40 Hurstmere Road, Takapuna, Auckland Mon – Sun 7.30am – 4pm This espresso bar nestled away in the lanes of Takapuna is not to be missed. A coffee shop inside an old Kombi van, just the decor is worth going for. Serving Havana coffee, you can only expect the smoothest of blends for your take-away or have-here caffeine fix. Behind the kombi van enchanting fairy lights and seating give you a chance to enjoy snacks you’ve picked up from the cabinet. Kombi Coffee sits among the new hospitality centre of the North Shore. Perfect for a quick coffee stop between beach and shopping!

Popped in on Ben in his sweet Kombi the other day to grab a sneaky Friday pick me up and coffee was on my mind as I started to psych myself up for the weekend. Ben twisted my arm and convinced me to grab a super juice - which I was unsure about at first. Lordy that thing tasted good - it was packed with lemon, ginger and all sorts of other goodness and livened me up even more than a coffee would have. Will be back next time I'm in town to try more funky juices and a coffee - as I've heard Ben brews up the best coffees in Takapuna.

I visited Ben Story at his digs in Takapuna's sweet precinct Fortieth and Hurstmere recently to check out his awesome Havana coffee served out of a Kombi. Ben's a coffee aficionado, travelling to Auckland by way of the The Lyttleton Coffee Company and a stint spent in the cafe capital of New Zealand, Welly. I love the fact that he's also brought his passion and refinement for the art of coffee with him to Takapuna. I'd indulged the night before too so he served me up a delicious cold-pressed juice of carrot, lemon and a whole lot of other goodies. It certainly put a pep in my step.
