I have a espresso cart that might work. We bought the cart hoping to start up something here in Corvallis, OR but ran out of time(we are full time college students). It is an indoor/outdoor cart on wheels that is self-contained including a handwashing sink, fridge, hot water heater, two fresh water tanks, grey water tank. The espresso machine is a 2-group Reneka Basic. The idea on this is to purchase a building and cart seperately to save a lot of money. The cart is $5,000 with everything but we are willing to negotiate. Please email me for pictures or questions.

I am going into a permanent space with my business Java Jolt and am in the process of selling my Espresso Van. This Van is fully certified and operational. It had a major overhaul on the Olin 6500 watt generator as well as the engine: power steering box, timing belt, water pump, radiator, new tires and rims (in July this year 2004)-everything including the brakes, engine were rebuilt within the last 10,000 miles.

The espresso machine is excellent a La San Marco 2 group, with a La San Marco Grinder. The Van also has a 2 30 gallon water tanks, with grey water holding tank; one 3 group sink and one hand washing sink. I have about 10 filters left for the filtering system.

There is an amazing amount of cabinetry to store your consumables as well. All in all a very nicely customized vehicle especially for specialty coffee drinks.

The great thing about this is that it has the Alameda County, CA stamp of approval as well as the California State Stamp certificate that is good as long as the vehicle is in operation. The Alameda County health and welfare stamp is a yearly certificate that will last until 2005, and is given out yearly. This is a very difficult county to pass on and this vehicle should be able to pass anywhere if it is passed here.

I have seen a asking price for a vehicle similar to this going for $50,000, but I am asking for $22,000. I can send along pics if you are interested.
