Established at The Mill on Angas Street, Will Brown’s modest coffee cart has since travelled all over the state doing summers down by the surf at Port Elliot and private parties in-between.

But now Will has found a permanent-temporary place to call home on North Terrace.

Employed in the visual merchandise department of the Australian Fashion Labels juggernaut at the same location, Will saw the potential to set up a home at 233 North Terrace for the morning walkers.

“I always imagined being set up on a doorstep like this,” says Will between taking cash and making coffees.

“The concept behind Kindling was always about making the most of under utilised spaces.”

Indeed the very measurements of Will’s cart are designed to fit inside lifts and vans and doorways so he can get the coffee to the people, where they need it most.

An elegantly resolved design, the Kindling Coffee cart is constructed from the building material most commonly used to form concrete. The single-grip La Marzocco GS 3 more than capably supplies demand on North Terrace while Will’s deft touch puts a little bit of golden brown magic in every paper cup.

It’s a little bit of imagination in an otherwise very traditional stretch of Adelaide.

And though Will’s work isn’t revolutionary it’s ideas like Kindling that keep pushing our city forward; thank goodness the coffee helps us keep up.
