“This is a maker’s maker’s maker. As found outside the cafeteria of a national lab in Tsukuba, Japan, this is a 60’s VW Van converted into a mobile barrista. Note the homey details on the inside (wooden decks, tiled counters) and the generally comfortable feeling that it evokes. A fantastically clever mixture of japanese efficiency and european design. And it makes excellent coffee! Good coffee is still tricky to find in Japan, so I’m doubly in love with it. “Link.

    no, good coffee is everywhere here in Japan. There’s a similar van in southern Japan made from an old 50’s toyota truck. I’ll see if I can find a picture of it.

    I don’t know why the one I’ve seen advertises selling bananas tho.
