Mobile Espresso Catering Company Brings High-Quality Coffee to Parties Across the U.S.

By Kelly Church

David Salzman is an easy man to please: he enjoys a high-quality double espresso. That's why, in 1993, the New Englander started Espresso Dave's, a mobile catering company that offers espresso bar service at any event, conference or wedding and caffeinate the crowd. Salzman says he started his Portsmouth, NH-based company after going to enough events that served low-quality coffee.

"Give me a double espresso and my day is made," Salzman says. "I started the company out of gastronomic necessity: why couldn't venues serve excellent coffee at an event or conference? While eating wedding cake at my best friend's wedding reception or during a dull business conference talk, why couldn't I get a bold shot of espresso or a silky, smooth latte?"

Espresso Dave's serves Italian-quality, specialty coffees, including handcrafted espresso-based drinks. Baristas prepare espressos, cappuccinos, lattes, mochaccinos and more, hot, iced and frozen. Guests can choose from low-fat milk, soy milk and almond milk (upon request prior to the event), and have a variety of flavor options that are seasonal and even include sugar-free alternatives. Espresso Dave's also offers guests luxurious chai tea lattes.

When Espresso Dave's was founded, it broke new ground in the coffee industry. Salzman says, at the time, Starbucks hadn't found its way to the New England region yet and residents were living off Dunkin' Donuts brews. Over the years, Salzman has brought single and multiple coffee carts to events primarily in New England but has been all over the country. In fact, he has served some of the biggest names in Hollywood: Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Kevin Bacon and more.

Espresso Dave's can be recruited for events online through their website Clients can request a quote for service at any wedding, party or event around the country.
