My name’s Dan. I love coffee. I mean, I really love the stuff. It’s become not just a passion, but a way of life. And life is too short to drink bad coffee

Dan Pullen

My Story

You name it - I’ve done it. Everything from washing dishes in Pizza Hut to managing multi million turnover restaurants and bars. I’ve travelled the world and run several successful businesses over the years and coffee has always played a big part.

Times are tough on the high street now though and costs are always spiralling upwards. It dawned on me how great it would be to bring great coffee to the people instead of relying on people coming to my great coffee. And that’s where Sussex Coffee Trucks was born

What I Offer

I am truly passionate about all things coffee and aim to give you the best taste experience using coffee from my friends at Lindfield Coffee Works.

The Coffee I serve isn’t just fantastic, it’s ethically sourced, and the Speciality Coffee Roaster I work with pay substantially over fair trade prices for their speciality beans. Many of which offer Direct Trade Coffee, travelling out to buy directly from farmers and their families guaranteeing a great price. I love the fact that I can trace the Coffee I use all the way back to the individual farmer who grew it.

I use the finest onboard equipment and an ‘on demand’ grinder ensuring perfect quality each and every time.
I have a couple of fridges to keep things ice cold and blenders in the Summer for smoothies and frappes.

No matter what you are celebrating or promoting, I can enhance the experience.

Weddings, Events &
Corporate Hire

Looking for a vintage van for a wedding or private event? Then look no further! Private hire couldn’t be easier. Sussex Coffee Trucks is the perfect addition! and looks great in photos.

My unique mobile platform allows me to fit perfectly into a wide range of events. My beautiful truck fits right in at corporate events, formal affairs, bustling film sets, and laid back parties. I can use the truck as a mobile café, prepare specialty foods like wood fired pizza to any location, or simply deliver hot or cold drinks to any size crowd at any location. I can tailor service to an intimate private gathering or a massive conference. I can provide pre and post fuel for your park run or cycle sportive or even a midway feed station. I can warm your guests up in the winter and cool them down during the hot summer. I can even work with you to create signature drinks for your specific event. You name it, I can do it.

You can hire me for a morning, lunch or evening, for the day or longer. I can even stay over and offer your camping and overnight guests excellent coffee and croissants the following morning to soothe their aching heads!

I can remove the trucks magnetic signage too if you want a clean vintage look, or put your message in its place. No matter what you are celebrating or promoting, I can enhance the experience.

My Coffee Truck

The truck itself was born in France in 1974 and was used to transport horses. She rested up around the turn of the century and was brought back to life in 2019 by having a bare metal restoration and rebuild. I then project managed a bespoke rear to the vehicle giving me an incredible space to prepare and serve the finest coffee and cake.

The truck is 4.40m long, 1.85m wide and 2.80m high with 3 serving hatches.
The coffee machine is duel fuel and we are gas safety checked and PAT tested annually.
And with a 5 star EHO inspection you can be sure that Sussex Coffee Trucks is a professional operation.

Naturally I also keep temperature and cleaning records and have more than adequate public liability insurance. (£5 Million)

Doing our bit for the world

We can’t ignore the state of the world. We are having a serious impact on it and we need to make changes. Every business should be trading responsibly and I like to think I play a small part.

The coffee is ethically sourced and I use recyclable cups and lids. I don’t use plastics where possible and have collection bins for the rubbish which I’ll recycle. And as I go along I’ll be constantly looking at ways to be greener as it’s something we should all take very seriously.
