Moka Mafia is headed by Alex, a micro-lot coffee roasting geek & production manager Aya, who in 2015 came up with the idea of squeezing a full artisan coffee hangout into the back of a Ford Transit.
They brought it to London’s film sets, caffeinating hard working crews with their custom blends & unique concoctions. The van’s interior was lovingly decked out like a log cabin, Italian coffee machines and grinders were added, and soon Moka Mafia’s luscious coffee aromas & laid back vibes were a ‘must have' on any film set. A larger second van was added to the stable and now they tour around the country, from location to location, wherever film crews are in need of excellent brews, brilliant brownies & fine espressos.
"Alex and his coffee potions kept me going for the months and extra long days of the Crown. I guzzled his elixirs and out popped Princess Margaret. He’s magic and so are his coffees"
Helena Bonham Carter
An army marches on its stomach, and The Crown marches on Alex's coffee. We basically wouldn’t survive without him and his van of marvels.
"The only thing that gets me through the day"
"Coffee fit for a Queen! We love Moka Mafia, our unit love Moka Mafia, book them and make your day go great"
Producer 'THE CROWN'
"The whole crew perks up when Moka Mafia rolls in — the most essential tech van on any film unit! Alex's excellent own-roast coffee, varied menu, top tunes and, above all, cheery attitude even on the coldest, wettest days, brings a smile to the faces of our hardworking crew"
Director 'THE CROWN'
"Alex’s coffee is the best coffee I’ve ever tasted on OR off set. And he’s a saint to go along with it. (He also has Oat milk for hipster allergic types like me)"
