‘Grounds’ for new beginnings
From military trailer to coffee trailer, Defender Blender was conceived from the love of Landrover Defenders, coffee and the desire to get ‘out and about’!
Sat in a office for over 20 years drinking coffee, we decided it was time to share our love of the dark liquid with like minded people, grab the opportunity of spending time out doors whilst meeting lots of new people across lots of exciting events.
Having visited numerous conversion companies up and down the country we thankfully, through a random phone call to a gas engineer, heard about Dougie Lawrie of Lawrie Fabrication – just up the road! Not so keen to cut into our beloved Landy, a genius idea was suggested…
Off we went to Grantham to collect our ex MOD Army Penman trailer – Dougie had promised us it would make the perfect coffee trailer! As soon as we saw it we knew we were on to a winner. Designed right from the start to emulate the back of our classic Defender 110, with its smooth round lines and solid base we left Dougie to crack on…
We now have what we think is a fabulous and quirky looking coffee trailer that will fit smartly alongside any event. We have a few ‘extras’ up our sleeve to offer as part of your event requirements so please, get in touch with us and lets chat coffee – food – music!
