What we need from you
- an onsite contact available to answer questions when the barista arrives (30-45 minutes before service is scheduled to begin) and throughout the duration of the service
- one dedicated outlet within 10 feet of our cart. our equipment requires a dedicated, 20 amp outlet. please ensure we will not be sharing power with any other devices or equipment in order to avoid power outages.
- a sink nearby for the barista to use before and after the service. please note, we do not need to be directly next to a sink during the service.
- a 6’x6′ space in which to set up our cart, as well as room for a few people to gather
- please take into consideration that preparation of beverages will produce some noise when choosing a location
- our cart is on wheels, please choose a location that does not require the use of stairs. in inclement weather, please ensure our barista has a safe place to roll the cart in by clearing sidewalks of snow and debris.
- our baristas require one hour after they finish serving to clean up and break down the cart. please ensure they will have access to the sink and cart area for the full hour.
- payment in full is expected at the time of service. while we are happy to work with you ahead of time to receive payment at a different time, a late fee will be applied to payments overdue by more than 30 days.
