If your translation skills aren’t that good and you haven’t guessed already, the Motore folk run their mobile coffee stall from the back of a motor vehicle. A beautifully restored Piaggo Ape van, to be precise. They have a real passion for coffee and keep it local by sourcing their own blends from Sheffield master coffee roaster Pollards.
Motore can be found parked up on Howard Street on midweek days in all weathers, and is conveniently right on the pathway into or out of Sheffield railway station – so there’s no excuse for having a bad brew on the train or on your way to work. We opt for their perfect flat white and one of their unpronounceable but delicious Sicilian pastries.
The Motore team can now also be found running a sit-down cafe in the lovely Union St co-working space.
Motore features in a short film we made with Sheffield Hallam Uni, alongside a bunch of the city's other food and drink favourites – watch below.
