Is This New Zealand’s Most Isolated Coffee Cart?


On a remote roadside in Central Otago, The Wee Red Coffee Shed rises like a mirage.

It’s the last place most people expect to find a coffee cart and drivers frequently pump the brakes as they pass, owner Stacey Weir says.

“We’re in a 100kph zone in the middle of nowhere so people can’t believe what they’re seeing.

“A lot of them turn around to come back for a better look.”

Half an hour’s drive from Alexandra and 35 minutes from Ranfurly, the cart is about as close to the dead centre of Central as it gets.
