This one of a kind café is a result of lots of whimsical chats, long drawn meetings, brainstorming sessions over coffee and the dreams of six travelers. A storytelling café in a van – Café Bean here Bean There took to the road this year as a pilot. A collaborative project between Purple Mangoes and three independent professionals, this café on wheels traveled from Chandigarh to Ahmedabad, sparking off conversations, meeting people, picnicking with strangers and opening up small intimate spaces to celebrate the cities and the stories each one held.
Every day, greeted with warmth, admiration and generosity we parked somewhere, opened up our little kitchen in the back of our van and invited people to share a little something about themselves to experience the magic in conversations. The fairy lights, soft music, huge city maps, traveling letterbox, colourful expression walls and the lovely teas and coffees that our humble kitchen sent out created this magical space that called out for smiles and uninhibited vulnerability.
Truly a community café…it has been shaped by the energy and stories of the large, ever growing community that has touched us.
