Tinman opened for business in May 2015 and operates at a variety and locations around Auckland as well as at events and private bookings. 

The 1967 Citroen H Van was imported from Europe in June 2014. It started life as a carpenter's delivery van in Provence, Southern France. A tough working life followed by years of neglect sitting outside providing a home to French wildlife took its toll on the little van. To get the van back on the road required a complete restoration which was painstakingly carried out before being transformed into a Coffee and Ice Cream van. Its been a labour of love and the Citroen is now back to as good as new (maybe better than when it left the Paris factory). Fondly named René (French for "Born Again"), the van is now serving Coffee Supreme coffee, lovingly crafted on a La Marzocco espresso machine. Seasonal cabinet food is be available and we scoop premium Kapiti Ice Cream in the summer months.   

The Tinman Van is also available to hire complete with barista for your function or event. Contact us by email to make an enquiry.
