Coffee Roaster Introduction: Flying Horse Coffee

Best Coffee's roastery guide is a compilation of the very best, tried & tested coffee roasters from around the world. We’ve hand-selected a small collection of amazing coffees for you to sample. Not all coffees are created equal, and not all coffees make it into our shop. So we’re starting a series of articles shining a light on our chosen roasteries to explain why we picked them for your drinking delight.

Flying Horse Coffee

Where: London

Who: Flying Horse was founded by Jack Bradshaw and Phillip Way.

Since when: 2018

Why: We like Flying Horse for their slick branding and impeccable roasts. As well as their popular house espresso blend, they also seasonally source single origins to explore & keep things fresh.

What’s the story: After meeting on Coffee Jobs Board, Jack and Phillip joined forces to open a roastery in the newly created Mare St Market. From a hole in the wall they serve coffee & sell bags of beans to their customers. They boast 2 cafés, after opening one at Television Centre, now fans of their coffee can find it in the East and West of London or order freshly roasted beans online.

Sustainability credentials:

Flying Horse Sustainability credentials

Flying Horse source their coffee seasonally via a responsible importing partner which has long-standing buying arrangements with farmers and producers.

Their packaging is fully-recyclable, made from sugarcane bioplastic which is carbon-negative in production. They also work with a retail bag supplier which supports ‘1% for the planet’ and The Seabin project’ which works on ocean clean-up missions and reducing pollution.

Our favourite coffees:

Tanzania Yetu Tamu PB filter

Tanzania Yetu Tamu PB filter – ‘Yetu Tamu’ translates as “our coffee is sweet”. The first coffee grown in this region dates back to the 19th Century planted by catholic missionaries.

This seasonal coffee is a peaberry lot which produces beautiful uniformity in the appearance while offering a super juicy and fruity tasting coffee. Tasting notes of mango, cherry and bubblegum.

Bio blend Morning Strength

Bio blend Morning Strength - Flying Horse Coffee has selected a blend of Organic coffees from Peru, Indonesia and India to best represent what they sell at our coffee shops, but in a vibrant little capsule. Tasting notes of butterscotch and chocolate.
