anywhere. In the fast-paced society we live in, it makes sense that your coffee should be as mobile as you are. And so it was that after a few too many rounds of strong caffeine, Curbside Coffee was born.

What Do They Do?

CURBSIDE COFFEE are a couple of regular ol’ coffee junkies who wanted to share the love. Their barista knows his coffee and will throw in a lame joke for free. Their coffee beans are responsibly sourced and perfectly blended from Rwanda, Uganda and Ethiopia. They are locally roasted and ground in their little blue and black truck to bring you only the freshest and tastiest coffee. Besides the delicious coffees, they also off era full range of hot drinks, from flat whites to chai lattes. Not in the mood for something hot? Then take it cold! Curbside Coffee’s delicious range of fresh fruit ice crushers, coffee freezos and flavoured iced lattes will quench any thirst. Complement one of their drinks with a tasty morsel – they usually have muffins or brownies on the go. They are socially responsible and use only eco-friendly, bio degradable products wherever possible.

Where Are They Based?

CURBSIDE COFFEE is based in and around Johannesburg. When they aren’t parked on your nearest pavement, you can find them at sporting events, school functions, church fetes, bar mitzvahs and even your grandma’s garage sale. So basically anywhere. No event is too big or too small for Curbside Coffee. Got a crazy idea for an event? They love crazy! Try them! The little blue and black truck that can!

Who Benefits?

IF you fancy yourself a coffee junkie, or you like a bit of spice with your ice, then pull in for a hot or cold drink that will satisfy any craving. Whether you are a corporate business or a bride-to-be or a Christmas-in- July market, the little blue and black coffee truck has a tailor-made offering for you.

Robert is a descendant of the stout Macpherson Clan out of the Scottish Highlands and can claim Robert the Bruce as a far-off cousin. He suffers from a severe form of Collectors’ Disease and sports an assortment of small valuable curious. In his spare time he works a full-time job, but his real prowess lies within his musical aptitude as a drummer. He is a semi-amateur of the instrument and although he claims beating a drumhead one of the more primal sensations man can experience, he feels it to be an unnatural exercise to pursue. If he could have his way, he’d have breakfast every meal of the day and is a fan of all things Roald Dahl.
